    I worked at SolarCity full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a high-flying, exciting company with a stud Chairman in Elon Musk.

    Cons

    They've grown too fast, so have not properly trained their installers, leading to multiple rooftop disasters while on my watch. Also, they cut all salespeople's pay once their business values shifted to please their Wall Street shareholders. Get ready for 12 hour days, 6 days per week if you want to get ahead as a salesperson.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the way you manage/value your salesforce.

    I have been working at SolarCity full-time

    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.
