    Pros

    We are saving the world with a revolutionary way to go solar. There is a lot of excitement and passion within the company, and we are growing spectacularly. Although the pace is frenetic, it is fun. Improved and enhanced training is being created all the time.

    Cons

    If you are a reactive person, rather than someone who likes jumping over roadblocks and creating solutions to problems, selling insurance may be a better fit.

    Once was a great company with great values, but now is about making money and politics.

    I have been working at SolarCity

    Pros

    Locations are generally nice with an array of refreshments. Working at place that is committed to helping the environment. Co-workers were generally nice.

    Cons

    Employee's being pushed out due to new management and politics. Lack of organization, Lack of training. Real lack of communication. Selling a values system that no longer exists. Politics, Politics, Politics...there were so many times this happened in different areas of the company. If you worked at the HQ location dealing with the ridiculous parking situation, involving shuttles, carpool, or employee paid parking passes. Long hours are expected and compensation is under market value for lower level positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The founders really need to look at their executive team and ask themselves who is there for the right reasons and who is not. Look at the amount of employees who have left and that are leaving and why. There are serious management issues that need to be addressed.
