    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at FloDesign Wind Turbine full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Innovative, driven to success, tireless energy and a pursuit of excellence; strong foundation fundamentals in all disciplines enabling the ability to quickly react to challenges in design and development; beyond start-up and well into pre-revenue maturity state; strong mix of youth and maturity, a virtual "Who's Who" of Ivy League education, F100 proven global discipline industry experts and wind energy experts

    Cons

    Not for the feint of heart.....the pace is enormously challenging; but then again any new-start company at this stage would be envious of accomplishments and positioning for success

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic in design to production transition path......transparency in what it takes resource wise to accomplish technical goals and objectives

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at FloDesign Wind Turbine full-time

    Pros

    Many employees appear very enthusiastic about their job, reasonable salary, possibility of stock options for some employees, management has succeeded in funding for the company.

    Cons

    Product is very complex and will not be price competitive with traditional turbines, lack of the right focal points in the product development, lack of product core knowledge throughout the organisation. The company experience a very high staff turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to focus on the right points in product development, CoE, ROI, customer acceptance.
