    I have been working at Sunrun full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Overall, a good company to work for if you are single and without personal obligations.

    Cons

    Major micro management in the sales field. They tell you it's your business, run it. What they don't tell you is that almost every freaking day you have several calls you have to be on. To be really successful you will not have a life outside of the company. Sales consultants are salaried and expected to work from 8 am to 8 pm 5-6 days a week. You are expected to record your calls, go through countless role playing meetings and still have time for your business and personal life.
