“Pros: Salary; paternal leave; intelligent co-workers. Cons: Breakneck pace; regulations; unrealistic expectations without working 50+ hours a week; intensely metric-focused.” —Current manufacturing engineer
“Pros: Good growth opportunities for younger engineers; senior employees willing to help younger engineers develop and grow. Cons: Difficult to move up the ladder; slow development pace; not great at innovation and risk-taking; pay could be better.” —Current R&D engineer
“Pros: Leadership support and budgets available. Cons: Disjointed across business and innovation.” —Former employee
“Pros: Good benefits but converging to average; overall a growing and stable company so you should have the opportunity to grow; generally not a rat-race company; good mission. Cons: There is a bit of complacency up the management layers; not the drive and curiosity saw elsewhere; comfortable.” —Former employee
