    Pros

    Good engineers, good processes, management has realistic expectations, good perks/benefits, management understands the value engineers bring to the company

    Cons

    Product Management group immature and has little (if any) oversight, no standards, no reviews of their work, no quality, etc... it's quite sad as I think they are really holding back growth.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp entire product management group, get more specialized/expert resources into engineering processes and don't rely on software engineers to do everything. Let them code.
