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

Pros

We are really, really making a difference and showing America that there really is a better way to get your energy! There is rapid growth, very upbeat, positive people throughout the company, who truly care about the environment and the company, and the company/employees are very customer focused!

Cons

Lots of nepotism, which isn't always a bad thing, but when it impedes recognition or promotions of deserving people, it creates a sticky environment. Pay is the same no matter where you live in the country, even though the cost of living is much higher in certain geographies.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the nepotism. There is even an HR person who handles part of his wife's territories!!
Also, pay should be associated with the cost of living in the geographical areas.

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

    Pros

    Coworkers were great and friendly.

    Cons

    Some managers/supervisors belittle their team and do not treat employees with respect/dignity. Asked to work during vacations and threatens termination for taking a vacation. Secretive about everything with no room for open communication. Quick to point fingers and nitpick. Not afraid to alienate certain people and make you feel like you should be grateful to even have a job there. Ignores requests for meetings and tells you they are too busy for you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging and start living up to your promises. Assess employees based on merit and not how much time they physically spend at work (some people are just online shopping while at work to rack up hours). Take an interest in your employees and understand that employees are people too.
