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

        Pros

        I don’t believe there are pros to working for SolarCity.

        Cons

        Over worked and under paid. No integrity between company and customers/employees.

        Respect, communication and integrity goes a lot further than just owning a company.

        Once the company merged with Tesla, the Roseville location was closed and moved to Las Vegas; eliminating 150+ jobs.
