Consider working there if you don't have a job

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Bloom Energy full-time

ProsInteresting technology, you will make some good friends, it is the trendy green. It is a good location if you live around Sunnyvale, Togo's and Subway are close.

ConsBackwards management, poor leadership, poor managers, there is a foreign cast that dominates the company. Politics are the worst I have ever seen. Don't try to shine, you will regret. Just nod and do what your manager tells you to do.

Advice to Senior ManagementNot worth it trying to state anything. I hope the company makes it, and doesn't become another Solyndra. The meaning of leadership is not understood in your organization, you need to really understand what is the essence of leadership. If you had a sincere employee survey, lots would come up.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A lot of hype, not a good company to work for
