Advice to Management

Trust your engineers to do the right thing.

    Pros

    The pay and the benefits were very fair. Very good training programs, well-organized and updated. Good flexibility and I was able to move between departments when that made the most sense for my career path. Products are outstanding. I had a couple great mentors while working here.

    Cons

    There was a little too much turnover, and with the volume and pace of the work required that sometimes made it difficult to stay above water. With the company getting large it became slower-moving the longer I stayed -- difficult to get some initiatives pushed through.

    Advice to Management

    If a little more attention is paid to work-life balance to avoid employee burnout, good things will happen.

  2. Very nice place to work
