    Pros

    Generally friendly colleagues; easy going yet hard working environment; very good products.

    Cons

    No significant opportunities for advancement or lateral moves, unless at the larger US sites; processes rather ad hoc; some office politics to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    You can't keep doing things the same way yet expect different results: invest in improving processes and in infrastructure.

    Pros

    Different challenges to work on. Get to know hardware while implementing software analysis tools.

    Cons

    Working with others at remote sites can be challenging at some times, but interesting and a good challenge at others.

    Advice to Management

    Make technical ladder performance-based, rather than peer-election based. It's implemented too much like a "you're in-the-club" system.

    Pros

    Excellent training program for student hires, promotional opportunities in early years, competitive pay, opportunities for meaty jobs very quickly

    Cons

    No real value placed on experience, promotions based on potential as opposed to actual results

    Advice to Management

    It is great to have young energetic people infused into the orgnaisation, but it should be tempered with actual accomplishments. This will help with management credibility with any senior individual contributors.
