Daily challenges
Sr Field Service Technician (Former Employee), Greenville, SCDecember 10, 2013
For the most part this was an enjoyable place to work from the mid management level and down. Daily interaction with these people was positive and everyone worked very hard to meet production issues and schedules.

Dealing with Upper Management was a different story all together.

The entire concept of building a totally electric bus is amazing
Mechanical Associate/Proxy Team Lead (Current Employee), Greenville, SCNovember 5, 2013
Pros: free uniform shirts, very good benefits, ground breaking concept, earth friendly
Cons: cannot advance without a degree
The management is wonderful. Everyone is willing to listen to ideas and try and implement those ideas throughout the facility when feasible.
It is a fairly new company, so there are still some bugs to get worked out, but it will be a landmark company within a few more years.
Currently, we are required to work too many hours, and I enjoy time with my – more... family and I don't take that for granted. There are other jobs, but I have only one family. – less

One of the most mismanaged companies I've ever worked for
Mechanical Associate (Current Employee), Greenville, SCNovember 2, 2013
Pros: decent benefits
Cons: very poorly managed
1. Co-workers telling you to "Slow down. You're working too fast and making us all look bad,"
2. Management not telling you until the last minute that you have to work overtime on weekends (sometimes both days) so you can never make any plans. If they'd take care of #1, no one would have to work excessive overtime.
3. You'd better buy your own tools – more... if you want to get anything done, because there are never enough tools to go around.
4. Management likes to walk around, flex their muscles, and flirt with women versus actually managing.
5. They do not promote from within.
6. There is no distinction made between a conscientious worker and a total slacker. – less

Proterra must be latin for revolving door
Manager (Current Employee), Greenville, scAugust 6, 2013
Pros: in greenville
Cons: lack of stability
Good people but a management team that would rather fire people than spend any time developing people.

Latest management team is more concerned about how things look.

Need to be concerned about cash flow and the lack of bus deliveries.

Still tryig to figure it out
Professional (Current Employee), ProterraJuly 8, 2013
Pros: good co-workers
Cons: unprofessional
The pay is decent. Although if you are in certain depatrments, you will work excessive overtime without any sort of compensation.

The culture definitely leaves something to be desired.
Turn-over is outrageous.
Certain individuals within management are extremely unprofessional.
There is zero funding for training.

Significantly more likely to get let – more... go, than get promoted. – less
