    Pros

    Engineering Autonomy is great, I am in charge of my own work and do not need to weave through a hierarchy for most decisions.
    Work environment is friendly and open communication is encouraged

    Cons

    Inconsistent management styles account for some inefficiencies

    Advice to Management

    Continue the effort to hire more Engineers and invest in development, the path is set you just need to keep going.
    Find paths for Engineers to take, multiple tiers are needed.
