    I worked at Brightsource Energy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced start up environment. Get to wear a lot of hats and gain hands on experience.

    Cons

    Challenging to balance work/life. Failed IPO. Business plan shifted to international projects so massive reduction in U.S. workforce.

    Negative Outlook
