Time at SunPower did not seem to mean much when promotions or layoffs came along.
No real support for personal development.
About average compensation based on job offers that I received.
Nice fancy office with a good cafateria. The lab spaces are decent.
There are many programs to 'do good' and do things like recycling.
People talked about work life balance as a good thing unless it interferes with getting work done. If you want to advance, plan on the balance swinging towards work.
People often joked about cost cutting
Our group was constantly hiring because we could not retain people.
Lots of ramps and elevators for people where needed
Company has a good safety program to keep the R&D areas safe.
Lots of interesting projects going on.
There is diversity within the workforce. Diverse ideas are supported as long as they come from your boss.
Really cool high end module technology even though it is expensive, so it was fun to work on that. Overall, I worked with a lot of really good people.
Management did not support their employees, or care about them. Focus was on personal results and not team results. Even bonuses were designed to be a fixed pool that managers were supposed to give out primarily to the best individuals, and not distribute if the team did well. It resulted in poor teamwork.
