    Pros

    Relaxed working environment with some great people. Hours are flexible as long as your in 10-4 and do your hours etc.

    Cons

    Some things need to be done in a roundabout way due to complex processes and management can be disconnected from he business and make wrong decisions because if it. Career progressions limited in technology only - need to become a manager and more business orientated to progress.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify! Make sure you aren't disconnected from those at the bottom and middle - don't just ask the top. Have a technical career route to keep your best engineers!
