Building was designed to appear like Star Wars
Import/Export Compliance Manager (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZJanuary 24, 2017
The people and environment was a great place to work. Knowing that you are providing products to law enforcement and the ability to be tazed during training was also a great learning experience.

Taser
Inside Sales (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZJanuary 4, 2017
Company is going through a lot of changes, consistent internal communication is not strong. Great people doing the work, but middle management needs some improvement. CEO seems to have a clear direction for the company, but it is often over shadowed by the day to day grind and lack of clear direction.
Pros
Great benefits and fun activities
Cons
Environment is ever changing, no consistency

Change in Middle Management has took the company on a downward spiral. Employees that have been there 5 or more years are looking for other employment.

Good place to work to make money now.
RMA Technician (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZNovember 28, 2016
Due to it being contract in nature, advancement is almost nil. Pay is rather low for some. The day consists of testing many shoulder video units and assembling new units to be sent out.
Pros
Free beverages
Cons
Long days depending on what department you arein.

Bro culture, long hours and no work life balance, not career oriented
VP IT (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZDecember 6, 2015
Pay is relatively competetive except when you take into account the long days and nights required as an excempt employee, lack of benefits (no PTO or accumulated time off) you get far less compensation. Management is a perfect example of "Bro-Culture" and Stanford/Harvard and other Ivy League graduates are recruited for VP and Management position straight out of school with little to no other experience, while well experienced mangement flees the company and forced to resign. There is truly very little innovation and more IP lawsuits that prohibit competitors from offering better product and the legal department is one of the only team tht does not follow the skill less hiring which stems from nepotism and favoritism amongst alumni. Raises are unheard of unless you are included in the good ol' boy network (cronyism) in which case tens of thousands of shares are given out while continuing hard working and in most cases overworked underappreciated employees get a few hundred dollars in bonus checks or maybe if lucky some shares which usually amount to about 1% the bonus of the VP'S fresh out of college or long time employees who have never worked anywhere else in their entire lives and would be lucky to get a job outside of this company.
Pros
Great Christmas party, nice digs, well equipped with technology
Cons
Work life balance, low pay, inequality, bro-culture

Used to be proud of working at this place
Sr. Systems Administrator - IT Production Services (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZOctober 6, 2015
Love the company and the mission, but Management is a disaster. If you work hard and actually know what you are doing, it won't get you far.

every day was very long. learned a lot about weapons that save peoples lives.management could be a lot better.co workers were what made the place good to work for.

What I learned
Purchasing and Production Manager (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZSeptember 16, 2013
the general public has little information on the use of the Taser and that is shown thru the TV reports that come from reporters. Taser International does a great job in teaching the Law Enforcement community on correct procedures and now with their new camera this should assist the officer in cases where it is a he said she said lawsuit or complaint.
Pros
The company was great to work for
Cons
none

LITIGATION ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZMarch 7, 2013
Being at TASER I learned that everyone has a goal that they are trying to reach, however at any given time if someone needs assistance there is always an employee or employer there to assist in any inquiries that may come up.
