    I have been working at Future Electronics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy work technically, Salary is fine for work output - being remote is everything for work/life balance. You learn the industry and they have smart engineering for a disty.

    Cons

    They slice and dice the data into pillars and initiatives for Outside Sales and FAE orgs. Some of it makes sense. They changed the MBO to nearly unobtainable. No real incentive to drive the metrics if you cannot achieve them. If you have no other options and you like wholesale changes, this is for you. This is not a real FAE job, it is technical sales if you were direct with a semiconductor/electronics manufacturer.

    Advice to Management

    Centralized organizations are difficult to maintain, you will drive out good workers and be left with average.
