SPG is Okay
Project Coordinator and Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Novato, CAAugust 13, 2013
It's solar and they do or did EPC like none other in my eyes. They have great benefits and they encourage education. There is a VERY HIGH turnover and services offered change regularly. Over all they are stable and if you can try your hardest then you will make something of yourself there. My personal experience was good overall.
Pros
Solar industry, loyality benefits, encourage education, good benefits, etc.
Cons
High turn over, constant shifting and going back to original state over and over

Fun and challenging atmostphere with great team players! Most are willing to help no matter what the task or if it's not "their job." New management is moving and shaking and it feels like things are going to really ramp up, very exciting to see what's coming.
