    A fundamentally flawed start-up that sailed far beyond its innocent days, operating similar to a $500B corporation

    Former Employee - Engineer in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    I worked at Westport Innovations full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Attractive location. Fantastic restaurants and small park within walking distance
    - Flexible schedule
    - Above average vacation time
    - Good health and dental benefits
    - Lots of training provided for professional development

    Cons

    - Unclear mission statement
    - Old-timers have absolutely no accountability for any past missteps/failures
    - Some under qualified and inexperienced engineering managers that lack the basic credentials with long history of misguided projects and failures
    - Excessive turnover rate in upper management
    - Both top and middle management spend majority time driving and fighting politics as oppose to understanding and solving the actual problem
    - Low employee morale, engineering staff have little to no drive for "innovation" or delivering a stellar product

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Transition away from the top heavy organization structure asap
    - More open to employees for both good and bad news
    - All problems (technical and political) are always traced back to the same handful of old-timers. Actions should be taken.
    - HR should be more aware of the mid level management politics and more detailed with the hiring/dismissal process (Politics should not be the driving factor for hiring/dismissal of an employee)

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
