    Pros

    Good technology to work on, people are some of the best engineers I've worked for. Money is good.

    Cons

    Last 4 months of 2012, we literally worked every day (almost). I think I had 4 days total off during that time. Managers have no clue of how to motivate people to stay here.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open in discussing status of projects and upcoming technologies with employees. Keep us in the loop!
