    Pros

    The event planning committee is always busy planning a party, potluck, fundraiser, etc. Greenspire has raised thousands of dollars over the years for a variety of important causes.
    There are also great opportunities for promotions. Employees are often recognized for a job well done, receiving awards, certificates, or gift cards.

    Cons

    Parking can be an issue at times, it is Santa Monica after all. However, there is parking available inside the building for a daily fee.

    Advice to Management

    I’d like to see more of an open door policy.

    Great for those self motivated and persistent, opportunities to advance, great income potential, company expanding territory and footprint

    Driving times, inconsistent routes, lack of detail

    Advice to Management

    Pay more to attention to what PFs will see in the market and the tools that are available now and not after that situation has passed

    Pros

    What I like most about the company is that if you choose to pursue other career goals and they don't pan out if in good standing with company you can come back to Greenspire.

    Cons

    Sometimes when you don't meet certain quotas there are some serious consequences such as loss of hours.

    Advice to Management

    Be very transparent about quotas and loss of hours with potential new hires.

    Pros

    When I first entered Greenspire, I started with the Inside Marketing Team. They trained me very well, so well that management took notice of my achievements and recommended me for a full-time position with the Operations team.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of anything.

    Pros

    I like the Industry they are in.

    Cons

    Upper Management do not appreciate their employees. Low pay. If you start working there you won’t last. Trust me. Stay Away.
    Nothing good will come from working here. Upper Management is impossible to get along with. They can’t retain employees. I recommend that you stay away from the company.

    Advice to Management

    There is no point giving any advice. Trust me: they won’t take it.

    Pros

    The team was really nice.

    Cons

    It is door to door sales. They try to disguise it, but it is definitely door to door and you are only paid if someone signs up for solar.
