    As a startup, it is fast paced and understaffed. The workforce is diverse. So there are some cultural conflicts

    Pros

    It is the biggest and most leading edge project in the country if not the world

    Cons

    Each person brings their previous culture and knowlege to the party. As a result it is hard to get that many differences rolled in to single great plan or vision.

    Advice to Management

    Start ups are stressful for everyone. Take time to recognize and lift up individuals. Otherwise, many will be looking for the next position elswhere.

    Pros

    Had potential but faded in the last 6 months... Some of the top employees in the world work here and with the right tools could make this a very successful company.

    Cons

    They forgot why they hired the experienced/ best people in the industry and moved them to NY. Initially, the employees had lots of input and things were going well. In the last 6 months, attitudes have changed and employees are not utilized to there full potential. Morale is at an all time low. The new moto is "don't think or give your input, just do what your told" so now things are falling apart.

    Advice to Management

    When an upper management tells the employees to "suck it up" (after working so hard and not given any raises), it's not good for morale. You should value your employees and make them feel appreciated. You have a lot of awesome employees who have given up on trying to make it a "world class fab" because they keep running into brick walls called management.
