    I worked at SolarCity full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Contest that were fun. My team was like a family.

    Cons

    Constant change, that is why it was called the solar roller coaster.

    Advice to Management

    Most managers were awesome. A few hardly ever worked or came into stores

    I worked at SolarCity for more than a year

    Pros

    Paid really well and if you are self motivated to get closed deals you can make really good money.

    Cons

    Self motivation is very necessary. This job is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make sure employees don't talk crap on the company because its really discouraging as a new hire.

    I worked at SolarCity for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay for relatively easy work benefits co workers tend to be like minded people. Super lax work environment

    Cons

    Stressful at times Standing and Smiling all day mentally exhausting Sometimes I WANTED my manager to be there to help me out but he was always busy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pitting you team against each other. I don't care that Jose got 3 times the amount of opps I got last week. Create an environment where team work is encouraged and rewarded.

    I worked at SolarCity full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Full time with benefits and 401k

    Cons

    I was a former SolarCity employee for over 3 Years as an FES. I watched as SolarCity Continued to fire every month over 60% of its salesforce which created individulally over 200,000 dollars in revenue a month while an abundance of managers that did absoulutely nothing but just walked into Home Depots and spied on their employees.As the company every year diminished the FEC and FEC compensation to Next to nothing,You...

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

    Pros

    Fun and friendly experience decent pay with great health benefits. They usually respond to questions and relaxed work environment. Great pay at first...

    Cons

    No room for improvement. Even when you excel at your position they will promise you a promotion and never follow through on it. They will tell you to get more opps then complain when they aren't great. Very mixed signals from management that can not relate to the position due to being hired from the outside. Overall it's a good job but don't expect to be promoted. Also expect to be told to do different things from different...

    I have been working at SolarCity

    Pros

    Great pay. Requires tenacity and drive.

    Cons

    Still too new of a company. Lots of bumps and HR discrepancies. Not as professional as it should be. I've worked there a few weeks and theres been a meeting on my day off almost each week. Work life balance seems to be promoted but it falls short soon after the start of your role.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone who's done the job before.

    Pros

    I honestly love this company. They truly care about you as an individual and want you to succeed in the company. I have never worked for a company that has treated you well and actually shows it to you. I Can really see myself in this company for many years to come!!!! What I love most about this job is that we are not selling a luxury product but rather a necessity for cleaner energy!!!!

    Cons

    No cons, everything I do I love about this job!!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    All I can say is "Management keep on doing what you are doing" !!!!!
