Former Employee - User Experience Design Manager in Richmond, CA

I worked at SunPower (San Jose, CA) full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great to be in the renewable energy industry
Great to be working for one of the leading quality products in the market
Energetic people who do what it takes to get it done
SunPower has a lot of credibility in the big solar arena and has great potential to burst out and really become big

Cons

Immaturity in many respects - company is still growing and learning.
Don't get the impression that staff are that important and you always feel replaceable.
The company is up against stiff competition in an unpredictable and growing market. Could go well, could go badly.
