Doing Good and Doing Well

Sales Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Verengo Solar full-time for less than a year

ProsOpen minded, forward thinking, engaging and fun culture. Keeps you on your tip toes and challenges you to grow personally and professionally! I love the TRUSTED values and how everyone stands behind them. Feels like everyone is in it together and treats one another like family. The start up feel is still there and its both challenging and exciting.

Consthis is not a job for someone who is not not driven, self motivated, hard working, focused professional. no sitting behind the desk here. everything is moving, changing, evolving. its positively unpredictable and unpredictably positive. if you want to just push the pencil and collect a weekly paycheck, better go elsewhere ;)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I am a happy "Verengonian" !!

TSR - Telephone Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ (US)

I have been working at Verengo Solar full-time for more than a year

ProsI have been working for Verengo Solar for over a year. For the most part, I love my job. The overall environment in the office is upbeat and positive. My coworkers are by far the best part of this job! I love all of the "Verengonians" - they truly make this company the best place to work. I am happy that Verengo is growing so quickly, and I am proud to be a part of this expansion. I know there will be many, many opportunities for me to grow with this company and move into other job positions. I am excited for my future with Verengo. Some "pros" of working at Verengo solar: great coworkers, upper management who cares about you as a person and employee, your opinions are heard, competitive pay, full benefits (health, vision, dental, PTO, short term disability, etc),

ConsBecause Verengo is growing so quickly, we are always changing policies and procedures in the office. You have to keep up with all the changes to ensure that you are doing your job correctly. Sometimes, I believe that we roll out changes without first working out the "kinks" and imperfections. Change is good, and being dynamic is absolutely necessary at Verengo Solar. My recommendation to improve this would be to slow down the implementation of changes. If we spend a little more time up front making these changes "perfect," it will be easier to implement them.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy suggestion to improve the sales department is to create a culture of inclusion, rather than exclusion. Being a sales department, everything is very competitive and there is a high value placed on "being the best." Unfortunately, some employees cut corners to climb to the top, and they are rewarded for this. I believe it would be a better strategy to focus on quality, rather than quantity.

Facilities Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Verengo Solar full-time for more than a year

ProsVerengo offers a family-like atmosphere and treat everyone equally. The offer comprehensive salary packages and gives employees the ability to advance and develop new and exciting skills. They offer management programs and training and develop employees within.

ConsNo cons to speak of. Verengo is everything that a person would want in an employer.

I have been working at Verengo Solar full-time for more than 5 years

ProsI have worked here for more than fours years. I really like the start-up fast-paced environment, drive and embrace changes and had great opportunities to directly work with senior executives over the past four years.

Great place to work!

Finance (Current Employee)
Torrance, CA (US)

I have been working at Verengo Solar full-time for more than a year

ProsVerengo employs extremely talented individuals, who really live the company values, which are Trust, Responsibility, Uncompromising, Smart, Team, Enthusiastic & Dynamic ("TRUSTED"). I'm very proud to be part of a company that is focused on making a positive difference.

ConsThere's never a dull day at Verengo! With such rapid growth, one must be ok with changing priorities and demands, which is good news for folks that thrive in such circumstances.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue with your on-going commitment to process and system improvements that will sustain and promote the growth that created the company we are today.

My experience with verengo has been that it is the greatest place on earth to work. It is in growth mode and it is fun.

TSR (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ (US)

I have been working at Verengo Solar full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe ability to be flexible with scheduling and that hours can be made up when missed. There is constant opportunity for upward mobility. Because of our constant growth management positions open up all the time. You have the ability to make as much money as you want with unlimited commissions, We are treated as one big family.

ConsThe toughest part is not having a permanent schedule the schedule can change every three weeks and policy changes are sometimes tough to keep up with. And the fact that commission structure changes so frequently it seems if we do to well as a group management feels we are making too much money and will change commission structure.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would try working on communication of changes on a more universal level rather than individuals.
Sometimes even management is not exactly on current policies after back and forth changes
