I'm experienced and here is the best collection of engineering talent I've been around.

PR Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Cedar Rapids, IA

ProsHigh concentration of Industry experts and really smart engineers.
Great place for challenging design work - some really interesting technology and product development that makes a difference.
Opportunity to work with customers (and travel) internationally.

ConsI commute 30min so I can live in Iowa City for culture.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe careful with adjusting the overall benefits package. This place relies on attracting top junior engineers. I'm an outlier - most of the technical and business leadership started here in engineering.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
