I have been working at Bloom Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Fast paced work style. Collegial team approach to problem solving. Exciting new technology for alternative energy solution that is applicable around the world.

Cons

Unrealistic and unattainable business objectives. Company is pushed to the limit every quarter. The best case is your team maybe makes the stated goals. Realistically every quarter everyone falls short which takes a toll on morale. Company Sr. management suffers from an arrogance that impacts how it treats customers and employees. Bloom Energy's slogan should be "Ask not what you can do for your Customer ask instead what you can do for Bloom Energy".

Advice to Management

Management needs to figure out it is in the energy business, instead of viewing itself as a technology and manufacturing company. Many of the Senior management team came from a technical background and suffer from poor business and people skills. Financial plan needs to start from potential sales instead of a manufacturing number that has no tangible connection to actual orders.

    Pros

    BE team of highly respected executives and hardworking workforce is going to take this technology available for everyone to reach. New cutting edge technology is constantly being developed to reduce cost and increase efficiency and productivity.

    Cons

    I've noticed that contractors have a lengthly conversion process to become regular employees. However I know they are working on fixing this issue.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows and expands, have a career path designed for employees to acheive higher oppurtunities for growth.

    I have been working at Bloom Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great think tank with lots of high end talent. People here have the potential to accomplish everything the company sets its goals to.

    Cons

    Major disconnect between the white collar and the blue collar. Kings vs. peasants culture and peasants are replaceable.

    Advice to Management

    Build business connections with the internal employees and the vision will come to pass. Keep the business connections broken and the struggle may continue.
