Pros

Very positive atmosphere; being surrounded by other hard-working, results oriented prople is a great motivator. Pay very competitively but expect a certain level of expertise and effort as a result, which is to be expected.

Cons

High growth rate can put stresses on any company, and the balance between maintaining the great structure that caused the need for this growth and the ability to scale can cause big changes as the company attempts to adapt. Be prepared to be a little flexible, depending on the position you're looking at taking, as roles may adapt over time.

Advice to Management

Feedback from employees in "the trenches" may help temper some of the resistance to changes, as feeling not heard isn't going to help overall morale.

    Pros

    Since starting at SolarCity, my colleagues and managers have been welcoming and open with communication. I respect the confidential / sensitivity of some company informatoin; but, have found that most questions can easily be answered with regards to the health of the business, company decisions, etc.

    The shuttle service makes it easy and hassle-free to get to San Mateo from San Francisco. I also can leave my car in the parking lot for the week, thus, avoiding unsafe San Francisco street parking.

    Cons

    I found that there wasn't a well-defined training program for my particular role; however, I brought this up and hope our next hire can learn from some of the processes that I went through.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to ask what I'm/we're working on - I'm happy to share!
