Default Employee Outlook On New Fisker

Thought this was an interesting read.....

Quality management at "New Fisker" seems to be lacking from the view of current employees. Curious who the current Execs are and what their background is... Why don't they have profiles on their Execs? I imagine they must with their new site.

Who is the new CEO anyway? Anyone know if Bernhard Koehler still involved?

“Still the wrong management. ”

Current Employee - Engineer in Costa Mesa, CA
I have been working at Fisker Automotive

Pros
Nice/Capabale People. Good Location. A great opportunity and potentially a really cool product. Seemingly well funded. Used to have good benefits.

Cons
CEO is incompetent. (Jury is out in the COO) Chinese management is distant and completely unaware of how mismanaged some parts of the company are. Benefits are no longer competitive.

Advice to Management
Fire the CEO.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

“cool product, but mostly prototype. Management plays games by making "dashboards" every week and not doing work. ”

Current Employee - Engineer in Costa Mesa, CA
I have been working at Fisker Automotive full-time (less than a year)

Pros
Being in California, electric vehicle technology, close to family.

Cons
Management plays political games with the parent company, Wanxiang Group. The most important task every week is to create so-called "dashboards" to show company progress.

Advice to Management
Fire 1/2 of the executive team. They are talkers not do-ers..

Recommends
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

“Unique Company ”

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
I have been working at Fisker Automotive

Pros
Good location and design of cars.

Cons
Poor and wrong management. COO came from aerospace industry and knew nothing about automotive. Whole management group is in lack of basic skills and visions. No decision was made in time and no correct decision was made. The morale of talented employees is low.

Advice to Management
Wanxiang need restructure Fisker by hiring excellent leaders.
