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

    Pros

    Good pay, affordable benefits, flexible schedule. Opportunities for advancement are present, but expectations are high.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from higher ups cause CAMs to be stressed and it affects team members. Commission requirements improved, but should be more comprehensive.

    Advice to Management

    Calm the rigidity! Let FESes do their own thing and trust them to do the job.

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

    Pros

    Working for SolarCity so far has been a terrific experience! I would say the best Pros for the company is the management. I have a awesome manager who truly does care about his team. Secondly, they give you the best available training to help you succeed in the field, and if you ever need help, their is always someone to help you out. They also give you the opportunity to grow with the company to different departments.

    Cons

    I would say the only Con for the job is not having weekends off.
