    I have been working at Vivint Solar full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of growth and leadership opportunities, it starts to feel like your coworkers are family, managers and supervisors WANT to see you grow

    Cons

    It can seem a little unorganized at times, mostly because we are always trying to refine processes.

    Pros

    Most flexible work schedule I’ve ever worked. Fat checks if you treat it like a 9-5.

    Cons

    Knocking on doors. That’s what you have to get over to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Less rah rah motivational meetings. More logical “how to” meetings.

    Pros

    The Operations Manager for Long Island is the best manager I've ever had. There was a lot of flexibility and independence in this position with no micromanaging. Everyone had a lot of fun most of the time.

    Cons

    There is no upward mobility. You have to deal with sales people constantly. They make ridiculous demands and act like they own the company. They are heavily favored by corporate.

    Pros

    Money. If you want to do well just become best friends with the Director and VPs.

    Cons

    All this company cares about is money and that’s about it. Company has a new pay scale that incentivized sales reps to take advantage of customers and overcharge them so they can make more money.

    Advice to Management

    Put your customers first and not your sales reps.

    Good Pay, good healthcare, 401k, Company parties, Training on Solar, Lots of OT, Take home truck, Easy Management, Gas Card, Reimbursement if you spend personal money,Cell phone, Clothes/Prizes/Spiffs, Company trips, gift cards, Per Diem/Travel. Always provided with everything you need to get a job done. Smoothest work systems make life easier. I'd definitely work here again without a doubt; company really cares about employees. Company always has incentives for installers/techs.

    Cons

    Lots of change to service department, Last minute accounts/homeowners to be handled, Squirrels, Angry Homeowners. iSova

    Advice to Management

    Always take advice from the people who aren't working at Utah. I.E. Take advice from Installers/Techs to make work environment better. The people in Utah don't know everything.
