    I worked at A123 Systems

    Pros

    Fast paced. Good product potential.

    Cons

    Haven't been able to turn a good product into a consistent, reliable, quality manufactured product. Pressed too hard to get product out the door, with little care for consistent procedures or quality. Too many changes on the fly. Employees always in fire-fighting mode. With time, they'll figure it out, but will they last that long?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of focusing on short-term, wall-street targets (which isn't working) and big incentives for only the senior management, how about a balance towards good manufacturing of products? Remember Ford: "Quality is Job #1"?

    No opinion of CEO

    Doesn't Recommend
