Friendly workplace but work is inconsistent
Test Technician (Current Employee) – Latham, NY – April 26, 2017
Plug is a good company when it comes to the interactions between colleagues and communication between employees and their superiors is excellent. Monthly all-employee meetings keep the entirety of the work force knowledgable and up to date with the company and monthly company lunches are a plus. The work provides plenty of exposure with fuel cell technology. However, there are several shortcomings: inconsistent work and unreasonable deadlines cause periods of low work where idling is prevalent and longer periods of high work requiring employees to work constant overtime, skewing the work/life balance and preventing the use of vacation time, lower pay relative to other technician jobs in similar fields, and a high turnover rate due to the insistence of only hiring temps, most of which have little to no experience with technology.
Company lunches, friendly environment
Inconsistent work, high turnover rate
