Opportunities to test, grow, exercise one's strengths

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

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

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementGet 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.

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