Sr. Information Technology Analyst (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – 4 April 2018
IT supervisor micromanages by hours. IT Management does not provide nor do they support training/certifications directly related to the position. Ability to grow within the company is nearly impossible if you are in the IT department, as management does not support nor provide coaching to aid employees to grow.

Supply Chain Management Intern (Former Employee) – Mesa, CA – 28 March 2018
The employees are great. Managers are great. It's difficult to get into the company and to transition from intern to full employee. However, when you get in, you can pivot to different departments and business units every few years and management seems to be really open to the employees personal growth plan.
Human Resources Benefit Specialist (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – 20 March 2018
A climate that employs multiple generations - it is nice to see the young people begin an intership along side a super seasoned 80 year old employee. Also, there are no limits on learning other aspects of company functions. The climate supports interest in other areas of the company. Management is very approachable. Work, life, balance is remarkable. The flexibility allows one to participate in other organizations and aspects minus some of the normal time constraints if work/ project deadlines permit. Meaning if you would like to flex hours of a particular day to attend and support your child's try-out for the school play - there is a climate of encouragement so that this generation of workers don't miss out on the things important to their children while they are still living at home. The cafe allows you to avoid hassle of driving if you didn't bring your lunch and interacting with fellow co-workers in different roles. Weight Watchers, Toastmasters, The Holiday Choir makes this a company function as one that is not stagnate but progressive, innovative and inclusive. They hire the best of the best.
Working for such a well run company
The bank failure in 2008 affected / effected full term hiring prospects. clicks
Operations and Maintenance Technician II (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – 4 March 2018
Typical twelve hour shift consist on continuing processes for the customer; my location required power and chilled water. You will learn various things due to location and the customers needs, some customers only need a turbine, others may require cooling towers or a heat recovery unit with chillers. I say the hardest part of the job is obtaining all of the information that is given; you may think you know it all and then you learn something knew due to a problem. The most enjoyable part of the job, aside from camaraderie, would be the satisfaction of completing seemingly impossible tasks in order to maintain operations.
Electronic Technician (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – 30 January 2018
This was a temporary job for me and I did not plan on staying. However, the skills I learned from working as an electronic technician were valuable. As an electronic technician,I worked with the test cell mechanics and test engineers. It is a hard working, hands-on kind of job which leaves you tired every day, but satisfied. I enjoyed my time with Solar Turbines.

Supplier Technical Engineer (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – 6 January 2018
Solar provided a very welcoming environment. The most difficult part of my job was have an increased sense of urgency every day as my work required defective parts to sometimes be replaced within a day
Electrical Assembler (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – 4 January 2018
Another day in paradise, Every day you learn something new, a typical day at work is continuous depending on what you do. Everyone is productive and collaborate with each other. The hardest thing is getting to work on time everything else is self-explanatory.
Information Technology Analyst - Intranet Support (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – 3 January 2018
This company hires software developers based on lowest cost and not based on ability to do the job. Projects are constantly behind schedule and are not tested properly before they go in to production. Project managers are over worked (regardless if they the skills to manage a given project).
Each IT department is very siloed. They don't work very well to solve solutions and blame other teams for issues constantly.
Industrial Electronics Technician (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – 4 December 2017
Union environment leads to not too many motivated coworkers. Therefore I had to seek better opportunities as in engineering and Management. Thus I left once for an applications engineering job and again for a higher paying job.
