I worked at Sunrun as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

friendly people, great location, good product

Cons

none that I can think, but I had a temporary intern position so I did not really get a long term feel the company

Advice to Management

as always, stay grounded with your employees

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

    Pros

    Sunrun's goals are unusually bold, even for a Silicon Valley tech startup: Sunrun is re-inventing a fundamental consumer experience (residential electric service) and thereby bringing competition to an industry that previously has had none.

    With goals this big (creating not only a product, but a new product category and a new market), there is a ton of meaningful work to do at the company. Every department, from accounting to engineering, is pushing on the boundaries of their respective fields. In fact, there is more work at Sunrun than there are people to do it.

    For an employee, this means 1) opportunity for learning and career advancement, 2) a culture that values judgement, particularly when setting priorities, 3) a meritocracy that rewards employees who get stuff done and 4) a work environment where your fellow employees are genuinely excited because they are working on meaningful problems.

    Cons

    Sunrun is a small company with huge goals and challenges. Unsurprisingly, this means that many things at the company are in flux.

    If you are the type that wants to grab an undefined project or process and solve it, you will do well. If you are the type that needs pre-existing structure and processes to succeed, you could struggle in the fast-paced startup environment at the company.

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

    Pros

    For a company of Sunrun's size the amount of development and opportunity that is presented to employees is amazing. The workforce is intelligent, committed and driven to make a difference in the world and to be part of a disruptive company and industry. The vibe from the team that this is their opportunity to work for potentially one of the greatest companies in our generation is contagious.
    People work hard and play hard and if you are performing, leadership recognizes, rewards and provides flexibility to drive the appropriate balance in ones life.

    Cons

    Like any fast growing company, there is a lot going on. Change happens all the time, in both people, processes and priorities... but then again when have you seen a successful company growing as fast as Sunrun has (3,500%) in the last 5 years that does not go through change. Change can be hard, but also creates opportunities for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Over-Communicate. The why change is happening is not always clear.
