    I have been working at SolarCity full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There is only one reason I would consider this position; helping people save on their electric bills. It is truly a gig where you can walk in to 3 family houses every day and honestly bless them financially.

    Cons

    Company is constantly redefining their metric for what they consider success for most positions. This is common for disruptive technologies and high growth companies. Unfortunately, it means that you will not have any job security for first five years. Everyone's head is always on the block.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As you know, you have an amazing offering... However, you do not have an amazing marketing strategy. Instead of constantly threatening to lop off the heads of your sales teams (who really are on board with your vision), try to help them tell the story of how the average family can truly benefit by signing up. It is only natural for American's to be skeptical when they are offered something so beneficial with absolutely no upfront investment. Use that to our advantage... Uncommon value is your prison, uncommon marketing is your key.
