    I have been working at Ascent Solar full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some of the smartest people I've ever worked with. Good amount of responsibility. Benefits were better than average. Part of a world changing product.

    Cons

    Leadership has had high turnover. Difficult to follow when every new leader has their way, never seems to gel with a real strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Little more stability please.
