    Pros

    Sometimes the pay is good--depends upon the group you're in.
    Benefits and bonuses are also good.

    Cons

    Your success--even survival--depend entirely upon the group you're in. Many of the managers simply aren't good managers, and this is fairly common.
    HR is not there for you: HR runs Intel, and what this means is that managers can do no wrong. A number of my managers had multiple sexual harassment charges or were having affairs with their direct reports or alcohol violations--ad nauseum. It was astonishing. But no actions against them were ever taken.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some actual managers.
    Rein in HR, as they control too much of the company, and not in a good way.

    Pros

    Inspiring people and Good coaching. Good place to learn an array of skills.

    Cons

    No collaboration, Weak management and High pressure without recognition

    Advice to Management

    Better structure and less hierarchy to increase innovation rather than staff being Intelised and converted into sheep.

  6. Hostile environment. Workplace bullying.

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent. Safety is the top priority.

    Cons

    No concern whatsoever for employee burnout and health.
    Management is inept and unable to actually manage and inspire their employees--they simply micromanage to an extreme degree and never allow the engineers any professional latitude. The engineers are basically told exactly what to do--any creativity that deviates even slightly is looked upon negatively.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who have bonafide real management experience instead of engineers. They need managers who can inspire people to accomplish the mission. Leading by fear and intimidation shows the management has essentially zero previous real management experience.

    Pros

    The work - when you are allowed to do it - can be quite challenging.

    Cons

    Be prepared to be jammed into - if you are lucky - a 6x6 cube with 4ft walls. No privacy, no ability to concentrate. Be prepared for too many middle managers who are all too busy trying to justify their existence and pay rate, and therefore make tons of pointless busywork. Be prepared for hardline positions that are supposed to be based on data, but are really based on fiefdoms and a fear of people being discovered as incompetent decision makers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your engineers before what few outstanding ones you have get up and leave. You cannot replace the talent that is draining to all your competitors fast enough to stop the loss of key knowledge. Engineers are not sales/marketing people, and are not interchangeable. Domain expertise cannot be replaced.

    Pros

    Sabbatical, Health, Retirement
    Although Work-Life balance is advertised, it is impossible to maintain. It's either work or life :(

    Cons

    Extremely bad people managers. All the good people managers are suppressed and only technical proficiency is stressed as a managerial criterion. So the employees get shafted in the long run and are not looked after.

    Advice to Management

    Get your blinders off!! The employees are your most important asset. If you neglect to man-manage, you drain your "brain".

    Pros

    Some stability but not lately

    Cons

    Management misconduct, Ethics issues, cover up of safety and quality issues, management "image" more important than company interests.
    Ethics forgot from management vocabulary, lack of innovation, creative thinking forbidden, "sausage factory" mindset. Recommend other industries.

    Advice to Management

    Send the elevator down don't hold it, clean up the middle and senior management from non-effective elements, return to basics by valuing people more than equipment. Drive Ethics by example as a key company value.
