Pros

Pretty good training, coaching, & company culture. Installed the first solar panels commercially in the US.

Cons

Weak presentation / sales documents, which could be improved to give a little more to the guy knocking on doors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get better presentation documents.

    Pros

    It's solar, which can be the coolest thing in the world when done correctly.

    Cons

    A lot of our co-workers are incompetent which makes for a bad business model. In comparison to other solar companies who are filled with bright people, this company does not have a lot of sharp tools in its shed. As one can imagine, it costs money to fix problems that careless individuals create. This company will probably go under soon b/c I can't imagine them remaining at all profitable when they pay thousands of dollars of penalties in attempt to mitigate their errors. I would say 10% of the people here care about the quality of work that they're doing; however, the other 90% who don't care about their jobs will probably be at the company the longest b/c they don't
    aspire to bigger and better opportunities. The same 10% also spend the majority of their time mopping up the mess of their coworkers instead of running an efficient operation with spare time to contemplate business strategy on growing and developing the company.

    Turnover rate is becoming increasingly higher....all the job postings do not mean that this company is growing, it means that people have left their positions. If you are someone who strives to do a great job, this company will stress you out because you'll be one of the few who cares. So, I leave you with this advice, avoid the stress of a job that pays too little surrounded by people who aren't very good at their jobs, and just go be a dog walker or something, anything, until something better turns up in your appropriate professional field.

    Oh, yea, and race and gender tend to play a role in hiring and promoting, i.e. minorities are not treated well here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In this economy, there are a lot of great people available, keep your eyes open and don't rush the hiring process, planning is key. Paying the "right" person more and attracting top talent actually has a positive return on investment (the value is in "avoided costs" that will otherwise be incurred with a lesser quality individual).

    Real Goods could be real goods, but did not invest enough in people who were responsible and dedicated to their mission.

    I worked at RGS Energy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great potential of a California based company to grow nationally with first in industry history and outstanding overall mission. Some top experts in the renewable energy world in the company. A leading company that could...should be growing.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the company did not handle people problems very well with staff and turnover is too high. There is no culture of dedication or sense of stability/or even creative risk taking with the opportunity to grow long-term. Seemed too much like high pressure sales and not very attractive enough to keep folks long-term working or even interested due to lack of trust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop relationships with staff and train people. Pay people well that are crucial to growth and dedicated. Train everyone to work through problems to solutions instead of running from them thus creating bigger problems. Fear breathed through is actually positive energy. Keep ideas positive even when negative ideas seem in front of you and lead with dedication to the truth always and the facts. Don't be so quick on the you're fired trigger like past Donald Trump....on TV. Shameful today when so many Americans want and need to work as the green industry has promised. Protect what really works for the company's sake! Take more risks and stop high turnover rates respectfully. Don't let bully's get away with it!
