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 ManagementAdvice

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

    It's great to work for a company that is helping the world. Things are always changing here, working to be more efficient and everybody is working towards making clean energy the no-brain solution for homeowners and businesses. It's nice to come into work each morning knowing you are doing something great.

    Cons

    Everybody seems to always be inundated with work. Most people seem happy to put in long hours because they believe in the purpose of the company but yeah often times people seem to be overworked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if there was more emphasis placed on employee development. Tuition reimbursement would be nice.
