    A hole in the wall with absolutely no idea how to run a business.

    I worked at Catacel full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Can be considered a good source of a studying lab rather than a company.

    Cons

    the owners are only interested in selling an unproven idea product to large potential buyers and make money that way. No sense of purpose or direction. President of the company is the least professional person I have ever worked for. The Company (if we dare call this a company) is surviving solely on state and federal grants and nothing else. They abuse the grant system by supposedly creating "innovative" products in the fuel cell market but in reality it's a wasteland of grandiose ideas deemed for failure without any true purpose. Pay is horrible, benefits are almost nonexistent, local and offices are in a BARN and very poor management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Catacel will never succeed as long as its key owners don't focus on what needs to done to take a product from being a pet project to a viable commercial project.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Catacel in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was asked to come in to interview at the site. The drive up was daunting as the company is located in the middle of farmland which is interesting for a cutting edge company dealing with fuel cells and hydrogen fuel processing. I met with four people and each had their own approach to the process. It was very laid back and I had the sense that they were looking for personality fit as well as professional capabilities. The facility could use some TLC but otherwise it is a great escape from more hectic life. I found the culture to be laid back and still professional.
