Entrepreneurial firm, but lacking internal structure and systems

I worked at Mercury Solar Systems full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Fast moving, entrepreneurial firm that moved into commercial, utility scale and residential solar systems. They grew very fast, expanding from 70 employees in the beginning of 2010 to over 240 by 2011.

Cons

Market meltdown in NJ exposed some glaring weaknesses in cash flow management, costing, and HR policies. Widespread layoffs among both important and peripheral staff led to serious discontentment and the eventual firing of the CEO. Today it is run by financial folks and much of the upbeat spirit has been beaten out of them

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create better internal SOPs on sales methodology and financing capabilities.

    Learned more about solar after leaving the comany, rather than staying in

    Pros

    overtime. Field workers are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Company under bids on ALL of their projects which creates a ripple affect all the way down to drivers and installers. They look for ways to re-coop some of the money lost by way of letting go of installers and drivers. Upper management never takes pay cuts. Would prefer to fire you on spot than to provide you with constructive criticism. Pay sucks. Very disorganized company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate yourselves.
