Pros

Good product. Good diversity. Good locations.

Cons

Communication between leaders and employee in some areas very good...in others..abysmal.
Ideas of employees are squelched in the non-engineering areas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

All the surveys hired done will not replace open communication. Building trust everyday must start with leaders and those in immediate line of supervision. Open communcation is championed, but does not happen in practice. There are reasons people are leaving the company. Find out. Mid level managers are pressured to make unrealistic numbers, and they don't credit the solutions to the people who really figure out the solutions.

    Pros

    Good infrastructure support. Strong processes for everything. Lean culture. Great place to go if you want to homestead in an engineering company. Strong set of talented engineers.

    Cons

    Lost the entrepreneurial spirit that gave birth to the company. Has NO consulting or engineering services division to offer to its customers. Just a products company. Very little motivation to leave IOWA, hence, very insular cloistered environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break out of Iowa (metaphorically and literally); be where the action is. Get more forward facing engineers interacting with customers, rather than just managers.
