    I worked at Canadian Solar full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, decent software

    Cons

    Horrible management, bully angry at the world supervisor, no objectives or career plan outlined, thrown in with the wolves with no training, then get yelled at for failing. 1960's style vending machines dispensing horrible (free) beverages). Below average pay. Below average benefits. Below average ergonomics. Spartan office. Too many coops.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your lower managers to be effective and lead by example, not 1960's bully tactics.

    Pros

    Good money and busy work schedule

    Cons

    Inconsiderate supervisor and intolerable amount of swearing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be considerate and act professionally in the office environment. Less favoritism and attacking language can make the office environment a much friendlier and less stressful place to work
