    the guy at the top of manufacturing management should stay out of the business of the day to day and focus on whatever he does in his office.

    Pros

    Exciting product and mission, for the most part great collaborative and dedicated team to make a challenging program a reality. Fast paced company, everyone made a significant contribution.

    Cons

    Financing was a struggle. Underfunding made it hard to achieve not always realistic deadlines and stretched resources thin to the brink.
    Company shutdown.

    Advice to Management

    Next time, walk the talk and be more realistic about what can be done.

    Pros

    Good technology and good benefit

    Discrimination and bully happened in the workplace. The management was so bad, that's why even the technology was very good but the company had to shut down.
