    I worked at Princeton Power Systems as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    They are working on some really cool stuff in clean tech. The people were very nice overall and were willing to teach me things I didn't know.

    Cons

    There were some tensions in the company, especially between the sales team and engineering team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to break the tension between the sales and engineering teams because there seemed to be some hostility.

    I worked at Princeton Power Systems full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of room to grow and ample ability to move up. Generous pay, especially when you show your worth. Easy-going atmosphere, very generous holiday vacation, and great, friendly co-workers. Always lots of food around the office too! I would definitely choose to work here again and recommend it, as it is an especially good starting point for entry level workers.

    Cons

    The occasional heavy work load which generally comes in waves, in which all employees must be willing to jump in wherever needed.
