CAP = Capital Always Pursuing (Always Fund Raising, Never Building Anything)

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Alameda, CA

I worked at Campbell Applied Physics as a contractor for more than a year

ProsPleasant environment in a beautiful location. Lovely building and nice people to work with. Strong work ethic among employees. Good paid time off accumulation schedule. Liquid lunches for the principles and the "girls" in the front office. Salaries for secretaries and accountants more than the engineers'. Project managers and engineering techs magically made into engineers. Principals able to take European vacations.

ConsFunding for business coming exclusively from overseas - paychecks not always regular, then funding ran out and the employees were made to work for over a month without pay before finally walking out. A working demonstration model of the desalination plant was built but bugs in system not worked out. Demo model was a sham. Employees regularly exposed to unsafe ozone levels. Seawater released into sensitive wetland area. No certified or licensed engineers employed. County building and safety codes ignored.

Advice to Senior ManagementHaving "30 years in the desalination business" selling doesn't make you an expert in developing, manufacturing, installing and running a desalination plant.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
