    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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