Featured Review

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at SunEdison full-time

Pros

Great people, good office space.

Cons

Company is bankrupt, tough to see this happen.

Former Employee - Solar Performance Specialist

I worked at Vivint Solar full-time

Pros

It's easy to get a job here and it's a positive work environment.

Cons

It didn't feel like a honest company. They take short cuts to have more customers but not take good care of the customers there. Services would take forever and people would be stuck in the process... for a long time.
