Gender Equality

I saw many women in many roles.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Time at SunPower did not seem to mean much when promotions or layoffs came along.

Career Development

No real support for personal development.

Overall compensation for your work

About average compensation based on job offers that I received.

Office / Work Environment

Nice fancy office with a good cafateria. The lab spaces are decent.

Environmental Friendliness

There are many programs to 'do good' and do things like recycling.

Work-Life Balance

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.

Company Image

People often joked about cost cutting

Job Security

Our group was constantly hiring because we could not retain people.

Handicapped Accessibility

Lots of ramps and elevators for people where needed

Workplace Safety

Company has a good safety program to keep the R&D areas safe.

Challenging Work

Lots of interesting projects going on.

Inclusive / Diverse

There is diversity within the workforce. Diverse ideas are supported as long as they come from your boss.

What I like about the company

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.

What I dislike about the company

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.
