    Pros

    This team is ready to welcome inbound employees with open arms and lots of support.
    The introduction and on-boarding has been great and I am thrilled with the reception they have given me!
    Coming from a very large organization, I was a little bit used to feeling invisible sometimes, but this is not that kind of shop. I feel confident I will be able to contribute and work closely with other teams to help deliver - and leverage all the internal knowledge I can to make me successful.
    Looking forward to a bright future here!

    Cons

    none that I can see yet

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

    Pros

    TASER has a "one of kind" culture that believes in protecting life with our CEWs and protecting the truth with our Video platforms. It is a free spirited working environment where you can listen to music all day while working with awesome individuals on out of this world technology. The people are not micro-managed and are able to get the job done in innovative ways.

    Cons

    Can't really say I have any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep supporting the people and drive towards the next level of awesomeness.

    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.

    Pros

    The company truly wants to improve the world, and actually does. They're customers love them and they are a truly world famous brand. The company itself is a fun place to work, and has an amazing HQ. The senior management thinks 10 years ahead and actually makes moves to get the company there, investing in new business models and products that will allow for continued growth in a sector they dominate. The company has also changed dramatically over the past few years, all for the better. They have gotten rid of toxic employees and ineffective managers and the company culture is far better for it. They recognize talent in their employees and there is ample space to be a contributor and take on responsibility.

    Cons

    Compensation could be better, and there are a few managers left that need to either step up their game or be replaced. Also the new business is still trying to find its stride.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with your growth strategy and continue investing in it. Don't get lazy on making sure that everyone on the team is a Grade-A contributor even though we're growing and need to fill roles quickly.
