Terrible place to work
Solar Consultant (Former Employee), New YorkApril 6, 2016
Cons: Terrible management, not responsive to customers, cheated me out of commissin
Sunedison is a terrible place to work. Management is the worst I have ever experienced. Most proposals and contracts have errors in them and the design team does not fix them. Every step of the process there are serious issues. From sales to installation it can take seven months and management does not resolve the issue, terrible customer service. If there is an issue with a project instead of resolving it they place the project in Sales Hold were it can remain in perpetuity. They have a step called Verification which the Credit/Verification team was supposed to perform but they never did, so they just put the projects on Sales Hold. I could go on and on. Recently they have been cheating me out of my commission. No wonder they are on the verge of bankruptcy. This is the worst company I have ever worked for.

Great Company but in trouble
Legal Counsel, Senior (Current Employee), Belmont, CAApril 4, 2016
Pros: Culture, business
Cons: financial strains
I started very recently with SunEdison and was aware there had been some struggles in 2015. However, the struggles turned into a crisis in 2016 with a perfect storm of factors that have driven its market value to nearly 0. I like the culture, the diversity of employees that are from all over the world and the fact they are all excited about renewable energy. However, the financial issues have caused quite a few of those people to move on as the future us uncertain.

I honestly don't think ANYONE at the company knows what's going on or what to do....I have never worked for such an unorganized company in my life! They do not have the most basic procedures in place. Complete chaos.

Fleet Operator/Water Treatment/SAF Powder (Current Employee), Pasadena, TXFebruary 27, 2016
Very good place to work. Have been here for 8 years and would have liked to continue here but the plant is closing down. I dealt with connecting full trailers of raw materials to off load for our process, disconnecting empty trailers after offloading, pressure testing empty trailers for leaks before shipping back to our supplier. Testing of process water for P/H and Fluorides and adjusting additives as needed for control. Training of new hires to our department. Loading and offloading Silane trailers and cylinders for our process.

Poorly managed, finiky, always in debt, never pay their bills
Engineering Director & Product Manager (Current Employee), Belmont, CAJanuary 27, 2016
Likes:
1) Try to do right by their people.
2) International company with opportunities to travel the world,
3) still - barely vertical company from Solar ingot to power plants.

Dislikes:
1) Always owes everyone money. Never pays bills on time. Always cash strapped. This is embarrassing and it is difficult to get work done when no-one wants to work with you.
2) Low salaries and small bonus,
3) Focused on company culture but not on results,
4) Short term focus,
5) No understanding of products and lack of commitment to product development,
6) Lack of talented people and lack of people with solar experience,
7) Can't focus on a path forward for more than a quarter,
8) Not good at integrating companies that they purchase,
9) Normal, standard business operations such as AP and IT are paralyzing ineffective. If you want to do anything, you need to do it yourself.

Fast Pace, Interesting, Rewarding
project manager (Current Employee), Newboro, ON. San Juan, Puerto RicoJanuary 25, 2016
Pros: Interesting and Challenging
Cons: Some times you spend long days away from home
This is one of the best places I worked at. The job is extremely competitive and challenging. You get responsibility from the get go and have to be on top of your duty to be able to manage all aspects of it.
I would have loved to be able to go more places with SunEdison.

finance (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOJanuary 22, 2016
Pros: Happy hour every month
Cons: Running in circles.
It could be a great company but still developing and environment is chaotic. Lacks discipline, mature processes and people need a high tolerance to frustration to be part of the team.

Great learning experiences.
Clean Room Operator (Current Employee), Saint Peters, MOJanuary 13, 2016
A typical day I will revive a verbal tie-in from the previous shift. Then check to make sure all available equipment is running. Check the portal for a tie-in from the production coordinator. Using computer programs look up product running that day find and stage the product. When finished processing take product to next operations. Maintain a clean work verbally tie-in with co-workers for breaks and meetings. Call management when equipment is down put equipment down in proper programs. The hardest part of my job is the long hours and mandatory holidays. The most enjoyable part of my job is being my own boss in away
