Pros

The people who work here are very bright, hard-working and passionate about what they do. Rewarding work so when you go home at night, you're tired but fulfilled. I loved every minute working there. Great management team and lots of perks like 100% employee health benefits, free food and great parties too.

Cons

The very LONG hours, it's a typical start up so you really need to put in long days and weeks too.

Advice to Management

They're doing a great job, keep it up!

    You won't realize how harsh it was until you get laid off.

    Pros

    Good group of people on the whole, although over time they've weeded out those with opinions that are too strong, who are too expressive, and too creative. So if you're the picture of mediocrity, you'll probably be Director of Somethingorother in 6 months.

    Cons

    There is little respect for employees by the number-crunchers...they will expect overtime because they made bad predictions and now a bunch of jobs need to be reworked, or they got rid of intellectual capital and now they need the help. Expect to be "messaged" to, misled, and manipulated. Expect to watch fools be elevated to positions of authority.

    Advice to Management

    Don't think that you can trick your employees anymore through planned messaging into believing the patriotism forever. They believed in the mission to begin with. You are killing that faith. I've been completely ruined for the corporate business environment, because if Sungevity could get it so wrong, I just know the whole thing is effed. For that, I thank you. I'm freeeeeeee!!!!!
