      Neutral Outlook
      No Opinion of CEO

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

      Pros

      Access to rooftops and good views.

      Cons

      Anything less than a 12 hr day was a non-option. More hours were allowed, but considering that driving back is part of the job, its a wonder that more accidents didn't happen due to fatigue.

      Advice to Management

      Allow the option of a 10 hr daily cap. Don't structure the company for employee burnout and high turnover.
