Pros

Fast paced - projects vary in complexity - you are responsible for your part of the project/projects and you interface with many other groups to achieve completion.

Cons

If you are in a mechanical engineering group you are are a second class citizen, so to speak, to the electrical engineers - it is this way by design - many mechanical engineering decisions are made by management people who are electrical engineers or have an electrical engineering background- not the best thing if you are a mechanical engineer.

Advice to Management

Do something to end the layoffs- you have lost many good people - and your reputation is suffering!
