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

Pros

Few cool people work here

Cons

This place is horrible, bunch of liars. Management sucks, training was horrible... management isn't helpful at all. low play. Benefits sucks. everyone seemed to be fake, if you are not in clique with the managers and the little buddies of the manager you are completely out of place.

Advice to Management

management needs a lot of improvment

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

    Pros

    There is only one reason I would consider this position; helping people save on their electric bills. It is truly a gig where you can walk in to 3 family houses every day and honestly bless them financially.

    Cons

    Company is constantly redefining their metric for what they consider success for most positions. This is common for disruptive technologies and high growth companies. Unfortunately, it means that you will not have any job security for first five years. Everyone's head is always on the block.

    Advice to Management

    As you know, you have an amazing offering... However, you do not have an amazing marketing strategy. Instead of constantly threatening to lop off the heads of your sales teams (who really are on board with your vision), try to help them tell the story of how the average family can truly benefit by signing up. It is only natural for American's to be skeptical when they are offered something so beneficial with absolutely no upfront investment. Use that to our advantage... Uncommon value is your prison, uncommon marketing is your key.

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

    Pros

    Saving the world one roof at a time.

    Cons

    Door-to-door in the Arizona summer time is insane.

    Advice to Management

    Do not punish coworkers for helping you.
