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

Pros

It's great to work for a company that is helping the world. Things are always changing here, working to be more efficient and everybody is working towards making clean energy the no-brain solution for homeowners and businesses. It's nice to come into work each morning knowing you are doing something great.

Cons

Everybody seems to always be inundated with work. Most people seem happy to put in long hours because they believe in the purpose of the company but yeah often times people seem to be overworked.

Advice to Management

It would be nice if there was more emphasis placed on employee development. Tuition reimbursement would be nice.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at SolarCity full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Effective teamwork across all departments
    2. Friendly/active colleagues
    3. Innovative company - it was exciting to work for a company as it transitioned from start-up to IPO
    4. Fun holiday/anniversary parties
    5. Great learning experience

    Cons

    1.. Poor/Ineffective Management - directors/managers don't work with their employees to set them up for success; little to no performance feedback is provided outside of the annual review
    2. Low Salaries - compensation does not match the expectations for most roles and pay increases are very rare.
    3. High turnover rate - the company is quick to let employees go, rather than provide coaching
    4. Lack of Communication & Follow Through - in regards to bonuses, promotions, pay increases, and training opportunites, I developed an "I'll believe it when I see it" attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Send all directors/managers to Management Training that coaches them how to treat their employees and provide proper feedback/support.
