    Current Employee - Battery Engineer in Ann Arbor, MI

    I have been working at A123 Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Get paid for doing nothing, get paid while polishing your resume using company resources. Good salary and latest technology in lithium battery

    Cons

    People are leaving in droves, even some managers openly told their subordinates they are working on their resumes and networking with outside. No collaboration with GM on chevy spark since the April accident! Soon will not be able to pay salary and keep lights on! There are rumors everywhere and people can't focus on their work on a daily basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focusing on EV while the product quality, price can't even remotely viable is a recipe for failure, even you get free money! Get out of the much hyped auto business and focus on other areas where price is not a factor!

    Pros

    Exciting new field that can't attract investors

    Cons

    The company is running out of money, they no longer provide bathroom tissue in the toilet in order to save money!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell to Ford Motor Company if you can convince Ford
