    Pros

    You get:
    Great pay

    Flexible Hours

    To work with smart talented people

    To work on the cutting edge.

    Cons

    Like everywhere it's the manager who makes your job enjoyable. If you join the wrong team or your team gets a new manager who is not team fit, your life can become a living hell.

    Advice to Management

    Because it is so difficult for engineers to advance and get more pay, management is he only way for some to advance their careers. Not everyone should be a manager and not every team needs 10 layers in their chain of command.
