    Pros

    Initially an exciting concept. The A5 was an interesting design 15 years ago. Slick marketing, even if it was misleading. Chinese money keeps coming.

    Cons

    Icon does not have ability to produce at scale. It costs 2x more to build these than what a customer will pay.

    Pros

    Great product that is fun to fly in and ok benefits

    Cons

    Chinese run company always struggling with finances. The staff is very under resourced most employees are doing the job of several people, as such things slip through the cracks. Current investors don’t seem to want to make it successful and ran off most the previous management that knew what they were doing. Little to no ability to retain current talent who are jumping off the sinking ship in large quantities.

    Horribly mismanaged from the CEO down through the top tier management. Bills were never paid. Overspend on parties and cut corners on safety and products. Would not suggest working there to anyone .

    Small, hands-on team, with everyone giving their best and without unnecessary management levels. Most people wear multiple hats which provides a great exposure to lots of processes and cross-functional teams.

    Often tight timelines for deliverables and at times ambitious production plans.
