No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great to be in the renewable energy industry
Great to be working for one of the leading quality products in the market
Energetic people who do what it takes to get it done
SunPower has a lot of credibility in the big solar arena and has great potential to burst out and really become big

Cons

Immaturity in many respects - company is still growing and learning.
Don't get the impression that staff are that important and you always feel replaceable.
The company is up against stiff competition in an unpredictable and growing market. Could go well, could go badly.

    I worked at SunPower full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Located in impoverished rural Appalachia, which is scenic. Town of Athens is dominated by student body comprising 75% of population. Extremely liberal progressive town. Good food and civilization can be found in Columbus, only ninety minutes away. Four Presidents within two years and forty percent staff turnover provided stimulating environment and allowed middle management to indulge their peculiarities.

    Cons

    "The U.S. Attorney’s Office reached a settlement agreement for more than $1.2 million with Sunpower Inc. to resolve costs that were improperly billed to the NASA Glenn Research Center, said Steven M. Dettelbach, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio." Promises of job reviews that never occur.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest.
