    Entrepreneurial firm, but lacking internal structure and systems

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFast moving, entrepreneurial firm that moved into commercial, utility scale and residential solar systems. They grew very fast, expanding from 70 employees in the beginning of 2010 to over 240 by 2011.

    ConsMarket meltdown in NJ exposed some glaring weaknesses in cash flow management, costing, and HR policies. Widespread layoffs among both important and peripheral staff led to serious discontentment and the eventual firing of the CEO. Today it is run by financial folks and much of the upbeat spirit has been beaten out of them

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate better internal SOPs on sales methodology and financing capabilities.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Learned more about solar after leaving the comany, rather than staying in

    Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat installers - very humble and hard-working

    ConsPoor management - very sales driven but not quality driven

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat installers better and remove the apparent caste system in the organization

    Company is a complete mess

    Installer (Former Employee)
    Port Chester, NY

    Prosovertime. Field workers are easy to get along with.

    ConsCompany under bids on ALL of their projects which creates a ripple affect all the way down to drivers and installers. They look for ways to re-coop some of the money lost by way of letting go of installers and drivers. Upper management never takes pay cuts. Would prefer to fire you on spot than to provide you with constructive criticism. Pay sucks. Very disorganized company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRe-evaluate yourselves.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Installer

    Installer (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsPaid overtime. Other installers are easy to get a long with.

    ConsTreat you like crap. Upper management are degrading and disrespectful to all the installers. Want you to work in the sun all day with little to know breaks. Not worth the 15$ an hour.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYelling at your employees for taking water breaks in 95+ degree weather is not a bright idea.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
