Decent company
Process operator (Current Employee), Norcross, GAAugust 7, 2014
Pros: hard work, good attitude, and good work ethic can lead to recognitions and promotions.
Cons: mid level management and biased reviews pre selections when regarding employees for promotions.
Medium sized green technology company that manufactures solar cells and panels. 24/7 operation with 4 different manufacturing shifts that rotate. Corporate employees, engineers, and management are on a M-F 9-5 schedule. Process operators start at about 35000 a year but can easily make up to and exceed 40000 a year with overtime and different compensation – more... certifications. Being a 24/7 operation, objectives are focused on output. At times quality and correct work processes and SOP's have been sacrificed to reach target numbers and goals. Mid level management is not overly concerned with employee morale and are more concerned with hitting target numbers and goals. Lower level management that includes engineering and supervisors do a good job in supporting lower level employees needs and concerns. The most difficult part was the everyday changing landscape of management's goals. Sometimes management seemed to be in a state of confusion without a real strategy as to execute their objectives. Projects and goals seemed to be handed down in a vertical hierarchy without any real strategy to achieve objectives akin to "passing the hot potato" and "figure it out" mentality. The most enjoyable part of the job was the diverse group of people to work with. – less

Bad place to work. Run awayyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Technician (Former Employee), Norcross, GAJuly 25, 2014
Pros: ok pay
Cons: not a bright outlook industry
If you are smart you would run as fast as you can from this company. They micro-manage and watch you to death and work you like a dog and then threaten your job. They use under-handed corporate tactics to intimidate you. Horrible corporate culture. However, This is a dying industry. They will closed the door soon since they can not compete with the – more... cheap Chinese solar. – less

Suniva is a place where the Technology is made and experience is gotten
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee), Norcross, GAMay 21, 2014
working at Suniva is one of the best things that ever happened in my life, Everyday I'm going to work eager to learn more and getting experience that would be different than the other days. it's not boring at all, it keeps you thinking wondering and imagining about what you're going to fix or solve. I think the most part that I learned is how to be – more... patient and never freak out no matter what you're facing. I learned how to troubleshot correctly how to get things fixed, how to deal and communicate with other workers and Employees. I'm working in a shift of four Technicians, we are working as a unit we share our thoughts and discuss our problems. Suniva is a solar cell manufacturing we are doing solar cells as technicians we're working on different machines with different concepts, that hard part of the job is that we are responsible on all the machines and how to keep these machine running so alot of concepts and theories you have to know about. The most enjoyable part is the configuration we are doing to get this machines up and ready to serve. – less

Nice place to work with a decent scedule
Process operator (Current Employee), Norcross, GASeptember 1, 2013
Pros: the schedule
Cons: management
Start off by starting up machines and running production to meet company goals. I learned to be patient at this job, the management is needs guidance. My co workers were fun to work around and i meant alot of nice people. There is no hard part of the job, and the most enjoyable is when we have company events
