I have been working at American Superconductor full-time (More than 8 years)
Management very collaborative and open to employees input on how to make to make company better, compensation and benefits packages are very good, business relaxed dress code, and the people are genuinely great to work with.
Work/Life balance - Need to get with the times and implement a more acceptable "flexible" work hours environment - possibly 4 day work week or work from home rotation; better workspace for managers - this would allow for more productivity and protect areas of confidentiality - little to no privacy in current set-up on production and office spaces.
I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at American Superconductor (Boston, MA).
Met the hiring manager at a conference, where I was giving a talk. After the talk he approached me asked whether I was seeking an employment in Industry. I said yes, and the process started. I sent him my resume and he informed me of his interest. After a week or so, I was informed that I will be called for an onsite interview. I was there within a month, gave a talk and met with key team members who talked about the challenges and rewards for joining. They asked me some generic questions and enjoyed that conversation. I answered the questions with optimism and confidence. I had the offer within a month.
