Great place to work in San Diego. Room for advancement

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

ProsGreat benefits, potential to move up/around, once you get hired on(can get permanent straight on, or temp for at least one year)

ConsHave to bend over backwards to get noticed by management(depending on department), or get into politics to move up. Nepotism is huge.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more involved with employees' development; treat everyone the same

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

All of management is in place… Advice to Senior Management: You really need to figure out what Solar's mission is. Not what Caterpillar thinks Solar's mission is but what is SOLAR's MISSION.
