SOI (Current Employee), St Peters, MIssoure – July 14, 2014
Pros: we get three days off one week then four the next.
Cons: sometime it's forced overtime
The day starts with checking email to see what shift before did and any issues they may have had from there we keep tools working. We first bond two silicon wafers in the bonding tool then we heat treat them and last cleave them and send them to the next step; cleaning.
It's a lot of computer work so I had to learn the different programs. The management – more... team is great, they are always there to help via email, pager or phone. I get along with most of my co-workers. The hardest part of the job, there really isn't a hard part, I truly like every aspect of my job. The most enjoyable part of the job is I know I'm not just another cog in the wheel, the people at SunEdison really care about my happiness with the job and me as a person. – less
Buyer (Current Employee), Portland, OR – May 19, 2014
Pros: solar industry is a neat and clean idea to work towards
Cons: tight budget and difficult to advance for some
Job security exist for those who are competent workers and for those who want to excel. The company has been operating pretty lean during the last 4 years with difficulty for advancement, and tight budget for pay raises.
worker bee (Current Employee), st. peters MO – October 20, 2013
Cons: uncertain future
This company is ran by middle eastern men who have no use or respect for women. The corporate division has all the perks where as the manufacturing side has not had a raise in 7+ years and works most holidays. The management gives the impression that they have no real direction and the press releases make that clear to the point of being embarrassing. – more... The constant contradiction is costing them millions. – less
Project Management Coordinator (Current Employee), Belmont, CA – May 14, 2012
Pros: get to work at home on snow days, work at home on repair appointments
Cons: missing out of company events, not being able to network.
Most challenging thing about this job is that I work remotely from my manager and team so I have to make the extra effort to keep in touch and create the team atmosphere for myself. I love the flexibility of my job and the management style of my manager.
