Pros

I believe I am working for the best company of all time. I love working for SolarCity!

The job doesn't leave much time for family and friends; especially if you have to travel out of town.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you've been doing since you brought in Hayes! SolarCity has a Zen like management style: with love, gratitude, and appreciation!

    Pros

    Free coffee and snacks offered in a chic break room.

    Cons

    False training promises; muddled communication events; hidden agendas; lies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In Las Vegas, SolarCity lures you into very low-salaried jobs by offering opportunity and benefits that might become a sparkling reality if the company doesn't get rid of you after a few short weeks.

    The luminous SolarCity Las Vegas office, in dreamy Town Square, is a mangled menagerie of very young, so-called professionals, mostly from the foggy "Bay Area," and those who are leads and managers at this new office truly seem to be in a fog when it comes to training and communication.

    When you are hired and start the job, you'll be told that you have months to become comfortable and confidant at your new job tasks, and do make sure to ask as many questions as needed . Beware, however - if you make one mistake that your lead finds distasteful, the sun will quickly set on your very low-paying career, and you will be out the door faster than a shooting star.

    The work is excruciatingly repetitious, the co-workers, mostly transplants from the California headquarters, are coldly cliquish, and if you do get a gig here, be warned - don't ask too many questions while you are learning your job, or your young lead will admonish you, casting your sunny SolarCity career into darkness.

    The office in Las Vegas was originally inhabited by the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce and is tres chic. But the inhabitants now have put a shadowy pall over the soignée domain.

    SolarCity, here in Las Vegas, I discovered while working there for exactly one month, has no intention of installing solar photovoltaic residential projects here in Nevada anytime soon; maybe never.

    This is simply another billion-dollar company moving from one highly taxed state to Nevada where operating costs are much lower, attracting desperate, unemployed people to jobs that pay just above the federal poverty line.

    Stay away from this joint. Take my word; it's a real solar eclipse.

    Pros

    Fun, Vision, Leadership, Flexability, Exciting! I have been working here for almost 2 years and this company does it right! If there is an error made they fix it. So refreshing. Since I began working here things have gone from good to really great. Each month there is something new and exciting happening. If there is something not working well the company will fix it.

    Cons

    Long hours. It can feel like you are working a lot. I'm compensated for hard work but I have to remember to schedule a little me/family time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep the environment fun!
