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

Pros

A fast growing company with lots of room for advancement.
They are really interested in making a change, and they're making it happen quicker than anyone else.
Worked for several very large companies, and I am impressed with the involvement of the founders and upper mangement.

Cons

The amount of people involved in the installation process, and lack of communication between the different groups to make things happen.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to make sure the install process is quicker and smoother to insure a better customer experience.
Need to have one point of communication for customers so they do not receive calls from three or four different people causing confusion and frustration.

    Pros

    They are changing the way electricity is generated in ways that cannot be put into words. These folks are visionary and will make the world a better place.

    Cons

    In the process of building an new industry things change fast, so if you don't like fast paced, this is not for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication, between the teams and mostly to the clients. I think a single point of contact for a customer is a must.
