No. I worked in R&D (mostly Aerospace) and I'm now trying to reenter the job
market. Almost always, I found that those of us in Engineering were trying
to comply with requirements that Marketing had given away to the customer
and we couldn't complete the task within their time frame or budget.
Marketing will do anything (usually) to make the sale and then the Engineers
try to get it done on time and within the budget. Remember the comparison
between Engineers and Mushrooms......
