    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    offered corporate housing for out of town employees. Gives employees Windows Surfaces to use with customers

    Cons

    failed to communicate with employees, DOES NOT PAY EMPLOYEES, worst customer relations, treats employees like disposable objects by hiring and firing monthly. I had a customer last week who had a solar installation and the installers screwed up the roof. The entire back porch caved in and rain water got into the home and started molding. It has been 2 weeks and this customer is livid. When I spoke to the CEO about it (Dave Anderson) he told me to not give her a time frame because we can get out of covering this for her. After that I had enough with this company and they can rot. DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY! It is ran by a bunch of ex MLM con men you sign people into terrible binding contracts where they overpay for sub par services.

    Advice to Management

    there is no management. All the managers that had any sense have left the company but for the ones left, please try and communicate with your employees and customers better.

    I have been working at Complete Solar full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Since i have been employed by Complete Solar, I have seen quite a few, notable, things. Any great company starts with, equally, great leadership at the top, and will have a natural, "trickle down effect." I have had the unique opportunity to have been employed by some great companies and visionaries in this space, i.e., SolarCity and Vivint Solar, and i can attest to the fact that even though this company may not be the largest in size, it more than makes up for this in vision, follow through, and integrity. I have read some of the more negative reviews and have to completely disagree with them. I have a number of years in the door-to-door market, and have seen just about everything you can imagine when it comes to sales trainings, management, ownership, and above all, integrity. This is an integrable company, hands down.

    There is never a way to please everyone, and anyone who is searching for complete satisfaction, need look no further, at any company, for that matter. They don't exist. Companies that give hand outs, in my experience, usually do not stand the test of time. It's naive to think this would even be possible, and borders on selfish. In all my experience, there are always those who chose to complain and add to the problems, rather that create solutions. It's unfortunate, but also necessary. Great leaders, and companies, know how to use any criticisms and turn them into strategic learning advantages. There have been plenty of mistakes made by a great number of excellent companies, out there. Good companies know there is always room for improvement. Complete is the EPITOME of that philosophy. They really do train and educate in the, "Complete" fashion, and it transcends throughout the company. I have learned a great deal, since i have been a part of this company, and i'm looking forward to learning a lot more.

    There is much room for improvement, and the fact that this company has its ear to its employees, makes them stand out, in an otherwise abundant field of employment opportunities, within this space.

    I feel its the next up and coming company to watch, and am honored to be a part of it.

    Lets keep changing the world, one roof top at a time!

    Cons

    I'd like to grow faster. The powers that be, are wiser than I.

    Advice to Management

    Lets keep moving forward. Nothing is going to stand in the way.

    I have been working at Complete Solar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The owners and executives of this company come from a variety of technical industries where they've become respected and proven figures in those previous fields. This creates an environment and culture that cannot be matched in the solar industry. With a proprietary software (Helioquote™), a solar rep can assess a homes needs, design the optimal solution for that homeowner and generate an agreement, all within a matter of minutes. Allowing for quicker processing for the consumer and quicker payment for the solar expert. As one of only a handful of Diamond Certified solar companies, customers (and solar experts alike) take solace in knowing they are dealing with (or working for) a respected and professional company.

    Cons

    Not much to say here, in any company were exponential growth occurs you will experience aches and pains along the way. As long as you put in the time (like anything in this world), you will have a company whose leaders along with proprietary softwares and training programs, will be there to enable you to be very successful, as we have seen with numerous solar experts.

    Advice to Management

    Communication leads to community.
