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

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.

    Pros

    If you like working with smart people and relish fast paced, challenging work in a growing industry - this is the place for you. Oh yeah, and you help save the world while you're at it.

    Cons

    "do more with less" - but this should be seen as a challenge to be smarter, not really a con

    I have been working at SolarCity as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Happy people working with a purpose they all believe in
    A green tech company with a very real, long-term vision
    Just went public, it's soaring and here to stay
    Surrounded by people with UNBELIEVABLE work ethic

    Cons

    Not a startup anymore, having just gone public, so the culture may shift
    Those who can't carpool will have to park nearly a mile away and take a (reliable) van shuttle
