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

Pros

Very laid-back environment, co-workers/employees are friendly, welcoming and always willing to help with whatever you may need help on. Benefits are awesome. Free-dress Friday. Benefits in the breakroom are AWESOME as well! Workflow is structured and easy to pick up on and do quickly once understood. Opportunities to move up in company a plus also.

Cons

I can't say there is much of a downside to working for this company although the basic 9-5 office job. Even then, the company seems to make this downside enjoyable and easy to overlook!

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

    Pros

    Lots of experience in the industry, brand awareness, partner with The Home Depot, have done big name projects and have big name partners.

    Cons

    Growing incredibly fast...right hand doesn't know what the left is doing, sales team has tripled this year and will double again very soon. Not many company generated leads or marketing, push to have sales reps do door-to-door lead generation. Sales managers try to help but have too many people to manage (for a company that is as fluid as this one is).

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

    Pros

    Young, fresh out of college employees with little to no experience, great first job with potential for growth.

    Cons

    Pays lowest 10th percentile in industry and Bay Area and this is coming from someone who worked closely with HR dept. Most roles start at $35-$40k and senior managers don't come close to 6 figure salaries. Does not retain employees as reflected in high turnaround rate.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are pushed to do more every quarter until they are worked to the bare bone and the company does not do enough to support work-life balance or ergonomics. The company does not employ admin assistants to help support staff. This would help with efficiency as employees can actually focus on their real work instead of piling on busy work.
