Brash, arrogant leadership that chases EVERY opportunity and sinks the ship.

I worked at SunEdison

Pros

Strong, respected brand in solar.
Nice new office in SF.

Cons

Solar is highly volatile industry.
Astonishingly high turnover.
Senior leadership has a Euro brashness that really hurts the business and morale.
Senior leadership did not communicate a HQ move from D.C. to S.F.
Target bonuses are hard to achieve.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus the business in a few key areas and don't chase everything. In one year you tried to expanded into China, Korea, India, Japan, S. America, and Italy. In the same year you also began to manufacture solar panels, OH and you tried to enter the residential market! OH and you tried to get into energy storage! OH and you acquired three companies! OH and you moved HQ to California (w/o being up-front about it to employees I might add)! . OH and btw the stock price went from $15-$3 in 6 months as you burned through MEMC's cash. So, yes...my advice is to focus just a little bit.

    Pros

    Good brand in the solar industry

    Cons

    Horrible IT systems
    Management paralyzed by bad data, fear of keeping their jobs and general incompetence

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in an accounting system that allows you to actually understand and forecast your own business!
    Focus on near-term objectives instead of big ideas 3 years down the road.

    Pros

    New industry, so its exciting to be apart of that.
    Some cool people to work with.
    Salary is pretty decent, although you have to really negociate to get it.
    Work/life balance is great.

    Cons

    Disorganization
    Unclear direction or leadership
    Top heavy - far too many chiefs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone can't be in mangaement; you need little people, and to value them in order to get things done. Also, clear and more frequent communciation from leadership about the direction and invitiatives within the company. Stonger sense of organization and infrastructure.
