I have been working at Bloom Energy full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Very Good Technology and the growth of the company.
Great future .
making good contribution for making this earth a better living place.

Cons

Knowledge is not shared just do what you are asked to do, don't try to be smart
Discrimination - if you are an south Indian this is the BEST place to work, In Mumbai 75% employees are hired from south Indian colleges and are favored in every way they can be
performance based Promotions are given based on regions and casts and how much u lick ur boss

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For now many people have advised them but never taken in good spirit and no improvement
HR dept is dead already ,
Just need to change one biased person and i believe there is a replacement for him in the office, bloom will be a good work place again (i have seen this company before this person's arrival)

    Pros

    Interesting 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.

    Cons

    Backwards 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 ManagementAdvice

    Not 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.

    Pros

    The company has grown to a place where the product is great, and so are the people that have built the product. The management is terrible.

    Cons

    This company is ALL about poliitcal cast system, just like in India. It is an indian company in the US, not a culturally balanced American company at all. Only Tamil people are recognized and there is no company loyalty to long term employees. Your only answer is yes, no room for discussion to all topics, despite how illogical some can be. Complete management with negative reinforcement, no positive reinforcement or coaching or development of team members from the managers. Not enough resources or money to get your job done properly. Discrimination is visible with the Indian cultures and also females.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    realize that the people who made this company are valuable, and some serious adjustment needs to be made to retain the people who know all about Bloom's strengths and weaknesses.
