    Cons

    -No training, nor mentorship offered

    -Toxic office atmosphere
    -Coworkers hoard business knowledge and only give it out in bits and pieces

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is growing rapidly, but the new hires are not being utilized at all. Make sure department managers and supervisors get employees up to speed on Westport tech and processes, rather then leave employees to chicken scratch for needed information to do his/her job.

    Pros

    fast growing company in natural gas with world class technology portfolio in the entire walk of applications from cars to locomotives.

    Cons

    not integrated as a company, hence majority of employees do not feel a part of the core organization and do not feel proud of working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep employees together in order to keep pace with growing environment. Not having this will lead to a big gap between strategy and actions.
