    I have been working at Capstone Turbine full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family friendly workplace; great opportunities to help make a significant difference to the bottom line; competitive salaries

    Cons

    cash weak company but on the verge of profitability; weak cash position poses significant constraints to accomplish more

    Advice to Management

    Need to improve focus on core priorities and limit multiple distractions. There are not enough human resources to engage in multiple projects which partially relates back to weak cash position so the need for focus is more important than perhaps larger more profitable companies

    Emphasize shorter, smaller meetings. Don't hash things out in conference, as it takes up a lot of productive work time.

    Pros

    Capstone provides a lot of room for exploring job areas outside your job scope, lots of inter-departmental career growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Routine lay-offs and shakey financials.

    Advice to Management

    Less inter-departmental tension would benfit lower-level employees

    I have been working at Capstone Turbine full-time

    Pros

    Above average pay with lots of opportunity for growth/advancement.

    Cons

    Siloed departments perpetuated by a lack of cohesion within executive management.

    Advice to Management

    Come down from your 2nd floor ivory tower and take a good look at the results of your misalignment.
