Current Employee - Regional Sales Manager

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

    Energy Efficiency to Solar

    I worked at SolarCity full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company has good canned sales presentations and sales tools

    Cons

    Company dropped the whole department on a Monday without any employee notice. The solar sale is a pitch, no real skills needed other than bothering individuals shopping at home depot. Solar sales management is inexperienced and overall lacks people development skills and there is no career path. The commission plan is paltry 35K for all sales + commish is well below market rate, esp for San Francisco Bay Area.
