    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at SunEdison full-time

    Pros

    High quality project development experience with a world-class team

    Cons

    Top management had a skewed, perverted, distorted sense of value creation, corporate strategy, fairness and meritocracy, remuneration & rewards, etc. That, coupled with faction wars between fiefs at Belmont, Bethesda, Boston, Riverport drove the business to bankruptcy.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. Company ended up where it was destined to end. In a bankruptcy court. Classic example of how a solid company could be "crashed" by misdirected, moronic top management.

    I worked at SunEdison full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I loved my job at SunEdison. I was an IT person at the Portland site and had great bosses, worked on a great team and when I think about the various jobs ive had over the years I think some of the happiest times of my life were spent here. I started working at SunEdison when I was 24 and got laid off when I was 31. My Managers and Co-Workers were all great and I truly felt appreciated for all my hard work. It was a great culture and I've been gone from there almost 2 years and have yet to find a culture as strong as it was at SunEdison. I am so grateful to have been a member of such a wonderful team. I love and miss you guys.

    Cons

    Financial Issues made for alot of Layoffs. The Leader's bit off more than they could chew and caused the demise of the Company.

    Advice to Management

    Its kind of too late for that considering the Bankruptcy and all...
