    I have been working at Sunrun full-time

    Pros

    Uncapped commission, company provides you leads and you present and close. Commission structure is built for volume. If you are a top performer you will make more than 200k a year, the highest earners get close to 500k but there are not many of us.

    Cons

    Your work never leaves you alone ( you will be dealing with clients 24/7), micromanaging, constant pointless company meetings (15+ a week). You will need to be on top of your business and all your projects to make sure they don't get screwed up (meaning you will be managing 40-60 projects each month as they go through the process of being installed). You will work 60+ hours a week if you want to make serious money.

    I have been working at Sunrun full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The vision and mission of this company is consistent and meaningful. They take excellent care of their employees and provide fantastic opportunities to make a great living in sales. Having worked at another two solar companies, it is clear that Sunrun is head and shoulders above the competition for many reasons.

    Cons

    There are no company specific cons, but the industry itself changes a lot and is consistently challenging.

    Pros

    Insane number of leads at first but you end up chasing everyone of them.

    Cons

    No tracking system for calling leads (I bought my own - Dialpad) I made A LOT of calls but Home Depot leads would always ghost me.
