    I have been working at A123 Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, working with very smart people

    Cons

    I mean the technology is totally flawed because the process of making high performance LiFePO4 is very expensive and prone to quality issues. Bad communication and ultra stupid expectation of automotive market, and very poor quality control, which resulted in recalls and recalls. Worthless stock options (I chose not to take this because I know the problem of this company so well).

    Advice to Management

    You people are crooks because you had no confidence in this company and sold your shares from the beginning and gave yourself golden parachutte before selling to the Chinese company. CEO, CFO, COO all deserve to be in jail now!

    I worked at A123 Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and nice pay if you are not a production worker.

    Cons

    Complete lack of common sense, organization and accountability by any department.. The quality of their product and the manufacturing equipment is terrible at best.. I was so happy to have found another company to work for that is the complete opposite of A123.

    Advice to Management

    You have proven time and time again that you do not have the right people in the positions that you needed to become a success. Mismanagement has run this company into the ground. Nice golden parachute the executives have given themselves just before announcing a complete recall of their garbage product. You people keep smiling all the way to the bank..
