    start-up excitment deflated by two-class structure destroys team spirit and capacity for innovation

    Senior Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) San Rafael, CA

    Proscompelling vision. Interesting niche. Apparent opportunity to contribute creatively. All these conditions are in place to sustain the opportunity for a great story. Unfortunately there are major problems with the way the company grew from a very small company.

    ConsClose personal relationship with management will make the greatest difference. Competence and effort will get you nowhere. This company grew from a small research team at the parent company managed by a person that was trained as a middle manager at a large corporation. The team under that person had at the core a number of people that had seniority but limited experience outside their narrow field of research. Lack of confidence and strategic vision from the middle manager and a reliance on a core team with limited experience locked out the opportunity to benefit from anyone who came in with informed and/or creative views outside a narrow dogmatism regulated by group think.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRattle the cage that is bound by cumplicity of middle manager with core research team (insiders) and create an environment open to ideas outside the inflexible dogmatism of a small inexperienced group of people that are trying to hold on to previleges of seniority unrelated to competence and knowledge. Recognition of competence and effort from "outsiders" will go a long way to improve the broken team environment and open up opportunity for the company to actually create the innovation that is at the core of its mission.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
