I have been working at Nanosolar full-time for more than a year
Pros – The employees were nice to work with. Open work environment - No offices. New CEO was awesome to work with - he really brought our technology up a notch. The company was very collaborative in their work environment.
Cons – Company cost too much to run each month and so our product was too expensive. Some employees seemed to not understand confidentiality.

I worked at Nanosolar full-time for more than a year
Pros – Good opportunity to learn new technological paradigms at least from a software standpoint.
Some people are really really smart and know what they are doing
Very Open Culture within the Team and Company
Cons – Salary Practices & Employee retention Policy
Not a typical start-up environment , missing Enthusiasm
Lack of strategical alignment amongst different teams, things are not very clearly focused on a single Goal.
Missing a real technical person who can bridge the best in Manufacturing practices with that in Software.
Advice to Senior Management – Employee Retention policy needs a major overhaul.It costs more in Recruitment and re-training as compared to giving employees market competitive salary.
