I worked at Sungevity full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Good training on the solar industry and technology before starting work. Very friendly and fun environment. Didn't dread going to work every day.

Cons

Sometimes unclear on what direction the company was going. Sales positions can be taxing, but they did everything they could to make it a positive environment rather than draining, cut throat one.

    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.
