Pros

New technology, science, new markets;
sometimes acts like small company
diversity; culture is open and loose

has transitioned beyond the "not invented here" syndrome

unfocused, trying to put too many "lines in the water".
fiscal management has been poor.
Accountabilityextremely poor
too many locations to support for such a small company with small revenue stream.
Talented executives have mostly departed.
Has had difficulty understanding what potential customers want and need.
Was too focused on the science and a "build it and they will come" mentality
cultural and management differences in different locations is a divide.

Advice to Management

Focus; follow the dollars; make business leaders accountable for business units.
Situational awareness is key
Hire some executive talent from the markets you are trying to serve. Don't focus on other fuel cell companies.
