    Approves of CEO

    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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Capstone Turbine (Chatsworth, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Six 30 minute interviews scheduled with HR, three Product Managers, Customer Service and Sales and Marketing. Interviews were basically conversational. Office environment was hectic and interview times and personnel changed throughout the day. I was notified an offer would be presented within a week of the interview. The actual offer arrived after a background and reference check.
