    I worked at SunEdison (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Telecommuting, new offices, great group of people with passion towards solar.

    Cons

    Upper management is stuck on themselves (Pre- Bankruptcy), seeks more compensation while raising the bar for additional sales. Quick to cut you if you make quota. Senior Mgt delusional with target goals . . . .

    Pros

    Without a doubt, the company was full of brilliant and intelligent people. Each and everyone person seemed to have a common goal of transitioning our planet to a clean energy economy.

    Cons

    Senior managements eyes were a lot bigger than their belly; meaning they constantly filled up the organizations plate with a dozen different dishes but couldn't effectively manage them all.

    Pros

    Life was good a few years ago when the Company was growing and had a positive outlook. People were well qualified, worked hard and had fun.

    Cons

    This is a story of great potential lost. Bankruptcy has taken a huge toll in the last six months with many people moving on to better opportunities with brighter futures. This loss of institutional knowledge makes life difficult for those who are left.

    Advice to Management

    Employees remaining are making the best of a bad situation. They deserve some recognition.
