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

I have been working at American Superconductor

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I worked at American Superconductor full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with and the product we made were great and of the highest quality. This was a great company to work for with a ton of potential.

    Cons

    The executive level management over extended themselves and put all of their eggs in one basket. Now the basket is gone.

    Pros

    Good people, casual work environment, pay is ok.

    Cons

    You need to be in with the right people in upper management to move up. Poor management with no vision. Upper management blames all their problems on Sinoval.
