I worked at SolarCity

Pros

Amazing people and culture Great leadership

Cons

Keep your values Retain your top talent

Current Employee - Senior Sales Analyst

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

Pros

Really excellent people, fantastic ambitious objective to power the world with sunshine, genuine mission driven ethos. An amazing place to work for a while there.

Cons

Absolute sh*t show, never profitable, always begging for the next round of financing, bankruptcy, private equity, cluster f&ck. We started naming the layoffs. SFUNset, Blackhole SFUN, SFUNger... Games, etc.

Advice to Management

Well, its too late now, but for starters it would be great to craft a sustainable business model where you actually make more money than you spend operating the company. Like, pretty basic stuff.
