    I worked at Azure Dynamics full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Azure Dynamics full-time

    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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    The technology is very cool, the people are generally great, the benefits are really good, and the products really do benefit the environment.

    Cons

    Corporate financial management is questionable (see recent filing for bankruptcy protection), communication from upper management was not too good, and sales were depressed.

    Pros

    Azure dynamics has an amazing team, the people there are very cool and enjoy working for the company. My experience there working on electric and hybrid vehicles will be very useful elsewhere. Lots of talented people there.

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours, executives take massive bonuses which is crippling the company. Stock price is at an all time low, job security is not good, just went through lay offs and morale is low.
