    Pros

    (1) Competitive environment where performance is rewarded. Small enough company to differentiate the go-getters from the slackers.

    (2) The tools are complex products and the company prides itself on reliability. Hytorc is an innovator, not a follower, for the torque tool market. This fosters an environment rich in technical challenges for careers growth.

    (3) Engineering managers are approachable humans; suggestions are not only welcomed, but encouraged. When good suggestions are made, actions are taken.

    Cons

    (1) Young electrical hardware engineering team without an experienced mentor. The team is knowledgeable enough to be dangerous, however there is no seasoned veteran to resolve technical conflicts on the electrical hardware front.
    There are veterans working the mechanical, firmware/software, and applications aspects; there is no strong electrical hardware leadership.

    (2) Majority of product lines are technically driven, however other product
     lines have a marketing is king philosophy for the worse.

    (3) Work load can be better managed between engineers: some are over worked and others are under worked. Too small of a company for the work load not to be better managed.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the fat and hire an experienced electrical hardware engineer to lead and mentor the young engineers. Ideally this individual should have prior experience managing projects and resolving technical problems. The individual should:

    (1) Have a strong sense of professionalism.
    (2) Have SUCCESSFULLY designed power electronics for BLDC motor drives.
    (3) Genuinely enjoy electronics and have a willingness to mentor junior engineers.
