    Pros

    They have a great system for designing and delivering solar. Great exposure. I like the managment and co workers but I did not love the Upper managment

    Cons

    Too big to get noticed. You will get lost in the shuffle. Once you get hired the are very nice and accomondating. However after the first week, you are just a number

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of you employees ideas and create an open door policy. At first it seems like you already have an open door policy but free thinking is discoruaged.

    I have been working at SolarCity full-time

    Pros

    Great work environment, fun, exciting and good people, and promotes from within. Growing fast and is expected to go public soon.

    Cons

    Too much politics and micro management. Employees are promoted to be managers with no manager experience and no manager training. There is room for advancement but there are not very many options. There are a ton of entry level positions and management level positions but there are not many positions in between which makes it difficult to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out the politics, stop pointing figures and appreciate your employees.
