Pros

Solar electricity is an up and coming field and the work will continue for a long time. Borrego is transitioning from a small residential and commercial engineering, design and construction firm (EDC) to purely project management. Borrego was a good place to learn the basics of solar electricity and project management. A friendly work environment and good people.

Cons

Management did not have training for any of the workers other than on the job. Manuals were not updated and no specifications were set in place. Designers were not field experienced. Some of the staff needed more training and field experience. Some of the field personnel did not have good quality control and attention to detail that had to be corrected by supervisors.

Advice to Management

Have training for personnel. keeping your workforce up to date is the best way to stay competitive. Look at employees better and promote based on ability not longevity.

    I have been working at Borrego Solar full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    you have access to a lot of moving parts within the company since everyone is expected to wear a lot of hats....

    Cons

    feel overworked for the compensation considering what the rest of the industry is offering. Sometimes the work doesn't feel like it's appreciated or valued.

    Advice to Management

    be willing to a slightly higher base salary and hire more managers so staff feels like they're being mentored and developed professionally.
