Useless management and little help and support from anyone

One of the worst companies to work for! Very low morale, they dont care about their employees and they want to make money with the least cost!
Management is so bad and extremely unorganised! They say that they have long term plans and strong pipeline but they really dont know what they do.

Just stay away and dont even think abou to join a company like this, which only care about drinks, parties and become richer (very few of them) by underestimating their own employees.
Pros
Drinks and social events
Cons
Everything else!

Great company unfortunately hit by the reduction on renewables funding. Good ethos, great delivery and global recognition as the largest solar PV power provider in UK & Europe and second largest globally.
Pros
Good salary & package
Cons
Huge targets & susceptible to government funding

Typically I felt that there were too many management positions, however the company was successful despite this.
London based work hours were longer than the norm, but enjoyed a good working environment.

Pay was generous with a good benefits scheme.

Largely let down by government cuts in the FiT scheme, which cost a lot of staff members their jobs.

The company is not "Renewable" focused, but follows the money (it is basically an investment firm)
Pros
Good Pay / Bonus package
Cons
Reliant on Government subsidies

Typical work day to day was fine, however the phrase "To many cooks, spoil the broth" and "Too many chiefs and not enough indians" spring to mind about the management.
Co workers were all hard working and a joy to spend time with.

Day to say running the entire IT operations from Support, Development and Infrastructure. Great company to work for with an amazing culture which is set by the current CEO.

Lightsource deliver on each project and manage the development process to the highest standards - mediocrity is not acceptable and the expectation of each employee is to exceed internal and external standards. The rewards are provided and the senior management team are very well thought of through the continued development of propositions.
