Compensation is way below market rate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To pay better, you can afford it. And listen to your employees when they want to move.

    I worked at TASER full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Being given opportunities to grow my career buy their former CFO/COO. Being trusted in, believed in feeling valued by that person. Unfortunately those opportunities are no longer given if you aren't a Grad student or and overpaid executive. Its sad but true. I also enjoyed working with the employees that helped build this co to what it was. Some are still there, but few. The products intent, is also an important reason to feel good about being a part of Taser.

    Cons

    CFO So many bad business decisions. And no one has the nerve to tell/challenge him. Too busy reliving his youth and trying to be like every other Big deal tech company vs focusing on why he started Taser to begin with. When the stocks up, its good. But when its not, reality is still there. That same ol toxic environment. Just my honest opinion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company will succeed, because the product is a good one. Quality is an issue, but with the right people I'm sure it could improve. Invest in your employees that have committed to make Taser what it was and can be. Value your employees, ALL of them. Not just the VP's or College kids. Make them want to go to work in the am. Not feel sick to. Grow a pair, be honest about whats not working.....

    Pros

    If you can get past the new interview scheme which includes Mensa questions (likely the senior team wants an answer to), you quickly can rise to your level of incompetence. There you can bask in praising Rick and being his next pull toy.

    Cons

    Simple. Expect low pay. Expect to report up to an executive you're smarter than. Do not expect your opinions to be valued. If you voice your opinion on paper, months later you will get your own walking papers unless you're a buddy of the senior team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit.
