    I worked at Amonix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exciting technology
    Good pay and opportunity for exposure to different areas within the company
    Great coworkers
    Was well funded while I was there ('08-'10)

    Cons

    Founder was a bit wacky
    Death of CEO in 2011 was the beginning of the end
    May not survive Chapter 11
    Price of competing technology has dropped so fast, Amonix technology not able to compete

    Advice to Management

    As with everything within the Solar industry, costs have to be driven down. You're competing against not only other forms of solar, but traditional energy as well.

    You get the opportunity to work on a large number of different projects, and get thrown onto the front line quickly
