Good Working Environment, great company to work for. Co-worker and managers off a lot of help and knowledge. The only draw-back was the traffic in the Bay Area.

stressfull job, more lifting heavy loads
Test Technician (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAMay 9, 2018
Working here is not easy. you have to prepare yourself and be ready always. Hard work job, more lifting heavy stacks products. Its hard to be permanent in this company. They fired you out after 6 months and hired you again later.

Assembly Technician (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CA 94089March 30, 2018
Overall, I had a really good time working at BE. The environment was positive, coworkers were nice to work with. Mostly everything I did was managed by manager/supervisor.

Good company for growth
Recruiting and HR Operations Generalist (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAMarch 14, 2018
Pay tries to be competitive, but for Silicon Valley very hard to keep up with the local giants.

To work here you gotta have hustle. People here are kind and smart and willing to take the time to help you grow. You may not get paid as much here, but you will learn a lot and be challenged in ways that will catapult you to a great position and salary at your next company.

Positive Environment Overall
Incentive Analyst (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAMarch 2, 2018
The environment was positive and I was fortunate enough to work in the sales department with positive people who made me feel at home a majority of the time. Contract work for Bloom is a big issue I had noticed, I do hope this has since improved.

Importance of Conserving and maintaining Clean Environment
R&O disassembler (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAFebruary 10, 2018
It is very well respected environment to work for, nice people and fun always helping each other. The job can be stressful at times but not all the time. Company sometimes gives Christmas gifts and bonus. Have barbecues in the summer time and some fun games included in the gatherings.

not a bad job
Assembly Technician (Current Employee) –  Newark, DEFebruary 3, 2018
Good starting rate
most employees are hired through a temp agency on an 18 month contract and they have to keep a ratio of temps to permanent employees. This means that even though you might be a great employee, there is a good chance they will still let you go at the end of your contract.

Black Hole
Engineering Technician (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAOctober 23, 2017
I've been wasting my life at Bloom Energy (place where careers go to die) for about 6 years.
What I've learned here is that management is the most finicky and unreliable place to work for; the company tries to move in 10 different directions at the same time, and what happens when you try to do that? You fall and have to start again.
Pros
Coffee, Volleyball, Basketball, co workers
Cons
Everything not listed in the "Pros" section

CoWorkers are friendly, can't say the same for the supervisors.
Assembly Technician (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CA 94089September 30, 2017
Coworkers were great but the supervisor was not. Overtime is given most of the time, But if you say no to the supervisor you're basically screwed. He'll want you to be available everytime he gives last minute overtime and last minute notice for extra work day and he will expect you to cancel plans for them, especially if you're the rookie of the department.
