    Excellent Product, but unknown future

    Electrical Engineer (Current Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    Prosgreat people, lenient nature, huge potential,

    Cons"start-up" type operations, lack of organization

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould 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.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
