Current Employee - Field Energy Consultant in Fresno, CA

I have been working at SolarCity full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Lots of experience in the industry, brand awareness, partner with The Home Depot, have done big name projects and have big name partners.

Cons

Growing incredibly fast...right hand doesn't know what the left is doing, sales team has tripled this year and will double again very soon. Not many company generated leads or marketing, push to have sales reps do door-to-door lead generation. Sales managers try to help but have too many people to manage (for a company that is as fluid as this one is).

    I worked at SolarCity full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    At one point I felt SolarCity was the best company to work for since it was very employee friendly. They do make an impact in the energy industry.

    Cons

    They no longer care about their customers or their employees. The expect salaried employees to work more than 50 hours per week and will not comp their time, they burn out all other employees by having them do more work with less people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to being the company that realized the employees help you build the company to the success and start caring for them again. Also bring back customer service. You don't want to be the big chain store of the solar industry!

    Pros

    Very laid-back environment, co-workers/employees are friendly, welcoming and always willing to help with whatever you may need help on. Benefits are awesome. Free-dress Friday. Benefits in the breakroom are AWESOME as well! Workflow is structured and easy to pick up on and do quickly once understood. Opportunities to move up in company a plus also.

    Cons

    I can't say there is much of a downside to working for this company although the basic 9-5 office job. Even then, the company seems to make this downside enjoyable and easy to overlook!
