    I worked at American Superconductor full-time (more than a year)


    The technology was very interesting, the environment was conducive to learning, and the staff continues to be top notch.


    The only downside to working at American Superconductor was the stability of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and retain more of the dedicated current employees, and bring back those who loved working there.
