    I worked at Plug Power full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, excellent benefits, great pay.

    Cons

    The structure is such that you will have no choice but to tolerate a high level of blatant disrespect and tolerate the tsunami of charades that may come your way if you want to keep your employment. You will need to work much more than 40 hours per week during peak season.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a set of respectable ethical principles and values and do not deviate from them for the purpose of self-preservation.

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

    Pros

    They pay better than most places.

    Cons

    Too many to list. You know there's a problem when your coworkers are all on Zoloft, and they literally cry daily. This isn't a job, it's a slave-like environment. The fuel cells are dangerous, and have killed operators in the past, and will again. Plug Power ignores safety protocol to the extreme. Training is minimal. Any training you do receive is not relevant, and is only done so management can pat themselves on the back. You will never have time off, and when you do, you will get constant phone calls and emails. If you have no regard for your mental wellbeing, or your personal safety, then this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Seek employment elsewhere. Thank me later.

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

    Pros

    Absolutely none. Absolutely none. Absolutely none.

    Cons

    Every single moment working for Plug Power was torture. Neglect of the equipment creates potentially lethal situations. The company has no sense of direction. This ship will sink...without a doubt.

    Advice to Management

    Find another employer.

    I have been working at Plug Power full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, ability to be lenient in schedules, and freedom to make your own decisions for the most part. Ability to rise fast if your willing to move and make yourself available for the company. Great people in the company everywhere and most people are easy going and can just roll with the punches. The technology does have promise with proper implementation. All in all the people in the company are great and fun to work with for the most part. It is a good job overall and I don't regret coming here.

    Cons

    Unorganized, poor leadership and management. The same mistakes are made over and over. The excuse of 'startup in growth phase' expired 10 years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Resign

    Pros

    Company Picnics. Can take a day or 2 off to handle personal business.

    Cons

    Not trying to hire people, revolving door with employees. Training comes from other employees, some managers don't handle work violence correctly.

    Advice to Management

    Quit doing the " Buddy System" and invest in knowledgeable employees.

    Pros

    The pay, learned from some great techs unfortunately that are no longer there as well. The benefits were good also.

    Cons

    Everything else, terrible management, terrible human resources, they belittle you, make you work 70 plus weeks and still its not enough! You can't make up lost times, re think before becoming employed here.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your people!
