What is health insurance like at Vivint Solar?

Pros

Flexible schedule, lower management in my department is excellent

Cons

Lower than average pay, awful medical insurance, no annual reviews/raises, maternity leave is completely unpaid, PTO never increases no matter how many years you are with the company.

Advice to Management

Please offer raises and paid maternity leave. The "free lunch" is terrible food and I would rather keep the twelve dollars that it takes from my paycheck and maybe make a little more per hour instead.

Does Vivint Solar offer unlimited holiday?

Pros

If you have a good supervisor, you can be insulated from some of the BS. Unlimited PTO is nice - if you can get it approved Depending on your supervisor, there is quite a bit of flexibility for working from home

Cons

IT leadership, starting from the CTO. A direct quote from the CTO when my manager was relaying a complaint about the overhead lights: "they can just wear shades!" Since I already wear prescription glasses, and their benefits plan only covers a single pair... how exactly am I supposed to pay for those? You also never know if your project is going to be cancelled. I went from "you are doing a great job, management is 100% behind this project!" To "your project is being mothballed, but everyone on your project will be moved to other projects, nobody is losing their job" to laid off (along with dozens of others...) in under 2 weeks.

Advice to Management

Fix IT management before you lose all your quality employees
