    I have been working at Solar Turbines full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You get to learn Gas Turbine Technology and Systems, PLC Controls, and Gas Compressors.
    Solar is your ticket to other and better companies in the Oil and Gas Industry so USE Solar Turbines as a Stepping stone only.

    Cons

    Lack of Leadership, they are becoming just another company in the neighborhood.
    Managers don't have a clue and People get promoted by the use of the "Buddy System" or Brown Nosing.
    Some Technologies are outdated.
    Lack of Opportunities If you work in a Field Office or as Field Service Representative, The only People to get promotions are People in the San Diego Headquarters and only those who "High Five" Managers and People around.
    Solar Turbines is failing to reward and keep the best talent.
    If you are an ExPat please forget about Immigration/Green Card as It may take years based on Solar's Lack of strategy or Prompt Sponsorship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solar Turbines is lacking of leadership and vision for a near future, People is starting to leave the company and taking better opportunities with the Competition or Customers.
