What are perks and other benefits like at Everlight Solar?

Pros

There are definitely some great individuals on the team, and I appreciate their effort to hire people with little to no experience.

Cons

Well, to name a few: horrible pay, no benefits, blatant racism, disorganized structure, and frequent lying to staff and customers. I felt sick to my stomach helping this start-up take advantage of customers (who can get a better deal with just about any other solar company) and their highly loyal employees (who are likely being brainwashed). Needless to say, I left after a few months and have zero regrets.

Does Everlight Solar offer vision insurance?

Pros

Awesome culture of growth and meritocracy - Lot's of opportunities to shine and grow your income. My favorite thing is that Everlight invests itself and it's people constantly - every year is much better than the last - the training, the conferences, and if you're on location you can go to one of the warehouses with an awesome space to hang out, get free drinks and NBA level basketball court. The best thing is probably just being a part of a team that kicks solid butt, TBH. Hard to find a place that does what it claims it does.

Cons

Not for you if you're looking to cruise and chill at work instead of trying to achieve and do the best work of your life. Flexibility is definitely required - either its fun for you to be a part of building the rocket and riding it every day or you should take a slow-paced job where there you don't feel challenged to level yourself up every month. It's not the place for you if you don't want coaching and bosses that let you know how well you are really doing.

Advice to Management

Keep living by the Values and only moving people into leadership who have earned it and who rock those values as well as you guys do!

How are career development opportunities at Everlight Solar?

Pros

I met some amazing people at Everlight. They are very selective of who they hire, which makes for a group of like-minded individuals that are incredibly easy to get along with!

Cons

As another review stated, every remote position is hired as 1099 (self-employed), which is very unfavorable compared to a W2. Management will paint this in a great light, saying that you can write off your work-related expenses and encourage you to go buy a new Macbook or iPad to write it off. This would be great if you made more than the bare minimum to survive! Everlight loves workaholics who have no work-life balance but won’t pay you accordingly. Don't forget that you'll end up having to pay 30% of your salary in self-employment taxes anyway. Everlight also puts the sales staff on a pedestal. The sales team makes way more money than anyone else—more than the people who support sales or those who recruit and hire the sales staff. It’s kind of a slap in the face when you see the sales team getting lots of incentives when everyone else is barely making enough to put food on the table. I also ended up with a lot of responsibilities that were not on my job description nor on my desired career path. They take advantage of young professionals and will only hire you if they think you are likely to say "yes" to everything. I will say that after about 7 months of working at Everlight, I was able to move away from those responsibilities and focus more on projects that I was passionate about, but ultimately that like I would be happier at another company.

Advice to Management

Treat your sales-supporting staff better, they do more for the company than they get recognized for! Also, give clearer expectations to recruits and new hires on what their job duties will entail. This sets up your employees to be disappointed and unfulfilled in their roles.
