Former Employee - Software Development Engineer in San Jose, CA

I worked at Nanosolar full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good opportunity to learn new technological paradigms at least from a software standpoint.
Some people are really really smart and know what they are doing
Very Open Culture within the Team and Company

Cons

Salary Practices & Employee retention Policy
Not a typical start-up environment , missing Enthusiasm
Lack of strategical alignment amongst different teams, things are not very clearly focused on a single Goal.
Missing a real technical person who can bridge the best in Manufacturing practices with that in Software.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employee Retention policy needs a major overhaul.It costs more in Recruitment and re-training as compared to giving employees market competitive salary.
