    Pros

    The schedule, location, and being part of the renewal energy

    Cons

    Poor management, bad team moral, and an inefficiently ran company with a lot of wasted money that drives operating cost up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many supervisors… 8 supervisors/leads/managers for 14 technicians gives a clear explanation why SolarWorld cannot compete with China’s prices. This company is driving the prices of solar up by fighting for tariffs, but they are not fixing their own inefficiencies to reduce their own operating cost. If one manager cannot oversee 14 technicians then this company is going to continue to struggle. On top of inefficient poor management SolarWorld has a lot of wasted cost such as uniforms, celebrations, fancy newsletters that could be emailed at a cheaper cost, high turnover rates which adds expenses for training and unemployment, and etc... The only way this company will survive the competitive solar market is to look at ways to run a more efficient company and get rid of the wasted expenses and build moral. Get rid of the surplus of poor managers and save some money on the cost of solar.
