    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at SunEdison full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Was great before they were acquired by SunEdison. Wish I could've been around when it was First Wind. Camaraderie with co-workers was good but took a while for long time workers to accept newbies.

    Cons

    Went bankrupt so I couldn't exactly stay.
