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

    Pros

    Engineers have a long leash and can take on their own projects. There's a lot of freedom to explore one's own ideas and solutions to issues arising in the existing technology. That attracts fairly interesting coworkers.

    Cons

    Work can be very routine.
    Depending on the group, there can be limited advancement potential.
    Funding is always a little uncertain.
    Pay tends to be a bit low.

    Advice to Management

    The organization can be a little bit tribal. It's important to foster communication and collaboration, not only between groups but between different levels of management. Broad data meetings are probably not the best way to do this.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FuelCell Energy (San Diego, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    They asked standard technical questions and behavioral questions. The interviewers were friendly. They took me and a few other candidates to see one of their plants nearby. This interview was at an Orion International Hiring Conference.
