    Pros

    Meaningful work in a company strongly positioned to weather the current storm in the solar energy market. Work in a U.S. company that manufactures products in the United States as well as overseas.

    Cons

    Highly volatile solar market creates risk in future employment opportunities with the company. Company's internal processes and systems are still immature and need to develop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to think beyond the current Cadmium Telluride technology and explore other opportunities and markets that will be strong growth sectors for the future in solar energy.
