    I have been working at Plug Power full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    3 shifts for second job flexibility.

    Cons

    Management has twisted sense of priorities. Very wasteful.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of production leads and replace with qualified staff. Stop the nepotism, clean house.

    I worked at Plug Power full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    breaks are okay, depending on your area. Had one company paid lunch. free coffee/tea/water. oh they pay for your boots up to $120.

    Cons

    Super boring job for my area. ( sat and watch gauges, and empty a oven for another co-worker at my final last days ) Super hard to find your cell leader depending on the area, seems like to many chiefs. Takes a extreme amount of time to get hired on, some people where temps for over one year, that means one year no PTO no holiday pay, no nothing.

    Advice to Management

    good luck trying to make a profit.

    I worked at Plug Power full-time for 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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Plug Power full-time for 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...

    Advice to Management

    Seek employment elsewhere. Thank me later.

    I worked at Plug Power full-time for 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.
