    Pros

    Fast-paced, technically challenging, wide variety of work. Good pay and benefits, growth opportunities, comfortable, cordial office environment. I have seen zero harassment or gender, race or other bias at my (individual contributor) level.

    Cons

    Customers only call when they are having a problem. Many problems are the fault of the company or its suppliers. Commercial issues between the company and its suppliers cannot be solved fast enough to satisfy customers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your design engineers! Stop using so many suppliers and make more parts in house.
