    I worked at SolarCity full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great product and high moral at corporate level. Good benefits for those who end up staying for any length of time.

    Cons

    High turn over. I was there for little over a year. By the time I left I was the most senior person on the sales team. They seem to hire lots of reps and then get rid of the ones they don't like. Kind of the throw mud against the wall and see what sticks philosophy. Not a lot of support or loyalty to employees. They want "one visit closes" meaning you need to get a signed contract at the first meeting with a prospect. They are looking for a high pressure, manipulator, used car salesman type of sales rep. During my 13 months at SC our compensation package changed 3 times. Each time was a sort of repackaging of salary and commissions, and after taking out all the hype, each time resulted in less pay. When I started I was informed that half of my appointments would be set for me and I would get the other half from working in Home Depot. What I found was that appointments were given out under a system of favoritism that SC encourages. In the end there were no appointments being given to me and as the Home Depot market is being exhausted fewer appointments are available there. Their answer was door to door cold calling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as people and not commodities or mere business tools. Ever since SC stock went public the emphasis has been on short term numbers instead of long term business success. It is a great product, you don't have to drop to the lowest common denominator to be a leader in your industry.
