    I worked at Acciona full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked with some of the brightest and fun individuals while working at Acciona.

    Cons

    HQ often sent people from Spain to head up key roles. These individuals did not always understand the nuances of US business and could be difficult to work with when they disagreed with US practices, laws, and regulations.

    I worked at Acciona

    Pros

    The other members of my team were pretty good. The job was also pretty easy. The company mission of renewable energy and sustainability is good.

    Cons

    The company would rather send over someone from Spain to fill a role than to hire or promote an American employee. Even the CEO of Acciona US is a Spanish person. It is used as a stepping stone to other jobs within the company in Spain. There is a terribly toxic company culture here that is no doubt a product of its Spanish influence. On my last day with the company, my former manager did not even shake my hand. I recently witnessed the director of HR telling an employee on their last day "Don't let the door hit you on the way out" after ridiculing them for 15 minutes about why they were leaving. That was the most unprofessional thing I have ever witnessed. On top of these issues, the pay is very low, the schedule is terrible, they have the bare minimum amount of people to operate, and the office in Spain controls all aspects of the NA side of the company. I cannot stress it enough, this is a toxic company that has no interest in promoting it's American employees.
