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

Liked that I got to do something new.
Engineer Technician (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZJuly 23, 2012
The people there were nice, at least the few that spoke english.

The management was mismanaged and then blamed the workers for doing the wrong thing.

Got a lot of hands on with their equipment, which was nice to see what made them work.
Pros
free soda
Cons
low pay and no benifits.

Production/ Manufacturing Assembler (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZDecember 17, 2014
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. The hardest part of the job was getting everyone one on the same plane for the day. The most enjoyable part of the day was knowing that we make weapons that save life's.

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

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.
