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

    Pros

    Have a fair amount of freedom working from home mostly and on the road. Sales people have a great story to tell about the tenure and history of the company in the market. They do carry good products usually. The installation teams do really good work. My boss is cool. They are learning to use some pretty cool technology tools. Have a huge range of financial strategic partners.

    Cons

    Pretty much nothing was like what I was told coming in to this company. Failed delivery of many components for success. Training was pretty inadequate, but they are trying. Very little support. The work tool technology was not supported - no IT dept. or at least one that will talk to you apparently. So had to spend a lot of time troubleshooting those issues on my own. Policy and strategy is a moving target. Damn near impossible to get a straight answer on anything. upper management very disconnected from the troops on the ground (typical) but are starting to figure out what works in one region does not necessarily work in another. Bottom Line: we are told that this is a pioneer company in the solar industry with long stable history - but everyone is new - so how does that work? Where is the "institutional knowledge?" Floundering.

    Advice to Management

    Get more consistent on policy and strategy. understand regions have different needs and customer bases are different. focus more on how to support the revenue generators for the company and less on (failed) branding, mergers and acquisition, adding yet another in a host of financial partners - get control of - or have some marketing - know one knows who the hell we are. And get control of Lead Generation - you need to bring that in house and not rely on third rate, third party companies for Leads.
