    Pros

    You can touch many IPs and increase your design experience very quickly. Rush tapeout and fast debug ability is needed.

    Doesn't have much time to do the detail design. The managers review the project not based on technical issue but personal emotion. Overtime working is a must.

    Advice to Management

    Find the right to man to do the right things.
