    I have been working at Plug Power full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    High growth and limitless potential

    Cons

    It is still a start up without the proper processes, personnel and support. Projects are "Winged"- people will get hurt. Production and selling is all that matters. There is a culture of bullying that starts with us allowing customers to bully us that starts with sales agreeing to anything when we rarely can meet project goals as sold. Safety is never brought up and the company shifts focus all the time. Also, they have way too many projects for the number of people that are supposed to lead the projects which means one goes from one emergency to another reactively without the ability to proactively plan. Accounting scandals.
