Pros

Independent of what you do and how bad you contribute, as long as you know the right person at the top you are fine. You dance to the music from the top you are safe.

Cons

There is NO leadership
There is NO vision
The so called leadership does not have a clue for the contributions that makes the goals met.
Very sad place

Advice to Management

Walk the talk
You need to first identify who are the true leaders. You have not demonstrated to the working employees that you know this.
Do not rely on those incompetant (in your terms) leadership.
At the end of the day you need to be competent enough to pick the right leaders not those who tell you what you want to hear to safeguard their jobs and their agendas.

    I have been working at American Superconductor full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
