    Pros

    Large corp. engineering lab tools and training. Diverse knowledge across eng. staff allows for good collaboration. Management generally supports time to design reliable products.

    Cons

    12 years of continuous downsizing prohibits job growth or moving around within company, raises/bonuses tied to corp. performance which has meant none.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate strategy tends toward chasing opportunities already at their peak rather then planning for long-term. Many projects started and then canceled due to missing market window. Hoping to see new managers brought in with fresh ideas.

  2. Great coworkers and products
