Poor Project Management for Embedded and Network Projects

For embedded and network professional there would be hectic resource allocation process some time pushy too from IT Support department . Especially for embedded engineer dependencies are too much , same with network project sometime, at that time hectic and complex and too much time consuming approval process of each resource create a crunch of resources due to same end result will be adversely affected.Afterwards none will take responsibility at the final end end engineer will suffer.

Pros

Good for non-embedded and non-network projects.

Cons

Bad operational management embedded and network project resource allocation process.

Overall not a good experience

Some projects have a high pressure environment here. Management will follow only the tunes of the client. At some point, you will feel its not worthy to be here without any support and the even the pay is not at par with the pressure of work. Extreme learning/ because of client-management pressure can spoil work environment.

Pros

Yes its a secure JOB. If you are average skilled, you job control is mostly in your hands here.

Cons

Lot of projects, management is not worthy for the efforts to be put by you.

It is okay as far as incentive like insurance but salary package isn't good.

No good for long time employment. Can be with organisation for at least 3 years not more than that. Not much to learn as a part of work but apart from work they provide extra materials for enhancing my skills.

Pros

Learning packages

Cons

Low appraisal, Low Pay

Perfect work life balance

You can work relax. less work pressure. Good place to use your innovative ideas. They should concentrate more on salary & benifits to make it best place for employees.

Depends on salary

If the salary you received is low then you are at safe place and you shouldn't face any difficult their. If you are getting more salary, then probably won't receive any hike. The appraisal cycle always normalization.
