    Pros

    Awesome time to be at a company like Vivint Solar and in an industry like Solar Energy! There's a lot of room for growth here. The company is expanding and good people are needed in every group. Lunch provided daily, game room, quiet rooms to decompress, onsite gym, and many other facility benefits. Good location right in between Salt Lake and Utah Counties and right off I-15. SOOO much variety in the day to day work. Something new to figure nearly every day.

    Cons

    While the company has been around for about 7 years, it's recently gone through a reset and feels like a startup. You need patience to work through new problems, as many things happen for the first time. You need to LOVE solving problems to thrive here.

    Pros

    + People are excited to improve processes and their skill sets.

    + "Get it done" culture. People here are very adaptive and driven towards self learning.

    + Depending on your position, unparalleled freedom to pursue changes you feel builds the company.

    + Leadership listens to ideas and promotes based on successful projects.

    +++ Every boss I have worked for has made family-work balance paramount. They really care about my success.

    + The top leadership cares deeply about our customers and it shows. They won't even entertain ideas that would hurt our reputation with customers and will even get visibly upset if you suggest such an idea.

    Cons

    - Employee workloads can swing wildly depending on your boss and team. The vast majority have shared with me equally positive experiences with balance but a few others I definitely feel are swamped/overworked.

    - If you are expecting to promote based on years working the same position it can be very frustrating. The avenues to standout feel limited for some entry level teams. Once past that level it gets exponentially easier to promote.

    - Cross team communication is getting better but sometimes you still find out you were working on a solution in parallel with another team and that one of the versions will end up being redundant.

    Advice to Management

    It's clear you are working hard to keep this company a great place to work. Perhaps we could do more to give entry level positions a clearly laid out route for promotion.
