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

    Pros

    People are very committed to the company and spend long hours to ensure projects are completed correctly. Can-do attitude enables the company to succeed where others would have given up.

    Cons

    Senior management very disconnected to day to day business of the company, with a focus on non-core activities and trying (mostly failing) to keep Wall Street happy. Lack of capital significantly hampering growth. Make senior leaders accountable for spectacular failures of M&A strategy.
