    I worked at Ormat full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Salaries were good and I enjoyed the different locations I was able to see.

    Cons

    Employees were unvalued, belittled and made to understand that they were the least valuable part of the organization. Good employees were mistreated and the least reliable and most incompetent were promoted to positions of authority over people they had disdain for.

    Pros

    Interesting process that was always changing. The American Engineering Manager was fantastic and I learned at ton at Ormat. The plant managers that had an engineering backgrounds were are great.

    Cons

    A select few plant managers are simply evil. I'm pretty sure at least 2 are sociopaths. The office environment is also very unstable.

    Pros

    Decent benefit rates - awful administrators. Awesome Senior Management.

    Cons

    Middle management has been there for years, they are complacent, resist any change, etc. Ideas, complaints, etc. are treated as though they were never heard. The company is growing, but the managers seriously lack any professional management skills.
