Suggestions for improvement

  • More transparency and tangible requirements or milestones for promotions/pay raises. Currently that area seems to be arbitrary and lacking of clear definition.

What I like about the company

First Solar has a lot of smart, driven employees, and you won’t be disappointed in the work ethic or the leadership of coworkers. The culture is normally relaxed, but when crunch time hits and we have to come through, everyone seems to pull together and figure out how to get the job done, even in a fast-changing and volatile industry. Especially in development, things change rapidly, so you have to be able to adjust priorities quickly on the fly, but constant challenges and changing roles and goals every 6-12 months keeps it interesting and provides ample opportunity for employees to prove their value.

What I dislike about the company

Sometimes pay raise and promotion requirements and criteria lacks transparency.
