I have been working at SolarCity full-time (more than an year)

Pros

I stay with this company not for the pay but because it offers the public a way out of the utility monopoly with clean renewable evergy.

Cons

There is alot of secretism that occurs in all aspects of the comany whether it's pay, changes in the field of position but worst of all since the co. went public they are cutting employees pay left and right.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your skilled employees right and they'll only grow with you for a lifetime.

    I worked at SolarCity as a contractor (less than an 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.

    I have been working at SolarCity full-time (less than an 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.
