Pros

They manufacture a very good product that is attractive, reliable and fills a gap for renewable energy in many locations in and out of the US.

Cons

Management a bit out of touch with day to day employees. Seemed more concerned about the cars they drive and the vacations they take instead of figuring out how to solve problems. Micro management from top management into the day to day operations. No real leadership taking place. Management only looks after themselves. Reminds me of high school mentality.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the revolving door. Many good people left because of poor management and lack of leadership. Know they know this from talking to those that have left. It is a shame they have the ability to fix problems but neglect to do so, so long as they get paid large salaries to do nothing. Listen to the folks that are closest to the customer and then take that information and lead the company. Show employees you can be trusted.

    Cons

    High degree of management turnover is unsettling
    Management structure is unstable, but is getting better
    You need to be proactive with your development, management is preoccupied

    Hire internally for your open management positions, the turnover rate with outsiders is way too high and is discouraging to other employees.
