    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Belectric full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Solar Design, Clean Energy, nothing else.

    Cons

    Company is now being managed by a failing balance sheet. If you join, expect to last no more than 1 year (Average Employment there). Okay they had over 4 or 5 layoffs within the last 2 years alone. This is a crazy company. It has a lot of rude employees too. Run far, run fast, unless if you have no other option !!

    Advice to Management

    The CEO, Financial manager, and engineering manager, do not care about your company in the USA. In fact, the last two dislike the fact that the US branch is reporting to Germany.

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

    Pros

    Using green technology and very interesting projects. Still young company with a lot of room for growth and many possibilities. Great compensation and benefits during time of employment. Enjoyed working with many of the original staff. There were a lot of team building field trips.

    Cons

    Lack of consistent projects. Lack of collaborative atmosphere. Micromanagement and departmental competitiveness contributing to errors and possible loss of revenue. Current senior management may have changed motivation.

    Pros

    i just love to work with them, maybe because it is a Global company because it has 15 branches all over the world, and most of all we are in a renewable energy which is good for our environment.

    Cons

    when i will be communicating or interacting to other nationalities with another cultures it takes a lot of observation and adjustments for my self.

    Advice to Management

    constant training to give to all employees, more support from head quarter on all aspect, centralize employees benefits, more advertisement campaign to get more projects wherever in the world
