I have been working at TASER full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Positive mission to change the world for the better, passionate people, Scottsdale is beautiful, great access to executive team, fast-moving company, open culture, hackathons, rotational development program, First Friday happy hours, holiday parties.

The company has dramatically changed for the better over the past two years. It's ready to make a massive impact and change the world again. I'm looking forward to where the company goes next.

Cons

Work-life balance can be difficult in some roles; sea of honeycombed cubicles; extremely slow hiring process

Advice to Management

Keep working to bring the hungry, driven start-up culture back to TASER. More focus on hiring.

    I have been working at TASER as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Taser itself it an awesome place to work. Culture, and saving lives.

    Cons

    over 6 months of 70+ hours with no OT or insurance. Constantly having to prove yourself over and over after they find out something that might contradict they will continue to ask. If its not mgmt idea it wont get approved,.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your Sr. Talented Certified employees.There is a reason for such high turn over in the IT dept wont get the talent required to fill positions. Be more professional treat your employees that way you want to be treated. And most of all if you have a problem with someone tell them in writing not verbal.
