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

Pros

What we offer is energy, at a better price, it sells itself. Easy to get promoted. Great Pay, Salary PLUS commission. Great management team. Everyone is friendly. Company provides the training and equipment to do your job.

Cons

You have a quota that you are expected to maintain and exceed. You usually work a lot and can basically say bye to your weekends.

    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.

    Pros

    The management doesn't micro-manage too much. The pay is decent. Stock options, OK health benefits, non-matching 401k.

    Cons

    Management could be much better. Just like many sales jobs, the management is comprised of top-sellers rather than great managers.
