    I have been working at Vivint Solar part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My experience working at Vivint Solar has been very positive. I have had flexible hours, relaxed environment, rewarding work, and meal tickets. I have gotten consistent raises after working hard.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be a little boring because I am doing the same thing over and over (CAD designs) but it isn't that bad.

    Pros

    The culture at Vivint Solar is solely the best reason to work for the company. Family always comes first, working and staying happy is all part of what the company is about. Being that we are solar company and save customers money is even cooler! Being part of a movement of changing the way the world consumes energy for cheaper and cleaner. The fast pace of the company's growth is very appealing, promotion opportunity is always around.

    Cons

    The growth of the company means we are always changing at a very fast pace. Sometimes that means we have to constantly adjust to change. Its something you have to learn to love.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up everything you're doing. This is a great company!

    Evaluate top performer's salaries to ensure they are paid fairly.

    Pros

    Lenient work environment. Hours, PTO

    Cons

    A lot of the upper management are young and under qualified. Things get overlooked, changes aren't taught correctly and once you get use to a process it changes again. Not all perks are available to ALL employees. Depends on your title you get more, which everything should be equal. Immature staff and premature corporate decisions

    Advice to Management

    Reorganize and restructure. Look at your dying offices and cities. Train your sales staff better, Google all Vivint Solar reviews, they are customer complaints pointed at Sales. While sales brings in the money, keeping a good name with your customers before and after installation should be #1. Instead of making your quarterlies competitive and killing morale... Praise the offices that hit their goals and HELP the offices that aren't. Your OM's are getting paid 8 hour days for 2 hour days of real work.

    Pros

    great potential to grow within the company, the harder you work the more you can earn. the best learning experience for professional sales.

    Cons

    the company needs to speed up the installation process, pay is 100% commission, the companies growing pains push back your installation dates and it leave a lot of time for the customer to wait on a system and a long time to wait until you get paid on the job.

    Advice to Management

    Theres no problems with management, its all CAD designers getting swamped with sales, the managers teach you how to sell really well, the company needs to grow operations accordingly to the massive amounts of sales coming in

    I worked at Vivint Solar full-time

    Pros

    Growing company, solid business plan for growth

    Cons

    No training, no reviews, no help in field. past performance means nothing, multi year reps with proven track record still have to hit weekly minimums for leads or they don't get paid anything for their work. Growing too fast and hiring salesmen as DOs of offices that have no idea how to manage and work with people. They are great salesman, completely different skill set. After sale is made, customer service is terrible and that falls on the sales mgr to clear up any issues rather than be out there selling.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down. Give people enough time, or have DOs accountable for multiple hires who fail.mthey are not managing. Also, your DO should not be your top sales person in the office. Too many reasons to mention all, but does not bode well for a happy, cohesive group of employees.
