    I have been working at Vivint Solar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Vivint Solar can be a great place if you are willing to work hard and put in the effort. Lots of opportunities to grow your career and be able to learn a lot of useful skills.

    Cons

    Many of the operations departments are silo-ed and fragmented. This can cause friction and doesn't lead to a "one team" mentality. Lack of communication can also be a big problem as many times departments don't realize the impact that their changes are making on other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the quarterly CEO meetings. They are a great way to help employees feel engaged in the short and long term goals for the company.

    I have been working at Vivint Solar full-time

    Pros

    i have now been with the company for over three years. I have never had more money in my savings account and so little debt. Every year I have been here I have made at least 40% more than the year before.

    Cons

    Need self discipline and thick skin. Some of the software used is a little glitchy.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to sales team.

    Pros

    In the sales org there is unlimited income and upward mobility opportunity. The leadership team is committed to training new hires and even have an incentive cruise for any new hire that completes a minimal sales standard within the first 60 days. In 2018 we took 65 new sales rep to Cuba for simply completing their training. And another 90 reps to Mexico for doing the same on the west coast.

    The average first year sales rep makes more than $70,000 annually, and we don’t have a manager making less than $150, but most easily clear $200, $300 & even up to $700,000.

    Cons

    This job is hard. Mentally and sometimes physically. It requires you to leave your ego home and be willing to grind everyday. Unfortunately that mentally doesn’t fit everyone and so we do cut reps that can’t hack it.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    VIVINT solar has figured out what it takes to be the top company in such a booming industry! They Cater to the sales force and have created an elite work environment, culture, and brand. The leadership and senior management are some of the best people I have come across in my life and the most respectful. When I analyze what I am most grateful for at VIVINT solar, it is always the knowledge I have been able to learn while working here. Truly a blessing for me and my family!

    Cons

    Will take a ton of dedication and comitment! But I guess that’s with anything rewarding in life :)

    Pros

    Amazing work environment, everyone is very energetic about what we do, excited and positive. I’ve never been surrounded by so many people who are striving to better themselves and help build up each other around them. I’ve grown so much since working here, made more money than ever before, have built life long friendships and couldn’t be happier in my personal and work life.

    Cons

    They don’t micromanage you so for some people that makes it hard for them to be successful, they need the constant nagging to get stuff done.

    I have been working at Vivint Solar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It’s a great place to work. I had a previous job where I did well but there was no room for growth or development. Since coming to Vivint in 2015 my whole life has changed for the better. They develop you as a salesperson as an individual. It is a lot of challenging work but greatly rewarding and satisfying.

    Cons

    To do good here you need to do not only learn sales skills but also learn everything about solar and the process. You need to be a self starter and someone who can be teachable and eager to learn and do better.
