    I worked at Recurrent Energy full-time

    Pros

    * Hybrid work atmosphere for the Bay Area. Has some of the freedoms and independence of startup culture (depending on department), but also some of the stability and structure of more established/older companies.
    * Depending on your department, the potential to earn bonuses can be extremely substantial.

    Cons

    * Culture driven largely by sales team, which leads to a lack of work/life balance and a bit of a "bro-y" atmosphere, in general. Not terrible, but something you'd be conscious of if coming from a more laid back environment.
    * Top-level leadership seemed to be on a short leash at times because of being a subsidiary of Sharp, which seemed like a very risk averse company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The focus on the bottom line seems to ultimately push people away. It's culture, not just money, that keeps people around and companies successful.

    I have been working at Recurrent Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fantastic management team, bright, enthusiastic and passionate employees, work hard/play hard culture, successful company in an exciting industry (PV utility-scale solar), entrepreneurial atmosphere.

    Cons

    If you're looking for rapid upward progression, this may not be the place for you since we're a fairly small company, but the company looks for creative ways to meet employee's personal development needs and encourages lateral moves, project work, etc.
