    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The exposure to new technology in telecom and fiber optics is unmatched. The engineers are brilliant and very good at teaching younger engineers about the tricks of the trade. There is a great sense of cameraderie and people will go out of their way to help out others.

    Cons

    There is an awful lot of red tape. Engineers are constantly hampered by paperwork requirements, which obviously results in less time designing and testing. There is a sort of struggle between departments, even when working towards the same goals. For example, there is a constant struggle between software and hardware engineers to accomplish their respective goals if toes are getting stepped on.

    Advice to Management

    Let engineers spend more time in the lab and designing new products, rather than constantly doing status updates.
