    Pros

    Good bonus structure. Everyone you work with is close and looks out for one another. It felt like family. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    In the last four years the company steadily declined. There was never a clear process on workflows and things were always constantly changing. Eventually the company tanked.

    Pros

    The opportunity to make money was great. Also the opportunity to start with a company on the bottom floor.

    Cons

    Server sr. Level changes made is hard to get any traction. To many hands in pot so to speak

    Advice to Management

    Keep with an idea or direction and allow the data to tell you if it works. Don't be so quick to pivot to something else because you don't have instant success

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

    Pros

    Good people working there, good company to start a new career as electrician or installer. All the chief command is very mellow. they let you work, no pressure. You can mess it up and they will be patient with you. The environment is good.

    Cons

    low pay, there is not raise at all. you can work 6 month or 3 years and there is not raise. These company is always experiencing cost problems. they never found out how to make business without losing tons of money so finally employees pay the cost. they went bankruptcy and another company will absorb part of the company. so maybe they will be better.

    Advice to Management

    Schedule installs and services close to the employee. you try to save money cutting here and there but you spend it all in gas. You cross employees driving everywhere. People in Arizona don't Care about driving. In special Manda from Arizona.

    I worked at Verengo Solar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy-going environment, not micro-managed, pay was decent

    Cons

    Lack of communication/direction, constant lay-offs with NO notice, lies and cover-ups from CEO and upper leaders, not a fun culture like it used to be at all

    Advice to Management

    Company changed direction to not being a "sales" company anymore to just doing installations which probably fits their skillset the best but obviously they screwed over lots of people to get there when they claimed it wouldn't happen. Never set realistic expectations and always asked for the impossible regardless of reality. Try just being decent human beings and be upfront with your staff when crap is going to go down so you don't mess up peoples lives who were loyal to and stuck through all it all to the end.
