SunEdison is very committed to develop a strong corporate culture, in which "Together we Win" attitude is engrained in our DNA. People are empowered and accountable, the Management is always receptive to everyone's input.
The company's Leadership Team is very competent, and implemented a winning strategy that positioned SunEdison as the indistry leader.Cons
I cannot think of cons, since we have too much excitement. You have to be prepared to travel, work hard and embrace our culture if you want to join our team. Hardly a con.Advice to ManagementAdvice
I have been in at least six to seven companies, from pre-revenue startups to multi-billion multi-national corporation.
I can say to our Management: Stay the course, continue to work hard in forging a strong winning and values based culture, keep leading the industry with a gam changing vision.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied through other source. The process took a day – interviewed at SunEdison in October 2014.Interview Details
Originally applied for an engineering position but was contacted by HR telling me that they felt I would be a better fit for the Business Process Analyst. It was almost like a cold call, but as the position sounded interesting, even a little exciting, and related to renewable energy (my passion) I agreed to an interview.
The interview was friendly and seemed to go well. We talked about my resume and the work I have done. Some light technical as it related to solar and modeling, some about how I interact with difficult people. The only curve ball was a question on my SQL skill level (a skill not stated anywhere on my submitted CV). The spooky part is that I am currently taking a class on it.
I was told that I would be sent to the next hiring manager. Unfortunately I received a rejection letter, but on the plus side it was prompt. I like prompt, remove it from the list and roll on. Even still, it is a little confusing to be cut out so quickly on a position that I was cold called on.
The interview was useful in that it answered some questions that I could not dig up answers for:
*Annual bonus, this question comes up in the application submission (must answer in number/percentage so be ready), but has no frame of reference. It appears that 8-16% is a good range.
*Compensation, for this position it was in the 80's which seems to run low for the bay area. Maybe with the bonus, depending on level, this balances.
*No counter offer, when asked "what compensation do you want" (also a must answer on the application), be careful. The impression I get is that SunEdison takes "Desired" as "Must be". If that range is out of their "Desired" it will likely lead to a rejection.
My impression is that not living in the immediate area is a very strong negative. On the plus side they do have a phone number for the HR dept and the reps there are friendly. Hope this helps, and good luck.Interview Questions
