    Awesome feeling to get to work for a great company that has a purpose and a valuable mission.

    Pros

    it's a fantastic place to work
    awesome culture
    belief in a life-saving product
    innovative startup culture
    unlimited PTO

    Cons

    too much focus on flashy things rather than substance
    a small percentage of execs have a bad idea of work-life balance (they don't have families and they expect others to act the same)

    Advice to Management

    trust your employees more.

    Pros

    TASER is changing the technological landscape in public safety. What was once a company with a single flagship product is now a fast-growing, software-driven company with a platform of innovative technologies. There is no shortage of projects to work on, and the people you get to work on them with are top of the line.

    Cons

    The massive change in momentum has brought some turmoil, including the majority of the company having been around for <2 years. This feels more significant in a 20 year old company than it does in a startup, and the change of pace can be a bit much for some people.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the people, the product, and the mission.

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

    Pros

    + Working for a mission and company that allows you to make the world a better place is really energizing and impactful.

    + Great people. Seriously. Great people. There are so many awesome people here that it makes you feel fortunate to be a part of it.

    + Fantastic leadership team-approachable, open minded, committed, and empathetic

    + Some really fun and quirky benefits. $100 to use toward Health and Wellness related stuff? Sign me up! The flexibility of being able to expense a meal if I'm working long hours one day? Love it. Tuition reimbursement? Never to be scoffed at. TASER's benefits may need some work, but they're really moving in the right direction, and the team is making efforts to keep things going in that direction.

    + Opportunity. There aren't set career paths (right now), but there is ample opportunity to come in and make a name for yourself, and grow your career very quickly. Love it.

    Cons

    -Work Hard. But Play Hard. Yes, sometimes work life balance is hard here in a stage of hyper growth. But we play hard too. Lots of awesome activities like Smash Putt (mini golf), rafting trips, waffle trucks, executive dinners, and more.

    -Fast Paced. Ambiguous. Depending on the type of work environment you enjoy this could be your cup of tea, but fair warning we're really like a start up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep leading by example. Keep listening to your people. Keep demonstrating the service leadership and passion that has made TASER what it is today.

    Pros

    The hierarchy is very flat which encourages communication, cooperation, and rapid development of ideas. My coworkers are smart and passionate. We're all excited to work on a product that actually makes a difference.

    Taser is run by it's founder CEO whose goal is to build and grow the business: this means that the company is willing to take risks to build entirely new businesses. Taser's mission statement is: Protect life. Protect Truth. To date, Taser has been the trailblazer of two life-saving technologies: stun guns and body-worn cameras for police officers.

    Cons

    the Seattle office is mostly an open office plan

    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

    Pros

    Simply stated, this is the best company I've ever worked for, and here are some reasons why:

    -Massive growth potential both from a market perspective and personal career perspective
    -Transformative technology company going from a hardware company to a hardware + software company
    -Company that actually believes in what it's doing, and it's a good thing to do - Protect Life. Protect Truth.
    -Really fun people and culture

    Cons

    Too much hyper-growth and opportunity! But seriously, while not a a perfect company, I can't think of any structural cons.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the market opportunity and your people. Continue to keep the bar high for hiring.
