    Pros

    Many engineering assignments carry a high level of technical responsibility with room for learning and growth. It is an international company that prides itself on "diversity."

    Cons

    Not necessarily stable employment. They hire like mad for a few months and turn around and lay off without missing a beat. As a corporation they pride themselves on it, and seem to think it's a good thing to regularly slash the ranks. The top HR and bean counters don't seem to realize the negative effect it has on morale, nor on ability to carry out their mission of developing and making products. Inexperienced people are left holding the bag where gaps of experienced staff are gone. The management thinks nothing of regularly booting out employees with many years of positive contributions, with no notice, no going away luncheon and no dignity. So it's very much an employee beware situation. Extremely few people get to retire willingly at age 65. Often, the experience level of staff leaves something to be desired, but they can sometimes count on suppliers to pick up the slack. There is more planning for continuity in staff with union level staff than exempt level, where there is virtually no coherent plan. Decisions are made so high up, they don't see the detrimental effects of capability at a working level.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize. Humanize.
