    I worked at Anritsu full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Luckily for Anritsu, some of the team members are good at what they do and great to work with. Usually though, they are the ones who don’t get recognition.

    Cons

    Politics (everybody covers their a.. for fear of getting laid off), incompetent management at all levels, little or no software development methodology or validation process, bad quality products, which exposes support engineers to verbal abuse from customers. Some of the low level managers seem to think that psychological harassment is OK. Horrible experience.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back, elaborate a long term strategy for your software products, improve on software quality. Respect your employees.
