The first job I ever had where the management was smarter than me. Work here if you can.

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

Pros

You are given free room to succeed, and success is noticed and rewarded by direct and senior management. Lots of opportunity for rapid career advancement and development. The company is full of smart, interesting, motivated people. Management has yet to do something that I wouldn't do in their place. The epitome of "doing well by doing good". I turned down a much better paying job when I joined SolarCity, and I made the right decision.

Cons

The company is very de-centralized in terms of employee locations, so there may be a lot of variety in experience. I am not an employee working out of HQ. Many employees are relatively autonomous in the field (for better and worse). This is not a place to coast and requires a large commitment of time and energy. SolarCity decisions can be strict at times, but they're always logical and ultimately fair.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop making video montages to music. Just stop. No. Shhhh...no.

    Pros

    Rapid growth gives opportunity for advancement. Fulfilling and validating. SolarCity provides jobs for literally thousands of friendly coworkers, good for the environment, saves people money, managers that care about their employees.

    Cons

    tends to feel a little corporate from time to time, just because of the sheer number of employees. Very fast paced as we claw for market share, sometimes feels a little too fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Innovators, Changing the world, making a difference

    Cons

    The reduction of team meetings. One meeting every 5 months is not enough when your inside a THD store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Randomly reach out to team members in your sales field that showed success and numbers declined. Changes in direct management several times in one year can effect a person performance.
