community experience

The community experience is an important part of this. Next-generation engineers aren't getting their information and feedback in the old tried-and-true ways. Electronics distributors (think of Element 14) are adopting the community approach, too. The iTunes/social media approach will be well received.

It's the system, stupid

This reminds me of the old ad slogan Nikon used with its 35-mm film cameras -- "It's not a camera, it's a system."  Tools that perform a design function, no matter how adept they are at that (or how many features one rarely uses are crammed in), are useless if they're not part of a complete, product lifecycle management ecosystem. Tracking engineering changes is just as important -- more -- than pulling all nighters to get the prototype out. A robust content management solution -- exciting though that might not be -- is a big part of this.

Here are some of the top-paying jobs available to engineers as they grow in their careers.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
