Good company with lots of promise and poor executive management.

I worked at REC Solar full-time

Pros

Great people and culture. Many caring and compassionate individuals. Good mission and vision. Managers and even senior managers are good and effective. Executive management is lacking.

Cons

Executive management has been terrible, with much turnover and continued lack of understanding of the business. This seems to be driven from the board down through CEO level and other executive management. Executive management does not value employees and does virtually nothing to ensure retention.

Advice to Management

Learn to take care of and value your employees. Executive management needs to take an interest in fostering the skills of employees through training and mentor-ship and needs to understand that non-competitive salaries and minimal investment in employees and business do not lead to top quality talent.

    Pros

    Unbelievable culture and ideology. Great working atmosphere. Excellent management. Lots of career opportunities. Bringing solar to the mainstream that effects millions of home owners.

    Cons

    There are none I can currently think of. The company drives great results and gets great production from all of the different marketing campaigns and the sales representatives are amazing at what they do..

    I have been working at REC Solar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Colleagues are incredible: genuine, smart, talented, real, unassuming. Building great working relationships is easy. People are genuinely caring, and fun to work with, though the environment can be stressful due to the volume of work and tendency to change direction on a dime.

    Cons

    Heavy workload, and some leadership is challenged in helping their teams to manage it. Very chaotic processes which can be unwieldy/amorphous/flawed. Some lack of business savvy exhibited by certain mid-level leadership. And low comp, too low for the cost of living in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Be prepared, because, like it or not, a comp overhaul will probably be in the company's future. While salaries in the region are lower than NorCal and SoCal, they do not correlate to the cost of living, which is still very high in the Central Coast.
