Please think twice about working there!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Mateo, CA

ProsTheir mission statement is great! I love what they stand for, and their goal. I do believe that everyone should go solar.

ConsI really was excited to start working there because I loved what they stood for. Once I started there, I really saw how superficial everyone was, and how they are only GOAL ORIENTED! They are just focused on how profitable they come across. They over work their employees and DO NOT PAY THEM WELL AT ALL! The Installers and Sales People are under payed. They promise their employees the world, and they do not deliver. They do not care about their well being. There is also no opportunity for growth!!!

Sales Team- Cannot get it together!! They are not set up for success! They are always switching up the goals and their commissions. They are all over the place, and no one has a clear understanding of what the goals are.

Installation Team- They are WAY UNDERPAYED!! They also have un-realistic goals! In this position they are super disposable. They hire them and lay them off all the time! These poor guys are not treated fairly.

Head Quarters- Many of these employees are on contracts and they are promised to be converted, and they do not keep their promise. They are stretched out thin and they do not take care of them. Many employees are not happy there.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey need to start taking care of their employees!!!!! They have no idea that most of their employees want to quit! Everyone is disposable there, and they do not care about them. Many of their managers are not trained and have no business managing people.
