"Solar is a good company to work for if you are looking for "stable". There are a lot of very nice people here, and from an engineering perspective some very intelligent people. From the IT perspective however, there is a lot to be desired. The IT org for Solar suffers from stagnation in leadership. Too much process that adds little value, and really very little technical challenge. The room for growth is non-existent as there is too much job security for the non-technical leadership. If you are looking to end your career somewhere cushy, this may be for you. If you are looking to work with good technology and smart innovative people, and be as good as you can be personally, then look elsewhere. This company does not care about its IT services, to make any changes to it."

Accounting Clerk
in Desoto, TX

"I have been at Solar Turbines since September 2012, and overall I like the company and the people I work with on a daily basis. The pay is good, and the benefits are good if you can get hired on fulltime from the temp agency. Which takes me to the biggest negative item I can think of. Solar Turbines will keep people on as temps for 2-4 years, yes... years, before making any kind of decision as to hire them as full-time regular employees or not."
