Pros

As a newer company there are many things undefined or that have not yet happened. This provides opportunies to create, experiment and make things happen.

Cons

The Company has grown quickly, and in certain areas without clear definitions and processes. The lack of defined processes can be costly and inefficient; it is also an objective way of doing business and does not account for the "user."

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get some experienced people in each department to define and COMMUNICATE the processes for each group -- actually put them down in writing. The lack of clarity of processes has created room for error and huge expense. Opportunity to be proactive, versus reactive.

    I have been working at SolarCity full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    SolarCity is the "Google" of the clean energy industry, known for hiring the best in the business, who are passionate, hard-working, and innovative. This is a place where you can really make an impact.

    Cons

    Not for the feint of heart. There is no "dead wood" here and because of our pace and rapid growth, change is the only constant. But if you are flexible and good at what you do - there is no better team or place to advance.

    I worked at SolarCity as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The Company is closed on all national holidays and you will be paid if you are permanent. Free breakfast and snacks all day. Company parties.

    Cons

    No tuition reimbursement. Start up Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the decisions middle management makes is not in the best interest of the company. For example contract employees are dismissed not because of the ability to do their job but based on whim.
