Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Flagship for nation's largest solar installer, perks (e.g. Ultrabook, smartphone, etc.), company services many regions across the U.S., medical benefits, dental and vision, support alternative energy, great position for income-driven individuals

Cons

Highly stressful work environment, meeting quotas may require 60+ hours a week (including weekends and holidays), closed deals dependent on sales consignment, commission payment takes up to 6 weeks to clear, low retention rate, growth opportunities direct only in sales and management

Advice to Management

Set better market metrics for advisor placement, create more structured scheduling for sales team, plan better team meetings, less micro-management, less emphasis on numbers and more on customer relationship
