Current Employee - Marketing in Oakland, CA
Current Employee - Marketing in Oakland, CA

I have been working at Sungevity as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

* Nice location in hip Oakland. Beautiful places to take your lunch break right outside the office.
* Good purpose to the company. You're selling something people want
* Promising industry, will only get bigger

Cons

* Lowest glass ceiling around. Women hired for their experience and skills, then fired for the same things. Yes, you will even be told to smile more.
* Weird financing cycle which yields mass layoffs followed by hiring binges. Very demoralizing.
* Employees set against one another, no teamwork. Promotions and recruiting seem based on who you know socially. Experienced employees forced out so they can replaced by "fresher" ones.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop lying. You've hired smart people who've figured out what you're up to.

    I worked at Sungevity full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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