    I have been working at SunPower (San Jose, CA) (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Because of the size, it's possible to be broad and to take on new things. Stretch is an daily opportunity. It's an industry with huge growth, and the CEO truly cares about the employees. It's hard work and often more work than you're able to complete, but the rewards are worth it!

    Cons

    It is tough for those who want 8-5. Some people have that but not many.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help subordinates prioritize to ensure the most important items get the most focus.
