Pros

Full responsibility of a product throughout the product life
Wide variety of products to move between in many industries
Strong business focus on financial performance and education

Cons

Little care taken in technical documentation standardization
Focus of business over technical and academic learning
Management focus is not on soft skills of employees or themselves
Long term planning of technology and bigger picture not visible to employees

Advice to Management

Develop your technical employees by encouraging visits to manufacturing w/o a business case. Learning takes place naturally in those environments. Design management training should include working at different design centers for a period of time and soft (people) skills evaluation/training. Communicate more clearly what the plans for technical advancement is in the long term.

    Pros

    There aren't many. Benefits are good but all benefit related questions usually have to be dug up with little help from HR. Confusing answers from HR personnel add to this dilemma.

    Cons

    Stress, impossible task scheduling, impossible delivery times, work hour cuts, "requested Time Off" announcements when third quarter rolls around.
    Employees are no longer #1. Stockholders are.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate your employees and reward them rather than cause hardship based on quarterly projections being missed.
