I have been working at SolarCity full-time for more than a year

ProsWe 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.

ConsIf 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
