Current Employee - Engineer in Latham, NY

Pros

New technology, science, new markets;
sometimes acts like small company
diversity; culture is open and loose
opportunities to influence a start-up into commercialization
has transitioned beyond the "not invented here" syndrome

Cons

Many times acts like large Fortune 500 company;
unfocused, trying to put too many "lines in the water".
fiscal management has been poor.
Accountabilityextremely poor
too many locations to support for such a small company with small revenue stream.
Talented executives have mostly departed.
Has had difficulty understanding what potential customers want and need.
Was too focused on the science and a "build it and they will come" mentality
cultural and management differences in different locations is a divide.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus; follow the dollars; make business leaders accountable for business units.
Situational awareness is key
Hire some executive talent from the markets you are trying to serve. Don't focus on other fuel cell companies.
