    I have been working at TASER as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Taser itself it an awesome place to work. Culture, and saving lives.

    Cons

    over 6 months of 70+ hours with no OT or insurance. Constantly having to prove yourself over and over after they find out something that might contradict they will continue to ask. If its not mgmt idea it wont get approved,.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your Sr. Talented Certified employees.There is a reason for such high turn over in the IT dept wont get the talent required to fill positions. Be more professional treat your employees that way you want to be treated. And most of all if you have a problem with someone tell them in writing not verbal.

    Pros

    Talented mid level personnel. If you attend Harvard, you're a shoe-in. Casual and sometimes party atmosphere (Con -is also a major distraction). Amazing technology.

    Cons

    Management structure is convoluted. More VPs than I can count. Controversial technology. Loyalty and hard work are not well compensated. Not much room for advancement or work life balance. Rules don't seem to apply evenly. Many unhappy coworkers. Seems to be very high turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees the way you expect them to invest in you. Nip gossip in the bud by providing clear management and direction. Try accountability.

    Pros

    Hans Marrero is a great person if you get to meet him

    Cons

    All of the smart employees don't stay around very long. No loyalty between employees. No loyalty between employees and managers.. Mass lay-offs, weekly firings. Not to mention working with a product that by nature has many safety concerns.. that you will have to spin positive.. and it will leave you with many sleepless nights wondering..

    I have been working at TASER

    Pros

    Very unique, leading edge products makes for an intriguing environment to work in. The office building is very high-tech and glamorous.

    Cons

    Despite leadership's intent to 'develop' within, the company has no career path program, and continues to onboard outside of the company.
