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

    Pros

    Big vision for making an impact

    Cons

    The main department leads were all vying for greater importance (Sales vs Marketing vs BD) and pointing fingers at other departments. This made for a poor unified effort when results failed to meet expectations.
