Pros

Some of the best and brightest engineers developing complex software products and challenging hardware / mechanical designs. In general employees - cross-functionally - are great to work with.

Cons

The infrastructure and processes need improvement as every software development delivery needs to be micro managed. Design quality of hardware products are only now improving, but the effort to maintain happy customers who have legacy products is challenging .

Advice to Management

Need more compassion to employees (i.e,. every quarter there is an unforeseen reorg / downsizing). As the job market picks up there will be a mad dash out the door from frustrated employees who feel there is no security working at Mercury.
