Pros

Good mission statement, the company really has a strong place in this world. The people who work there are very amicable, and stick together as a family. The work environment is relatively casual. You are on the cutting edge of emerging technology

Cons

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.

    Pros

    It's not just a job. There's a real opportunity to do some real societal good. A lot of people here truly believe this and it shows.
    Work-life balance is good. Leadership clearly adheres to the creed that we should have lives outside work.
    Growth is there. The new body camera business is the right product at the right time.
    Lots of opportunities for personal career growth. Company is relatively small, but expanding rapidly with a lot of work to be done.

    Cons

    Growing pains come as company expands. Trying to create a software-driven group is fostering some tension with the traditional manufacturing business. A lot of business processes (e.g. HR, IT, benefits, etc) are still rough around the edges and need to be better for next level growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the little things. You can't grow if your HR, IT, etc are not world class.

    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.....
