    Current Employee - QE Engineer

    Pros

    Brilliant, dedicated, and open top management and individual associates. Lots of great front-end oportunities for well-qualified candidates.

    Cons

    Some key middlemanagement closed-minded and some can be or support micro-managers. Can be extraordinarily difficult to change positions & departments - Internal-hiring is completely broken.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much of middle-management is dead-wood. Prune those with the gaul to blame their own failures on the suposid lack of employee performance.
