Huge ability to have an impact and greater breadth and complexity than lots of mid-cap & solar companies.

    Pros

    Sunpower provided a great environment to work in. The people were very friendly and everyone is dedicated to making solar energy a real viable alternative for the future of energy production.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work can get pretty mundane. The company is large, and so there is some red tape to get through before work can commence. Also, since it is large, sometimes your work is very focused and does not really let you learn a lot.

    Pros

    Many brilliant minds at work in one place. Exposure to a global team environment. Feel good about environmental improvement work.

    Cons

    Process can bog down progress. Politics can interfere with advancement.

    Advice to Management

    The bottoms up approach is a wonderful way to instill responsibility in others and promote growth. However there is a need for a real connection to be made interdepartmentally. I'm sure things have changed since I left.
