Poor leadership
Director of Video Product Management (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZNovember 21, 2017
Laid bunch of people off yet they are on boondoggle when it comes to spending frivolously. DO NOT trust management as they are totally into clicks and no option to be heard even though they claim that you can come and talk to them, total BS.

Stressful
Senior Technical Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAOctober 26, 2017
There is no structure and people are all there just waiting to leave until there stocks have vested. Beware of working here if things move very slow and you have to play the game to have thing work out

Laborer (Former Employee) –  Winchester, VAAugust 4, 2017
It helped when I need it most. They were quick at finding me jobs. Might have been what I wanted at the moment but I helped maintain an income when I was in search for a permanent job.

Poor Work Life Balance & Blue Blood Entitled Culture
AXON Representative (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZJune 20, 2017
Axon compensates well, but they will work you for every penny of it. You will not find work life balance here nor will you find equality. If you'll sell your soul for a dollar go ahead and join them. If you have integrity and a moral compass this probably is not the place for you.

Great Company Culture, but Poor Middle Management
Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZApril 6, 2017
Taser (now Axon) has a noble mission and a great relationship with their customers. It's inspiring to work on important products that are extremely relevant and impactful in today's society. Unfortunately, there is a lot of turnover at the company, and middle management can be misaligned which leads to inefficiency and frustration.
Pros
Excellent culture, unlimited and untracked PTO
Cons
Poor management, lack of established processes

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

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.
