ProsVery challanging work environment. Fantastic engineers to work with. I've personally learnt a lot for the talented group. Good work life balance.

ConsNot great senior leadership when I was working. The company tried to copy the innovations/ business models from the market leaders. I wish the senior leadership focused more on innovation.
