I have been working at SolarCity full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I work with amazing people. Lots of potential for career growth for those who work hard, do well, and express an interest. It feels great to sell something that is changing the world and helping families. It's even better to do it at a company that is looking at the long term... not just the here and now.

Cons

Long hours, but fulfilling. If you're uncomfortable with "change," this may not be the company for you. If you embrace new ideas and ways of doing things, you may find a home at SolarCity.

Advice to Management

Keep the lines of communication open as we continue to grow.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Great co-workers. Great management. SolarCity is constantly growing, so there is tremendous room for growth.

    Cons

    I think the only con about the Field Energy Advisor position is the fact that we usually have to work the weekends.

    I worked at SolarCity full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are great and try to help eachother as much as possible.

    Cons

    Very low pay, They will inflate your potential earnings at your interview and they will change your commission structure and pay you less the longer you are there. They will set quota goals that are barely reachable and will put you on Probation (PIP) if your sales are low. Keep in mind as a marketing representative (field energy advisor) you will be held responsible if the sales people cannot close the opportunities (appointments you set) you give to them. You will see a higher turn over rate than your local fast food restaurant.

    Advice to Management

    BE HONEST with your employees. Offer to help them when they are struggling and take the time to meet with them in person to help. Have regular meetings where you offer training and help.
