    I have been working at SolarCity full-time

    Pros

    The company is great. There is huge potential to move up, where you quickly make very good money, the commissions and base salary are fair, and the CEO is literally the guy who is going to take us to Mars one day

    Cons

    The entry level position can be really grueling sometimes. You are talking to 150 people a day about solar energy, and 96% of them will tell you some version of no. An ego is going to drive you at first, but the no's will wear you down. You need to be emotionally stable and able to take rejection if you go for this job.

    Advice to Management

    None really. They do a great job inspiring you and keeping you going. It's a great company!
