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

    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

    Pros

    Good coworkers and some managers will listen and treat employees fairly

    Cons

    Upper management only cares about driving up monthly sales number so the company is an attractive package for investors to purchase

    Advice to Management

    Either run the company with care for your employees, products, and industry, or go to the financial industry if you want to run a financial company.

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

    Pros

    The management that I had experience with cared about me and did whatever they could to help me out. Room for growth within the company. If you prove your worth and work hard, they will treat you with loyalty and respect.

    Cons

    Lots of lay offs. Poor communication at times. Questionable honesty when it comes to what is going on behind closed doors.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communication to the employees, let them know what is really going on with the company and if their jobs are at risk. Allow them time to find another job before kicking them to the curb.
