Management changes (01/2011) were necessary to some degree; unfortunately the morale has steadily declined since then.

I worked at American Solar Electric

ProsThe co-founder Will Herndon is probably the most genuine person you'll ever meet. Also, the products are from quality suppliers.

ConsPoor sense of direction and unrealistic expectations. Insatiable higher-ups created a difficult environment to thrive in.

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement consistency and clarity for future outlook/directives; increase morale by rebuilding some sort of support system back for employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at American Solar Electric full-time for less than a year

Prosyou can learn a lot about PV
can travel a lot

Consthe management is horrible
it's a dogfight

Advice to Senior ManagementGive employees room for growth and treat them like professionals. The pressure cooker work environment is soul destroying.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Any one can do better.

ProsLearn something new. There are a few knowledgeable people regarding PV systems.

ConsCompensation was very low. No room for professional growth. Quality of work is a joke, especially within the construction department.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe work is not hard. Build a better product and be more efficient. Recognize people with potential and let them grow, challenge them, compensate accordingly. Get rid of the bums. Hire actual tradesmen, not a joe off the street.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
