    I have been working at Sunrun full-time

    Pros

    Unlimited time off, generous commissions and bonus structure.

Company car, with gas and insurance paid for. Able to use car to commute on vacation (not on company gas). Low stress management and encouraging environment. Fun, competitive culture with...

    I worked at Sunrun full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work as hard as you want. Strong sales support. Good team environment. Fantastic product. Leads provided as long as you complete some internal exams. pre-set appointments.

    Cons

    You have no control over certain things that can kill a deal. No matter how good of a sales person you are. You can go through the entire sales cycle and get the signature from the prospect to complete the deal and there will be things that you could not have know that will kill the deal. Confusing paperwork process that will kill a sale based on information you could never have known. Base salary is not even...

    Pros

    Compensation Potential. Bonuses, referrals, gas card company vehicles. Elite programs/Ski vacations/cruises COE. Open communication. Partnerships w/ Ambit, Comcast, and Costco, Amazon, Digital Channels, etc. make easy money. Referrals are easy if you are curious enough to learn how to make an impact. Promotions and Growth. Benefits. Per diem meals. Always something to do. Every hour is an adventure!

    Cons

    60hr plus work week, well, not really a Con if you are making money and love what your doing. But money is not everything. Many employees don’t know their full potential. Hypocrisy with the values is the biggest Con. (Pulse)This makes meetings loose value and work very difficult. Many in upper management were retained from REC days and they are archaic. Qualifications were not scrutinized the way they are today. They...

    Advice to Management

    Make efforts to retain top talent, WE will leave. Please draft a policy against rampant malignant cronyism. VPs and Directors: go on ride alongs and consultations. Spend less time on meetings and more time executing. CEO: trim the old ways and revolutionize the culture and remain curious, please do not loose touch. Sever ties with stagnant partners and renegotiate terms with those who have a predictably fortunate future....
