    Pros

    Generous 401(k) match (100% to 4%, + extra 4%). Very family friendly. work can be as hands on as you like. Proactive toward making changes for the better.

    Cons

    Some antiquated systems and hierarchies still exist that can slow everything down. Engineering change management system is absolutely abysmal and requires too much manual work to process a change.
