I have been working at SolarCity full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Stock and vacation pay, Many great people at the trench level that make strive to create a good experience for the customer.

Cons

read Yelp, BBB and Glassdoor. No one is minding the store. customer has been forgotten in the thrash since post IPO. All customer care is administrated from Las Vegas. Poor communication and new hires that are not trained to place the customer first.

very obvious that many of the glassdoor reviews are written by company insiders. would not be surprised if they post a position for someone to write reviews to counter the poor reviews they receive.

    I worked at SolarCity full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers were great and friendly.

    Cons

    Some managers/supervisors belittle their team and do not treat employees with respect/dignity. Asked to work during vacations and threatens termination for taking a vacation. Secretive about everything with no room for open communication. Quick to point fingers and nitpick. Not afraid to alienate certain people and make you feel like you should be grateful to even have a job there. Ignores requests for meetings and tells you they are too busy for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging and start living up to your promises. Assess employees based on merit and not how much time they physically spend at work (some people are just online shopping while at work to rack up hours). Take an interest in your employees and understand that employees are people too.

    Pros

    Employment, and that's about it.

    Cons

    High stress environment where bullying is encouraged and done on a daily basis. Unreasonable daily goals at the end of a whipping stick. Teaches how to treat others like trash. The negative culture of who can out do each other on being a bully changes you over time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a loss, the hate begins and is encouraged by the management.
