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

    Pros

    Fast growing company with great potential. Upper management working on to be one of the best company to work for, generally talking they take care of the people. Most of the time it is a fun and rewarding environment. Attracting many young supper smart people especially of the finance area.

    Cons

    It is not the best company for an engineer, since the company is focusing on finance, project finance, keeping revenue generating project and looking for long term appreciation, value generation. Middle management sometimes blocks/ignores the efforts and communicated values of upper management.

    I worked at SunEdison for 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 . . . .

    WONDERFUL culture and people. Supportive and appreciative! The best place to work and feel valued!!

    Cons

    Sad story surrounding current bankruptcy proceedings. Apparently, bad decisions made within upper management that are now affecting all in our division with layoffs and plant closures. This company was great and I truly loved working here, until all of this started to crumble.

    I have been working at SunEdison full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers that are talented and intelligent. The benefits are beyond average. Health insurance is great and reasonably priced. Maternity leave is 4 months and 1 month paternity leave.

    Cons

    There is a lack of processes and systems. No direction from managment. There isn't any communication from management. There is a perception that the CEO and upper management doesn't know what they are doing.

    I worked at SunEdison for less than a year

    Pros

    Freedom of schedule, didn't micromanage.

    Cons

    Lack of communication with upper management and other departments. Difficult to get jobs installed because of numerous subcontractors being hired out. Lack of options to customer, only a PPA or a Mosaic Loan was offered. Lack of a marketing budget and overextending themselves financially along with no communication from corporate or management in the final weeks made this company a real adventure to work for.
