    I worked at Designline International full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interesting, challenging job. Good pay. Vacation days about average. Stock option plan was being developed.

    Cons

    The transit bus industry has some standard procedures which are different from machinery building. Trying to introduce different ideas was challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cash flow problems led to bankruptcy in July 2013

    Pros

    great people, lenient nature, huge potential,

    Cons

    "start-up" type operations, lack of organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should have had better people searching for future investors, if Designline was marketed correctly - a small company with an excellent product - should have interested several big automotive groups.
