    I worked at Infinia for less than a year

    Pros

    Challenging design requirements. Adequate hardware set-ups. Interesting Inventor software review approach.

    Cons

    NO apparent managerial production experience present (R&D still running the operations. causing delays in delivery of promised quotas). The VP of Engrg. & chief machinist didn't know anything about ASME Y14.5M GD&T, based on their review of my details and drawings. Cronyism, favoritism and rejection of any new employees' input/ideas/solutions outright, created a hostile work environment as well. It's easy to understand their need to declare bankruptcy.

    Advice to Management

    You have a great product...sell your current configuration as your "Chevrolet" model with a full replacement warranty. If a unit fails, replace it! THEN finish your "New & Improved" "Rolls-Royce" perfected model sometime later once it is achieved. You meet your promised quota deadlines, while insuring a satisfied customer base...which sells more units in the future.
