I worked at SUNTECH AMERICA

Pros

Pros:
It's a paycheck.
Very good health benefits.
Great people, very close-knit workers.

The people are what make this place.

Cons

Cons:
Extremely political upper management filters down into attitudes of operation-level workers.
Lack of job security.
Deliberately poor and evasive company communication.

Suntech has experienced enough shake-ups in the last year to make even a native Californian nervous. Just a look at the news shows heavy lay-offs, a scandal or two, and the removal of top-level management.

It all contributes to a strong 'abandon ship' mentality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the company more about profitability and less about egos.

    Was a great, entrepreneurial company but has deteriorated. Stay away if you have other options.

    I worked at SUNTECH AMERICA (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a job if you are desperate.
    The world's largest manufacturer of solar panels, but number two is catching up fast and will be number one this year.

    Cons

    Very political, incompetent management, financial instability, declining shareholder value, no innovation, do not value people. Not a long term move. US operation controlled by China and essentially a communist value system. There have been several rounds of layoffs and most everyone still there is looking for another job.

    I worked at SUNTECH AMERICA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A thriving, profitable, viable company with smart employees and great benefits, ground into the dust by the incompetency and greed of its Chinese overlords. A big waste, a damned shame.

    Cons

    It doesn't exist any more, I guess that would constitute a pretty big Con.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back in time a couple of years and have a good, hard think about some of your decisions.
