Pros

Santa Barbara is a great place to live.

Cons

Management is clueless and detached. Reorganizations seem to occur regularly at six month intervals, and these lead to three problems:

1. Projects get lost in the shuffle. As an engineer, you have no confidence that what you work on will still be considered a priority in six month's time.

2. Every reorg seems to introduce yet another layer of management. Even as a senior
engineer, I'm still five layers from the top. More and more of my time is spent generating
reports so that all of my bosses will look productive.

3. Management (especially the newest members) don't seem to know much about the technology they are supposed to be driving. Admittedly, it's arcane stuff, but there's no excuse.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention and try to figure out why people are leaving the company.

    Pros

    Decent salary, vacation and benefits. Working with people creating amazing technology.

    Cons

    Upper management seems overly concerned with the shareholders and market perceptions. A truly successful company would make them happier. Need the courage and finding to complete new projects in a timely manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Finish what you start. You have great people willing for you who love what they do and would give you amazing products if allowed.

    Pros

    Good people in general. Most people work for technology related engineering without too much paper work.

    Cons

    I agree with profound lack of vision and leadership at the engineering group.
    Maybe CEO doesn't think it is important to get engineer's trust. because frequent laid off.
