Very poorly managed company with lots of hidden agenda at the top and very poor leadership (none).

Pros

Independent of what you do and how bad you contribute, as long as you know the right person at the top you are fine. You dance to the music from the top you are safe.

Cons

There is NO leadership There is NO vision The so called leadership does not have a clue for the contributions that makes the goals met. Very sad place

Advice to Management

Walk the talk You need to first identify who are the true leaders. You have not demonstrated to the working employees that you know this. Do not rely on those incompetant (in your terms) leadership. At the end of the day you need to be competent enough to pick the right leaders not those who tell you what you want to hear to safeguard their jobs and their agendas.

    Pros

    It is a highly technical company that has survived for a long time by diversifying into the wind energy business which is supposed to support the superconductor business.

    Cons

    The superconductor business has been waiting for decades to take off - always technology of the future. Stock price plunged in 2011 and has not recovered since.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify customer base
