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

    Pros

    I got paid.
    Some pretty good coworkers.
    I learned a lot in the beginning. The business is complex so there are a lot of moving parts.
    Hours were pretty flexible. Great for those raising a family or people that have other priorities.
    Fun events like happy hour every week, Christmas party, and company picnic.

    Cons

    Management likes to play dirty and HR condones their behavior,

    The company allows complete idiots to have control over the day to day operations. I suppose the strategy is to push out the intelligent managers and let the dumb ones lead.

    From what I saw and experienced I would never trust HR nor the management team. I'm actually surprised that an employee has not sued the company yet. In my couple years I witnessed quite a few employees treated unfairly from discrimination to violations of the ADA.

    Advice to Management

    I think you are too far gone for advice.
