    I have been working at Borrego Solar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Borrego is a very well managed company, and is always striving to improve its business. Management is transparent with company goals and performance, which fosters an open culture. The company is also focused on continuous improvement, and encourages employees to always find ways to improve.

    Cons

    Management theory can sometimes get in the way of practice, which can lead to a lot of time and energy spent on improving process instead of just executing on the work. It is also a fast growing company, so there are also some growing pains.

    I have been working at Borrego Solar full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have nothing but good things to say about this company. I have never seen a company strive so hard to create the perfect work environment for all it's employees. The constant encouragement and support from other colleagues is simply incredible. I highly recommend joining this company to anyone, if the opportunity presents itself.

    Cons

    The company is very focused on being lean which may cause people to feel overworked at times. It seems to me to be mostly growing pains and most people are willing to lend a helping hand regardless of how busy they might become. Definitely a work hard, play hard mentality throughout the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening. It really is the most appealing quality Borrego has. It doesn't matter who you are, your voice can be heard. That's a great feeling!
