    I worked at Solar Turbines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Solid San Diego based company. Good career opportunities (with an education). Good to their employees, good pay, great benefits and safety conscious.

    Cons

    Corporate style company, lots of layers. Sometimes hard to get ahead or get the raise you deserve. Some senior employees are no longer productive.
