  7. "Great culture, but I was a co-op, so my tasks were monotonous."

    Former Employee - Research Team, Co-op in Burnaby, BC

    I worked at Automotive Fuel Cell Cooperation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Great people to have as co-workers. -Great facilities. -Interesting experience to be gained if you want to be in the Fuel Cell industry.

    Cons

    -monotonous tasks, such as assembling test units, leak checking, editing test plans, data crunching, etc. Tasks that seem interesting at first, but get very repetitive after 8 months. -less opportunity for interesting, and challenging projects. ( although there is some opportunity to pursue your own interesting projects, most of your time must be devoted to completing the monotonous tasks first).

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Automotive Fuel Cell Cooperation full-time

    Pros

    - Great HR team gluing the company together - Smart engineering team - Dedicated and determined to do the best with what they were given - The only thing preventing commercialization is the will of the OEM's to do it

    Cons

    - OEM politics poison the work place - Lack of stack funding is slowing down commercialization - Outgoing CEO didn't manage the company - Daimler Germany management team incapable of working collaboratively with Vancouver team (lack of respect and "we know best" attitude) - Daimler design decisions from 1990's forced upon stack team don't make sense but there was too much ego invested by Daimler high-ups to be able to change - R&D portfolio was a wasted effort
