    Pros

    Good benefits. No haggle about time off

    Cons

    Management. The buddy system. No degree no promotion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more from production floor. HR needs to be looked at throughly. Need to value experience rather than giving jobs to people because of there educational background.

    Pros

    A123 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.

    Cons

    Sometimes 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 ManagementAdvice

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