    Pros

    Great engineers. Can be challenging, exciting work. Many different technologies that continually evolve. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Poor career paths and upward mobility. More often than not people are hired in above rather than being promoted internally.
    Many of the great engineers have moved on due to stagnant remuneration and career advancement.
    HQ gets more attention than other locations. Career advancement more likely there than other locations.
    Top heavy company. It used to be primarily an engineering company. Many years ago it grew significantly and ended up having far too many management positions and resources for the number of engineers.
    Information sharing is a big challenge. Still very silo'd knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on reigniting employee passion and finding more motivating remuneration incentives.
