    Pros

    Engineer still are the key asset of company

    leadership doesn't know how to use the resource.

    Pros

    Cool products, smart people, abundant resources.

    Toxic environment, everyone out for themselves, more time spent covering one's backside rather than working together for the greater good. Poor work-life balance.

    Work hard to instill teamwork and don't reward back-stabbing and the political games.
