    Pros

    Benefits and compensation maybe. You still can find better though.

    Cons

    Everything else, especially the people and the culture. Full of lies.

    Advice to Management

    Lower management is worse than the regular engineers. Dont talk about change nonstop, do it already! There is a reason why the company is going down. 1500 r&d engineers down to 750 in 3 years. I quit 3 months ago, people still talking about me. Nonstop gossip. Supervisors included, they lead the gossiping as well.
