    I have been working at Bloom Energy

    Pros

    Very friendly atmosphere, great people to work with, healthy competition. Loved to work with my team because every one was willing to help each other so we could all move along as one solid group.

    Cons

    Challenging and time consuming. Some of the task given to accomplish were difficult but with great team work, it was not much of a problem.

    I have been working at Bloom Energy full-time

    Pros

    It's truly inspiring to work with so many people that are passionate about advancing the state of fuel cell technology. My colleagues are some of the most brilliant and talented individuals I've worked with thus far, and I'm excited to see how far we can go in the next few years. It's a pretty fast-paced environment, but it functions to promote continual professional development, and it definitely ensures that work is never boring. Overall, I've been very satisfied working here.

    Cons

    I wish there were more company events. We do have picnics occasionally, but the company has gotten so big it has started to become a little disconnected.

    Pros

    BE team of highly respected executives and hardworking workforce is going to take this technology available for everyone to reach. New cutting edge technology is constantly being developed to reduce cost and increase efficiency and productivity.

    Cons

    I've noticed that contractors have a lengthly conversion process to become regular employees. However I know they are working on fixing this issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the company grows and expands, have a career path designed for employees to acheive higher oppurtunities for growth.

    I worked at Bloom Energy

    Pros

    cutting edge engineering work, everyone is very smart & excited about their contributions, everyone wants the company to succeed, management is very clear on their goals for each team

    Cons

    since bloom energy is still a smaller company that has yet to go public, the compensation is a bit low, but you do get to work on very exciting projects and there's a huge possible upside if the company IPOs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management is very capable, and is very specific on the tasks they want each specific group to get done each quarter, the executive team is very inspirational.
