    I have been working at RGS Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One of only a few public solar companies. Corporate structure is helpful in navigating a complicated solar landscape.

    Cons

    Corporate structure sometimes drags out the customer experience. Multiple departments contacting the customer sometimes overwhelms the customer.

    Advice to Management

    More direct support to sales stuff from marketing department would help with lead generation and ultimately reduce employee turnover and increase sales success.

    I have been working at RGS Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has a great story, its 35 years in the solar industry and the fact that its part of Giam and its been around selling stuff to people who care about the world and global warming and all that lovely heart warming stuff.

    Cons

    There is NO structure, none at all. Its a constant shift and move leaving in its wake many customers who are confused at the process or feel that they are not being taken care of. There are too many people who are not buying into the system of selling energy, they are stuck thinking that what they are doing is selling solar systems and not the energy that the system creates. Management is a waste who does not answer their phone or return emails on vital projects that have been sold! I am ashamed of the treatment that some of my customers get, I am ashamed that no one seems to care about what is happening to an individual customer.

    Advice to Management

    Care, Just care about about your employees and develop a proper procedure as well as an environment where people believe in what we in this industry are doing. we are selling power to people, not the systems, the systems are a not what we are selling, they are what creates the power that will power america if we can get this thing going off the ground.
    once you have the right culture, then train people on that culture and make sure that it is constantly elaborated on and there is a good understanding why we are doing what we are doing.
     I think many of us are at this company because we believe in green energy, we believe that the sun can generate enough power to meet our demands as a nation, but if your people are not simplifying this process, then there is no way that we can go out and sell the wold on what we can do if half the people at the company don't believe or understand what we are doing.
    Culture change, the company needs a culture change desperately.
