Has its good and bad points. Pretty good suite of tools you need to get the work done. Some very cool tech. Some very good people. Good benefits.

WAY too many lower and middle managers, a lot of whom do not know anything, or very little, about engineering.

About 20% of the managers have quite immature attitudes.

Pulled in LOTS of directions - more ... at once. More engineers and techs focused on fewer tasks/problems would alleviate a lot of technical problems.

Most mgrs better at short term redirects of blame than coming up with long term solutions. Perhaps their management doing the same ... - less
