    Really depends on higher managed you meet

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsActive, aggressive culture and environment to push things to make it work as 'Speed of light'

    ConsMost decisions are not made by engineering, but depends on higher management / marketing decision even though it'll harm whole project in a long term projection as an engineering perspective. Organization is so called 'matrix' and each management are related with lot of complexity, so making management to accept engineering perspective opinion is always time-consuming, challenging experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEven though there's marketing / management pressure exists, sometimes need to listen engineer's opinions which possibly cause delay of schedules. Just hurrying and put people not qualified enough eventually will hurt whole project.
