    I have been working at Sungevity full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nobel, inspiring, energetic, charismatic- top level leadership. Company car, gas. Good benefits. If you live in a state with favorable solar incentives and generous net-metering policy's (Mass & NY) this is an easy job.

    Cons

    Low salary- breaks down to $14.32 per hour. No stock options/ profit-sharing. My commission on a $40,000 system sale was, ($125- before taxes). No weekend days off (ever). No room for advancement unless willing to move to Oakland CA. Not allowed to drive company car during non working hours. If you live in a state with less favorable solar incentives and poor net-metering policy's this is going to be a tough job that pays poorly. If you have student loans, have a family, have a mortgage, or you live in an expensive area you will not survive with the full time RSA pay. I find it humorous they require a college education for this position, it's not even possible to live in the North East and pay student loans on the RSA income. This is a blue color job. You literally are standing behind a table promoting solar energy like any other "home installation service" Lowes or home depot offers, (windows, doors, garage door installs). Sungevity arms you with a folding table, table cloth and a small non-functioning solar panel as a visual display and expects 125 leads a month and 6 sales.

    I hope my personal experience doesn't negatively impact Sungevity or turn off men and women in need of a decent job. The RSA position is certainly a decent temporary job, but it will not be long term career for the vast majority that take the position. Perfect job for independently wealthy people of any age looking for something to do with their time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sending RSAs to get leads during snow storms and harsh weather conditions. Allow the RSA to come up with their own creative marketing ideas, and or, allow them to spend the day promoting the company on social networking sites on days with terrible weather. Increase RSA pay scale. Stop valuing RSAs on monthly lead totals alone, take into consideration local market conditions. Allow RSAs to develop other lead generating events. RSAs must be given a chance to develop leads in other places besides Lowes. No body can possibility do this job long term unless highly medicated. Give RSAs at least one weekend off per month.
