Solid company but slow to move

Engineering Manager (Current Employee) Methuen, MA

ProsVery solid technologies
Strong engineering teams
Strong community
Excellent customer relationships

ConsSome stovepipes are very evident
Very little communication outside of one's own division
Inter-department sabotage was not unknown
A distinctive bias toward education over achievement when looking to promote internally.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote cross communication between your engineering teams. This could surely create products that will add more value than the sum of its parts.
Understand that promotions should be based on merit, not just education.
