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

Pros

Can be considered a good source of a studying lab rather than a company.

Cons

the owners are only interested in selling an unproven idea product to large potential buyers and make money that way. No sense of purpose or direction. President of the company is the least professional person I have ever worked for. The Company (if we dare call this a company) is surviving solely on state and federal grants and nothing else. They abuse the grant system by supposedly creating "innovative" products in the fuel cell market but in reality it's a wasteland of grandiose ideas deemed for failure without any true purpose. Pay is horrible, benefits are almost nonexistent, local and offices are in a BARN and very poor management.

Advice to Management

Catacel will never succeed as long as its key owners don't focus on what needs to done to take a product from being a pet project to a viable commercial project.

    I worked at Catacel as a contractor

    Pros

    This is a small company where it is easy to get to know everyone. People are friendly and cared for by management. They have a unique, state of the art technology unlike any other.

    Cons

    Growth was slow, but the company had great promise.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Very intelligent people working here with great work ethic. Leadership strives to create and provide programs and opportunities to employees in regard to training, skill-building, recognition, work-life balance, etc.; much more so than you would expect from a small company, much less a larger company. The culture is laid back, but still very professional and forward thinking. Employees are friendly and will always smile and say hello.

    Cons

    I haven't come across any.
