      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

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

      Pros

      Lots of schwag like free shirts and hats?

      Cons

      Nearly everything. Coworkers who put speed ahead of quality, careless and unsafe. Management in a constant state of panic because they do not know what they are doing.

      Advice to Management

      Hire people with expierence managing. The good old boy club isn't working.

          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.
