    Pros

    Cons

    Don't believe these reviews on here. Most of them are written by the HR department. If you want a real sense sort the reviews by lowest first and that will give you a realistic sense of what this place is like. When you start they will make grandiose promises of how much money you'll make and how you're doing the environment a solid. What they don't tell you is that scheduling is a nightmare (you'll never have an install crew show up on time or even the right day sometimes), install problems are rampant (holes left in roofs), you'll be required to attend webinars that solely exist to brainwash you into serving the company even further (every single one the owner would tear up and then pull himself together, almost like clockwork!), the purchase price and even recently the lease price are so overpriced compared to the competition who offer a superior product at the same time. Yelp reviews will be mentioned constantly by prospective customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop comparing the teams to one another internally and worry about the competition
