    Too large of a company, can't move up unless our are in a circle of "friends". Upper mgmt is too thick, too many outsourcing of engineering jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Think of the cost benefit of remote engineering, create a more diverse atmosphere, be aggressive against competitors like in the old days. Still too many VPs hanging around w.o enough charter.
