ProsA123 offers a tremendous opportunity to learn and grow as a professional. Just get ready to work hard for your success. The company has a strong core of smart and hardworking people. The technology is impressive.

ConsSometimes limited information sharing from top management. Information goes up, but not much comes back down. Long hours. Not much priority given to work life balance.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company needs to do a better job vetting markets and put more energy and resources behind manufacturing process development.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
