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

Pros

The company finds a way to keep on going despite never having made a profit. The product is fantastic and needs to find its way into the market to be successful.

Cons

The company has not made a profit and does too many different configurations instead of doing a few very well and is always chasing the sale instead of making a consistent product

Advice to Management

Management is too lenient with sales and is always making engineering then purchasing play catch up. Need to narrow down catalog offerings and stop special orders unless down payment, minimum quantity and reasonable times are stipulated.

    Pros

    Capstone provides a lot of room for exploring job areas outside your job scope, lots of inter-departmental career growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Routine lay-offs and shakey financials.

    Advice to Management

    Less inter-departmental tension would benfit lower-level employees

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good perks, benefits and wage. Employees get time off during major holiday. The place is closed to major bus line and train station.

    Cons

    Executive move in and move out of CFO position. What was going on? The company does not make any gross income and yet does not keep an eye on its costs.

    Advice to Management

    I think you guys are hiding something. Instead of changing executives all the time, why not get the right people in the first place.
