      Cool stuff, but dysfunctional and poorly managed

      Pros

      It's really cool learning about the industry and having a direct impact. It's a little bit of the wild west mentality, which is a pro and con.

      Cons

      Company has solar system size dreams and ambitions. But the company's management is all over the place and doesn't seem to have a clear vision of how to get to where they want to be, or maybe even where they want to be. Good ole boys club. Nepotism leads to poor management, when you hire your friends to run the show, and they aren't good at it. Nobody in senior management knows anything about software, and they are trying to be a software company.

      Pros

      If you show some you want to learn they will make it happen, I know it says I was just a floorhand but I did many different things for this company and I was getting bumped up to derricks as corona virus hit.

      Cons

      Nothing to make people want to be better at there job, some may have the work ethics but others don’t leaving you with more work.
