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

    The company supports its employees and is always encouraging change. Solarcity cares about its employees and their families. The work environment is fun and safe. There is also a great oppurtunity for growth within the company, no matter where you start out.

    Cons

    One of the cons of working at Solarcity is that you work long hours in sometimes extreme weather conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you are not just sending down orders from some unseen location in an office or HQ. get out in the field whenever possible and meet the lowest guys on the totem pole.
