Long time employee, company is fighting for its life

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Madison, WI

I have been working at American Superconductor full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood people, casual work environment. Benefits are OK. They do pay people pretty well. But in order to get people to stay through the kind of collapse we have here now, they must pay well.

ConsSo many layoffs because of the Sinoval debacle that moral is in the toilet. It is completely unknown even to us on the inside whether the company will make it.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop flying every executive all around the world in non-stop fashion instead of laying off more people next time

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Poorly run company with out of touch management.

Director (Former Employee)
Devens, MA

I worked at American Superconductor full-time for more than 5 years

ProsPay was competitive with the market but don't expect advancement.

ConsDon't expect to make a difference or to have a management team that cares about the shareholders, customers or employees. One bad decision after another and poor product quality is the death toll for them.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe Board needs to wake up and do what's right for the shareholders by replacing the entire management team. Also, continually suing their customers or being sued is a bad strategy.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Very poorly managed company with lots of hidden agenda at the top and very poor leadership (none).

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at American Superconductor

ProsIndependent of what you do and how bad you contribute, as long as you know the right person at the top you are fine. You dance to the music from the top you are safe.

ConsThere is NO leadership
There is NO vision
The so called leadership does not have a clue for the contributions that makes the goals met.
Very sad place

Advice to Senior ManagementWalk the talk
You need to first identify who are the true leaders. You have not demonstrated to the working employees that you know this.
Do not rely on those incompetant (in your terms) leadership.
At the end of the day you need to be competent enough to pick the right leaders not those who tell you what you want to hear to safeguard their jobs and their agendas.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
