    I have been working at Westport Innovations full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Interesting technology
    -Co-workers are friendly for the most part
    -CEO is good at raising money

    Cons

    -Technology is too complicated, expensive, and is developed too quickly.
    -High turnover rate
    -No mentoring, and lack of support for new hires trying to learn Westport processes
    -Salary is below market, hours above market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down. The Wesport business model, while successful in attracting customers, is not feasible in the long term because it spreads the company too thin, trying to cater to too many people at once. This is difficult to do when you have an over-complicated over-priced technology. Don't make the mistake that so many failed tech companies in Vancouver have made.
