    I have been working at SunEdison full-time

    Pros

    Amazing growth opportunities (pre-bankruptcy). I was constantly challenged and engaged (pre-bankruptcy). Worked with really great people around the world (most of whom are now gone due to layoffs and poor outlook). This company was an incredible place to work. These days, it's just a sad reminder of what once was.

    Cons

    A lot of work pretty much ceased to exist when bankruptcy was declared. With countless rounds of layoffs, and constant false promises that "this is the last round!", you don't know who to believe. Leadership has been extremely unstable for the past year and at this point is just a bunch of lawyers and bankers. Probably headed toward liquidation.
