    Pros

    At least for me. I worked on many different technologies so I've been quite happy. This company has been best for my resume.

    Cons

    So far, not much in the way of career growth, though monetary compensation has been good. Some middle management appears to stifle communication.

    Advice to Management

    Sensitivity training necessary for all managers, especially a few middle managers. Time is not so critical that only managers get to talk. Allow a few minutes for employees to communicate as well. This is not asking too much and will improve the overall understanding and performance.

    Pros

    Great Working environment among engineers. Things get done.

    Cons

    Upper management only cares about their own career path. Direction is not transparent to employees. Back stabbing is a daily tasks for management level. No risk taking from upper management, only care about not making mistakes. Some upper management doesn't even have the "technical knowledge" to run the department

    Advice to Management

    Don't listen to your direct reports, talk to the lower level management as well as employee to get a "feel" of the "real" culture
