Featured Review

Current Employee - Graduate Teaching Assistant

I have been working at Bowling Green part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Nice people to work with

Cons

none that I know of

Current Employee - IT Manager

I have been working at First Solar full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

First Solar is a great place if you want to be challenged. There are many opportunities for great ideas and those ideas are welcomed from all associates. The pay and benefits are great for NW Ohio,... but that is not a motivator for me. I want to be challenged and be in a position where I can use my skills to make people’s lives better. I get to do both of those things every day.

Cons

Sometimes see misalignment on company goals. Teams will operate in a specific way to check off their goals, even if it is detrimental to other teams. It seems to be a result of too much pressure in a... challenging environment.

Advice to Management

Senior leaders do well with town hall gatherings, but I think they are missing some of the real interactions at the plant, both positive and negative. It would be good to have more presence outside a... formal town hall. Their words could go a long way in motivating the teams.
