    Pros

    Get a chance to work on the hopeful technology in solar industry that could be the major energy source of the world someday.

    Cons

    Poor management killed the hopeful company.
    Too much big company politics for a small startup company
    A lot of waste

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your time. Focus on solid technology development and validation step by step. Take your time. Don't rush to sell unproved prototype in large quantity.
