    Pros

    I think working at this company is really relaxing

    Cons

    The company needs more structure in terms of technical sense, currently there doesn't seem to be business owners and things get dropped on us from high, where everything is urgent. Also the pay is rather low compared to other places, which makes leaving more attractive

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay, and try to follow an agile approach

    Pros

    Great working environment where you're exposed to different parts of the company and the people creating the technology.

    Cons

    Management seems to be blind to the existential threats to the core businesses. The new CEO is definitely trying to clean up the mess left behind by his predecessor.

    Pros

    Very interesting and challenging problems to be solved. There is the chance to work across multiple groups at the same time. A good place where to make your own difference

    Cons

    very bad management. Same errors again and again ... and again. There should be much more transparency and comunications across the all the groups

    Advice to Management

    Management should be much more engaged with all the engineer, not only for technical tasks but also for business decision and comunications

    Cons

    Frequent Layoffs without any reason.

    Pros

    Relaxed working environment and hours. Good people and it feels like they are trying to make it a good place to work even with the problems the business has been having.

    Cons

    Going through some hard times. Not great for job security and the general consensus is that the pay is too low.
