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

Pros

Solarcity has a very high energy atmosphere with a rapidly changing environment that presents constant changes/challenges. Working for Solarcity for the past year has been extremely exciting, and I look forward to watching the company grow. It is a great priviledge to work for such a great company.

Cons

As a result of the fast pace and high expectations, there is quite a bit of staff turnover, which can sometimes take a toll on morale.

    Pros

    If you want experience in the solar field

    Cons

    They will push you to sell and then "Separate" for you before they pay commission. Very cold place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage your people for success. You are getting a bad rep on the streets for your "At Will employment agreement.” It seems like you rather let someone go then to manage them to success. Very Jr.
