Pros

Making solar affordable and widely available. You can feel good that the company you're working for is making HUGE efforts to make the earth a better place.

Cons

Pay lags behind what other Bay Area companies are offering. Some teams exist in 'private silos' with a near 'old boys club' mentality.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work with growing SolarCity. Make sure that the great positive attitude and culture are shared throughout entire company.

    Pros

    I Love SolarCity. I love the people. This company is changing the world! The leadership has an amazing vision, and the company has a great culture and goals. Great environment. You feel part of a movement. Everyone is responsive and committed to your success. Their motto is: "One Team, One Dream". And SolarCity speaks shows respect and adoration for it's customers!

    Cons

    Can't think of any one that stands out. The only con is that they are not in all 50 states, yet!

    Advice to Management

    Keep creating a culture! Make sure it is a place for winners. Keep it a bottom up company where everyone is respected and valued.

    Pros

    The company is growing so fast that there are a lot of opportunities to learn, grow, and move up in your department. When you work hard and show that people can depend on you, managers notice when and keep you in mind when a position opens.

    Cons

    Sometimes it feels like the high-level executives do not understand the complexity of the departments and teams that are under them and make drastic changes without getting input from the people in the front lines. People tend to make the change first and see if it turns out well rather than first getting input from all those who will be affected by the change, even those who are not in their department.

    Advice to Management

    Work is so streamlined that any changes that are made affect not only your own dept, but also Revenue, Accounts Receivable, Fund Management, etc. Sometimes we need to shoot out emails to other departments just to one, provide visibility, but two, confirm that it will not adversely affect other people in different departments. Sometime it feels like people in the company make changes without communicating to all parties or jump into a new process and just hope that it will go well.

    My advice is to:
    -talk to the coordinators, specialists, and associates to get their input on changes, even if you feel that it's high-level. these people are the experts in their specific role.
    -communicate changes with different depts who will be even remotely affected by the change.
