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

Pros

The people are the best, everyone in SolarCity is a rock star. We work hard, blood & sweat with no time for tears. The pay can't be beat either, thanks to bonuses and investment benefits.

Cons

Always working in the extremes of all types of weather on the roof. Could be 110° F - 30° F, wet or dry and everything in between.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We should create a design team within Dallas, TX that understand the local codes and designs

    I worked at SolarCity full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Not much by the time I left.

    Cons

    Change can be good but now when its chaotic and this place is full of chaos. They react, badly, to everything. Cut pay and make hollow promises. Working in the call center started out great and ended horribly. They hired from outside the company to run all of sales and made a bad choice. Pay is well below industry standard. Was promised 60-65k first year and made less than 35k, and I always meet my goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the culture set up when the company was small. Do not let outside people change the culture. The sales department was great when under Pete and Lyndon and results where better.
