Pros

ECD is a pretty cool company because they are really stupid sometimes but they are in the right industry at the right time. I dont know why Stan was so good at science and bad at business but he was. Very bad. I think the new guy is a lot better for sure. The people are all very nice and I like how everyone gets along. The problem is that they are all old friends of Stans and not really suited to the roles they are in. The company basically has a few good people they found as consultants or Mark brought with him. They run it.

Cons

Bad management. They need to get rid of consultants. Just hire those people if they need them so bad.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to take advanate of the industry.

    Pros

    When business was growing, it was a great place to work. Tuition reimbursment, bonus plan and good benifits contributed to job satisfaction.

    Cons

    In emerging solar market, recent economic issues have forced major restructuring and lay offs. Internal communication was also poor. Advancement from within was very difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internal communication and professional development would improve employee satisfaction. The top heavy executive team, including recruiting exclusivly from outside the company made it difficult to respect the management team.
