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

Pros

One of the most inspiring aspects of working for this company is that problems are not solved by asking what is possible but deciding what is needed to achieve our goals and making that possible. Our leaders look to where we and the renewable energy industry need to be and help drive change by breaking through previously limiting barriers to mass solar adoption.

Cons

With so much growth and change there can sometimes be gaps in the communication between departments that make implementing change difficult at times. But this is not so much a con as it is just a natural challenge to a rapidly growing company.

    Pros

    I really enjoy my management and coworkers. We're all very supportive to each other and try our best to help each other out when possible. I also love our product and the comprehensive services that we offer.

    Cons

    There should be much more training. The only training that exists is the 2 day virtual training on salesforce and solar basics. Such a big company should offer ongoing training instead of just shadowing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training.
