Re: Power module
@dassa.an: I agree with you. Multi tasking, although very tough in a technical company, has its own set of rewards like better raises, more visibility in your department. You can also get visibility if you accept tough projects that involve a lot of brain work.

Re: Free thinking
@victor: some people aren't so lucky. They have the same old tedious job for a score of years and they get tired and start questioning about "free innovative thinking". It also depends on how much you know about different kind of things and how much you want to burn the bridges you built and start a complete makeover on how you see the world and how you innovate.

"A kind of a communication between developing and marketing departments is a must in companies for them to succeed."

@SunitaT0: I think this makes the role of the top management more cruicial in how they create a culture that encourages collaboration and coordination amongst cross-functional team. This can really make a huge difference in the output.

Re: Free thinking
"This position requires precisely someone who is expected to be creative, innovative, proactive, independent, rational and open minded, amongst many other things."

@Victor: What do you think is the greatest challenge for an engineer/designer in such a role that involves a great deal of creativity? From what I have experienced, a lack of structure and the ability to streamline creative projects can at times be difficult if there's absolutely no control.

Re: Free thinking
chirshadglog>> "It does require some set of skills isn't it ?"

Exactly! It's much like a one man band. On one side some products are instruments requiring accurate analog front-ends, digital signal processing chains and wired/wireless communication interfaces and on the other side some others are relatively simple (compared to the former ones) but must be designed for surviving direct lightning impacts.

In terms of technical skills it requires being an experienced analog and digital designer, an skilled firmware and linux/windows applications programmer and have a background on mechanical design (enclosures, molding, packaging, production automation) and systems integration.

Re: Free thinking
@tzubair >> "Were you allowed to "Free Think" in your organization and work on your own innovative ideas that you felt had the potential?"

During my early years as member of an information technology and biomedical engineering research team I felt free to innovate and had full support from my colleages in many areas. The same applies for the time I spent as a point of sale devices programmer for a software company.

Things were slightly different in a medium sized smartcards manufacturing company I worked for as part of the R&D department. In my last three years there I was in charge of developing several production automation machines with almost total freedom for all levels of decision making, reporting to general director. I also made a short trip as a consultancy firm co-founder/co-owner but it was too stressing, put too rigid limits to creativity and got too "dangerous" for my health.

At present I work as R&D Manager for a medium sized lightnings protection company. This position requires precisely someone who is expected to be creative, innovative, proactive, independent, rational and open minded, amongst many other things.

Re: Power module
@tzubair: Most of the time this happens, however some clever practices include engineers to swap their jobs with the business departments to see how much their design changes while discussing the market factors. Most engineers do not like to see the view but sometimes they understand their design flaw and don't repeat the same mistake again. Similarly the business department employees also come to know about the principles of working in the engineering department and how they handle efficient working. A kind of a communication between developing and marketing departments is a must in companies for them to succeed.
