Current Employee - Engineer in Latham, NY

I have been working at Plug Power

Pros

New technology, science, new markets;
sometimes acts like small company
diversity; culture is open and loose
opportunities to influence a start-up into commercialization
has transitioned beyond the "not invented here" syndrome

Cons

Many times acts like large Fortune 500 company;
unfocused, trying to put too many "lines in the water".
fiscal management has been poor.
Accountabilityextremely poor
too many locations to support for such a small company with small revenue stream.
Talented executives have mostly departed.
Has had difficulty understanding what potential customers want and need.
Was too focused on the science and a "build it and they will come" mentality
cultural and management differences in different locations is a divide.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus; follow the dollars; make business leaders accountable for business units.
Situational awareness is key
Hire some executive talent from the markets you are trying to serve. Don't focus on other fuel cell companies.

    I worked at Plug Power full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    the training was pretty good. the technology could have some promise, but the execution is all wrong.

    Cons

    very disorganized. poor work/life balance. POOR PAY!!!! products are JUNK! most "engineers" are right out of college with no experience. little chance for advancement except if you want to travel full time. Temp agency that they use has horrific so called "benefits" They ship units that didn't even pass testing, just hope it works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer better pay and drop the temp agencies for hiring.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
