    I worked at Solatube as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time here. The coworkers were great to be around for a typical office job. The management offered a casual atmosphere as long as you get your job done.

    Cons

    Not too many cons. Some people worked long hours that seemed stressful when it came close to deadlines so that could be an issue for some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I thought the management did a overall good job. Most of them were very positive and enjoyable working with when everything was going well.

    I have been working at Solatube

    Pros

    I like coming to work every day. We manufacture a product that I am proud of: we bring sunshine to people at home and work. There is a strong camaraderie among staff and across departments. No backbiting at Solatube. Great 401k benefits and insurance.

    Cons

    Average paid time off, holidays, and salaries. As a growing company, we are pressed for resources, which means everyone must work hard and then some.

    I have been working at Solatube full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about this company is that they were closed on weekends. If not I am sure they would have you working 7 days a week.

    Cons

    Major issues with management. Lack of leadership and employee recognition. High stress environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the people and you will be successful.

    I have been working at Solatube full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company is growing and we have opportunities to join other departments. Benefits are great including 401K match of 4%. The product is awesome and the new products look great as well. My department is great and everyone usually helps.

    Cons

    We could use bi annual performance reviews. We could also use a 4 day workweek that would help with my commute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the monthly meetings on informing everyone on the company events.

    I have been working at Solatube full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you cant find work anywhere else this place is for you.
    Decent benefits.
    Good location.
    Good place to work if you are in and out in a few years or need something temporary.

    Cons

    Owners micro manage every single department. Treat people like garbage.
    Nepotism by owners and management.
    Executive management follows the owners management style. No thank you or you did a good job.
    Extremely high turn over.
    A President that should have been let go a long time ago.
    Loyalty to the employees... Forget it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the people you hire do their job.
    Learn to appreciate your employees.
    Get rid of the obvious issue. (President)
