I worked at SolarCity full-time (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.

    Pros

    They offer a salary and benefits, which is very unusual in this field.

    Cons

    It is like working for the gestapo. They have unrealistic expectations, do not treat you with respect, and have you on a short tether 7 days a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sensitivity training. Learn to treat ADULT employees like adult human beings.
