    Pros

    Azure Dynamics is no longer in business due to bankruptcy, however the work environment was great up until every one lost their jobs.

    Cons

    The biggest con of working for Azure Dynamics is that no one can work there due to the fact that they are no longer in business.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to better manage the company's assets so as not to go into bankruptcy and cause everyone to lose their awesome jobs.

  2. The best place I ever worked. Great people, great culture, great product!

    Pros

    Management and staff alike really cared about each other, the product and the environment. A driven, intelligent group of people who really believed in being part of the solution.

    Cons

    The company went out of business due to lack of funding. It was a company before its time.

    Pros

    You name it. It was an awesome place to work. Loved the leadership team all the way down to low man on the totem pole. HR was amazing!! The people here and the work was fun. Don't get me wrong, there were days you wanted to strangle people, but overall, this was by far the best company i had worked for in a long time. I just wish they were still around. I loved everything about it.

    Cons

    Electric vehicles....company went under. Not enough funding to continue :-(

    Advice to Management

    You all did your best. I'd come work for you guys anytime!!

    Pros

    People are awesome! Unbelievable engineering! The concept is great. Would love to see a big company put this place on the map.

    Cons

    Executive management spend too much money. When you hire all your friends, you get a good ol,boys club in Detroit and waste other people's money!

    Advice to Management

    Stop being greedy. Who needs an 800,000$ bonus?

    Pros

    Small company with lots of cross-functional roles.

    Cons

    Products in the development phase - company at risk of running out of cash every 6-12 months.
    Very little opportunity for advancement from within.

    Pros

    Nice work enviorment, challenging projects and many diverse people to bounce ideas with.

    Cons

    There should have been more personnel assigned to support older revisions of systems before rolling out newer controls systems. Too many failures in the field coupled with the economic downslide and AZD's decision to suspend warranties has sunk this company.

    Pros

    This company was full of great people to work with and for. The projects were quite challenging but also very rewarding to complete.

    Cons

    The company folded due to funding issues. I'm not sure exactly if there was any one specific issue, maybe warranty costs? Shipping one or two vehicles all over the continent?

    Advice to Management

    Do at most a few things really well, then look to diversify! The product was good and I still see them in operation from time to time, but too many warranty issues?

    Pros

    Management that cares, and goes the extra mile to build a 'community' at work.
    No glass ceiling between staff and upper management - even the CEO was very approachable and always happy to help. Even joining in on impromptu social activities.

    Cons

    Financial difficulties in a tough market and climate.

    Advice to Management

    Secure BIG government funding, like some of the other Electric tech companies did!
