Current Employee - Materials in Livonia, MI

I have been working at A123 Systems full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Although working through some quality issues, I believe the technology is sound and there is allot of interest in the product.

Cons

No leadership - No Plan - No Direction - No Accountability - No Objectives - No Performance Metrics, just come in and start from scratch every single day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the experts you've paid so well to employ! Many people know what it takes to turn that company around but no one listens and you get the impression that no one really cares.

    Pros

    They pay well. Benefits are good. They are involved in the community and charitiies. There are people there that are trying to change the mindset and mood. They will be owned by someone else soon and hopefully this means new management.

    Cons

    Poor upper management. Poor planning. Rushed to production without dotting all the "i's" and crossing all the "t's". Departments don't work together to solve problems. Management is resistant to change or new ideas.

    I have been working at A123 Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Surrounded by a lot of smart and open minded people, you can learn everything you want. The technology is excellent. Good pay and health insurance.

    Cons

    Poorly managed. The top management team is interested in Wall street and their golden parachute only. Production lines are not well managed and quality is overlooked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a business but not a gambling.
