Pros

Access to great engineering tools and other knowledgeable engineers. Diverse product line that keeps the job from getting boring. As a young engineer this job is a great continuing education. Good discounts and benefits.

Cons

Salary is low because powersports is a desirable industry to be in. Lots of politics, paperwork and pointless presentations. The fun part of the design work is buried under making schedules, schedules and more schedules to meet impossible deadlines set by upper management. The agendas, meeting minutes and test requests take up too large a portion of an engineers day to be productive and successful.
