    I worked at Sunrun full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I worked at Sunrun for a long time; longer than most people. Overall, I had a great experience with the company and the pros far outweighed the cons: - Good leadership - Great advancement opportunities - Good compensation (while this was my personal experience, I had many friends within the company who strongly disagreed with their compensation). - Good benefits - Awesome co-workers - Convenient office location - Good company culture

    Cons

    - Work/life balance: I often felt overworked and in high-stress situations. - Poor management in other departments - High turnover across the company - Low morale in other teams/departments

    I worked at Sunrun full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good work life balance, friendly and smart people, flexibility, decent pay compared with similar roles

    Top-down management lacks altruistic vision and empathy. As a publicly traded company there's a lot of scrutiny and cost cutting measures that affect employees negatively.
