I have been working at SolarCity as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Innovative and transparent company whose upper crust still values employees at all levels. There is so much room to grow in this company, and many positions are only monetarily inhibited by one’s output.

Cons

Just growing pains that any start-up type of a company faces.

Advice to Management

Grow with a balanced approach - fast growth can destroy a copy if it's not evenly balanced.

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

    Pros

    I stay with this company not for the pay but because it offers the public a way out of the utility monopoly with clean renewable evergy.

    Cons

    There is alot of secretism that occurs in all aspects of the comany whether it's pay, changes in the field of position but worst of all since the co. went public they are cutting employees pay left and right.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your skilled employees right and they'll only grow with you for a lifetime.

    Pros

    Growing company in a green industry, great for the planet, until you get inside and learn about the underbelly.

    Cons

    The unwritten business model of SolarCity is to hire as many sales people as possible, get their sales in the pipeline, fire them, then steal their commissions. Commissions are paid: 50% on sale, 25% at day 45, then 25% after install, which takes an intentionally delayed 4 to 6 months. If you leave the company, go on maternity or medical leave, or are fired, ***you lose all commissions beyond the current 30 day pay period in which you quit or were fired***. This means you will lose 50% of your earnings when you leave. This is the subject of a current class action lawsuit.

    Advice to Management

    Highly unethical compensation practices.
