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

    Pros

    The boss (Charlie) is very supportive and always willing to help you with anything that needs to be done or looked into. Will assist you with problems and road blocks that you encounter without hesitation. I have never worked in such a positive environment in my 30 years of work experience before and loved it all the way up to the point of layoff (for lack of work). If you ever get the chance to work under Charlie i'm sure that you will have the same sentiments that i've shared here in this review. There is another boss that I will recognize in this review too and his name is Nick. He was my direct supervisor and he too was very supportive and always willing to help. Again my experience with these two bosses was GREAT!

    Cons

    Industry changes has made my position with the company expendable. No cons against this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

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

    Pros

    Can work from home or set my own hours. I was issued a laptop, dual monitors, iPhone, and a sit/stand desk.

    Cons

    Sunrun is growing so fast it's hard to maintain quality. It's harder and harder to meet goals and make customers happy.
