    Pros

    Best training bar none. They call their 3 week training program "Solar Boot Camp" for a good reason. It's intense, day and night. But if you make it through you are ready to suceed from day one on your own. This is a hard working company but the atmosphere is fun loving.

    Cons

    Did I mention that Boot Camp is intense?

    Advice to Management

    Everyone I encountered in my brief time with the company was top shelf. But from a salesmans point of view I would suggest just one change: Don't ask your sales staff to engineer the job during the presentation. That's not what they do best. Pre-engineer the project and give the salesperson a complete proposal to go into the home with and let them just simply sell the job.

    Pros

    The opportunity to make money was great. Also the opportunity to start with a company on the bottom floor.

    Server sr. Level changes made is hard to get any traction. To many hands in pot so to speak

    Advice to Management

    Keep with an idea or direction and allow the data to tell you if it works. Don't be so quick to pivot to something else because you don't have instant success

    Pros

    Good people working there, good company to start a new career as electrician or installer. All the chief command is very mellow. they let you work, no pressure. You can mess it up and they will be patient with you. The environment is good.

    Cons

    low pay, there is not raise at all. you can work 6 month or 3 years and there is not raise. These company is always experiencing cost problems. they never found out how to make business without losing tons of money so finally employees pay the cost. they went bankruptcy and another company will absorb part of the company. so maybe they will be better.

    Advice to Management

    Schedule installs and services close to the employee. you try to save money cutting here and there but you spend it all in gas. You cross employees driving everywhere. People in Arizona don't Care about driving. In special Manda from Arizona.
