Wonderful place and people. Grew too fast.
Test Engineer (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAMarch 29, 2017
The time I have spent at Aquion has been a fantastic but stressful experience. I would gladly spend longer here, if we find a buyer and escape from our chapter 11 bankruptcy.
Pros
Flexible hours, Great environment, Sarcastic people
Cons
Benefits, high-risk industry, Bankrupt.

Senior Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Mount Pleasant, PAMarch 28, 2017
Aquion Energy was a fun place to work until they went bankrupt in March 2017. Then they laid off most of the company. They are hoping to emerge from bankruptcy and get back to making energy storage batteries again.
