    I worked at Brightsource Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced start up environment. Get to wear a lot of hats and gain hands on experience.

    Cons

    Challenging to balance work/life. Failed IPO. Business plan shifted to international projects so massive reduction in U.S. workforce.

    Director of Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    In person interview with VP of HR. She never responded to follow up emails about the status of my candidacy. Extraordinarily unprofessional for someone at her level. In my career refusing to follow up with a candidate after you bring them into the office is unheard of.

    Interview Questions

    • She didn't really interview me, she left the room and handed me off to a subordinate.   2 Answers
