    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Nuvosun full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company outlook is bleak. Good hardworking employees. Technology is exciting, but free thinking is not encouraged. Benefits are fully paid by company, before not sure with Dow. Flexible hours if your liked by mangers.

    Cons

    Bad management, not professional. Many near misses with regards to accidents. Micro manage by executives. CEO (Kirk Thompson) not recommended to lead this or any company. Misleading the direction of growth for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees,

    I worked at Nuvosun full-time

    Pros

    Laid back (most of the time), flexibility to leave work during the day sometimes, high tech manufacturing, don't have to work weekends

    Cons

    Selenium smells really bad and results in sinus issues (Selenium ingestion has also been known to cause lackadaisical behaviour), not even an ammonia detector on the floor (I found out they're relatively cheap after leaving), Cadmium sulfide everywhere. Pay is below average for similar jobs (typical in the solar industry) and there's no money for perks like good coffee, snacks, etc that come with many hip silicon valley...

    Advice to Management

    Get some better PLC programmers and automate simple things like basic process control. It's ridiculous you have people turning knobs by hand when we have powerful computers at our disposal. Invest more in IT and hire someone to make a decent data system that everyone can access directly easily. The lack of easy data access to every employee will kill this venture.
