Approves of CEO

Pros

Great benefits
Flexible hours
Very smart and friendly co-workers
Opportunities for advancement in software engineering exist, if you are willing to speak up for yourself and make management aware of your desires

Cons

QA department is woefully under-staffed
Product Developers have too much control over engineering - they often tell engineers exactly which projects to work on and how to do them

Advice to Management

We are a software company, to succeed, you'll need to ensure that good software engineers want to work here. Lack of support for engineering decisions from senior management and product development make the good engineers walk away.
