    I have been working at Solarcentury full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Jeremy and Frans have led the company, inspiring the staff.
    Making a difference to climate change cause with every project we build.
    Opportunities are there for self development and improvement, if you seek them.
    Flexible working, and people don't take the mick as they're all so motivated.

    Cons

    Pay isn't amazing, but everything else makes up for it.
    Training/career progression may not come to you, but if you look for opportunities you're always encouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Hang onto the good guys, the experienced ones, even if they don't shout - proactively look after them otherwise you'll lose them. They're the core of SC's success. Ultimately people need salary progression, that is FAIR within the company and outside.
    Otherwise, keep up the good work!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Solarcentury (London, England) in February 2019.

    Interview

    The role was reviewed after my application, but I was still considered for the role.

    Things seem to be going well until the final stage interview. Response was delayed twice, and the second time it was clear they were waiting for another candidate to accept.

    My rejection email was sent last thing on a Friday evening with a feedback that contradicted the response I got during my face to face interview.

    A few weeks after, the role became available again.
