    Pros

    There was a real focus on the software, and keeping the engineers happy. More so than I have ever seen at any other company.

    Cons

    Under resourced. Our internal and external customers asked for a lot - there was always too much to do, and not enough time to do it in.

    Advice to Management

    Overall a fine job. We had a vision of the way forward, and apart from minor issues along the way, we tended to execute that vision.

  2. Good lifestyle, poor pay
