Great learning experience

Borrego trained me well in computer managing. I was able to communicate well with all inspectors. They let me have my own computer and internet for the job. Great place to work and grow.

Own laptop and internet connection

Lots of Internal Battles
Associate Project Manager (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAAugust 5, 2018
There are some individuals that have been there for several years. Some are amazing to work with and there are others that have challenges letting people that are new on boarding employees fit in. They are very judging and they are very easily provoked to eliminate employees that stand in their way.
Pros
Good Working Environment
Cons
Easily pursued terminations from within

Great Company on Many Levels, Burnout inevitable
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAFebruary 1, 2018
Borrego is a great company that has a pretty great workplace culture on its face. The only issue is that sometimes being reliable ends up being a curse as more and more work gets loaded onto the backs of people who are asked to deliver. This may be true of all companies but the great part is that the leadership of the company is full of some pretty amazing and great people. Sometimes they forget to value their employees appropriately, but it seems to be more out of them working so hard and being so overwhelmed themselves.

Great work environment, but sub-par Pay and Benefits!
Employee (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAOctober 11, 2017
Great people to work with but very high resource turn-around. Culture nurtured on safety and innovation. The company needs to be able to develop a continuous flow of projects and bring more stability to the work-force.

Great all around
Director (Current Employee) –  CaliforniaJuly 10, 2017
Senior management really cares about the environment and providing a great workplace for its employees.

As long as you do a great job, you can take off as much or as little as you want. They are also very flexible about working from home, coming in late, leaving early, or whatever else you need to balance work and your personal endeavors.

They support career growth, but you have to earn it. I like this approach. They don't tell us what to do to get to a promotion. Instead they have you work with your manager to work out a plan that meets your own professional goals and a higher strategic contribution. They do education reimbursement as well.

Everyone is super friendly. There is no drama or office politics and everyone genuinely gets along and has fun.
Pros
career opportunities, stable company, great environment, dedication to the environment
Cons
Keep it up

Best Place to Work for
Full Time Employee (Current Employee) –  Lowell, MAJuly 18, 2016
They have a strong working culture and are very transparent with their employees. The company is consist of experts in their fields, the staff is always eager to help each other and do what they can to help newcomers settle in. There are no standard business hours here as everyone comes and leaves at different times. Unlike most companies, they do not "watch" your hours but rather how you perform and the ability to provide your best results.
Pros
Good pay, flexible hours, option to work from home, kitchen stocked with healthy snacks and fruits.
Cons
Healthcare could be cheaper

Fun Solar company with great culture of employees, work/life balance and training opportunities
Accounting Coordinator (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAJune 9, 2015
I worked in 1 out of the 3 locations in the Accounting Department. The office has a easy going atmosphere but everyone is very hardworking and mindful of their duties. Upper management and executives are pretty casual and enjoy treating their staff to outings and holding in-office events for holidays and special occasions. They encourage continuing education and provide tuition reimbursement. Plus- feels good to work for a company that has a positive impact on the environment. It is a rewarding company to work for!
Pros
tuition reimbursement, employee incentives, easy going atmosphere
Cons
little room for growth in some departments based on company size

Fast moving and entrepreneurial culture.
Project Developer (Former Employee) –  Lowell, MAMay 2, 2013
Borrego is a high growth and fast moving solar development company focused on municipal and corporate customers across the US. Hard working, friendly culture.

You need to be self directed and multi-skilled to get this job done, which makes every day a little bit different, and bringing a wide array of challenges and opportunities.
