I worked at Sungevity full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Many talented and motivated folks working at the ground floor of the company.
Well-organized software engineering team executing great products with a cool vision.
The customers are really amazing people.
Exposure to Sfuncube businesses is a great bonus.
Offices are well appointed and located in Jack London Square with nice restaurants, activities, and estuary-side walking trail.

Cons

Little if no opportunity for advancement.
No clear career paths.
Many of the mid-level managers are inexperienced about what management is and thus don't help their reports with career planning.
Challenging to achieve sponsorship in senior management to get opportunities to grow.
Hard on aspirational female employees; many left not finding advancement opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

*You really need someone at the VP level with construction/engineering/code experience, especially in solar, to round out the viewpoints/expertise in your team.
*Please spend more time engaging the analysts to work together to bring data to the table to help move the company forward in a scientifically responsible way.
*Realize that design is the product of solar. Focus on getting design right and having it inform everything else in the customer experience and you'll fix a lot of the issues that plague operations.
*Break down the boy's club.

    Pros

    Colleagues are always positive! Great founders, with a great story, and a great team to support the cause!

    Cons

    No cons! Literally, not one yet. Maybe just that Jack London Square is 3,000 miles away from New Jersey?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice, I think these guys have it figured out. I'm extremely blessed to be apart of this company.
