    Pros

    free lunch, nice colleagues, pto

    Cons

    the priorities shift week to week. It is one thing to move with The Times it's another to have no clue on what they are doing. Vice presidents enough have no clue on how to manage how to lead how to establish strategic objectives and follow through in order to make money this company seems to want to elevate and pay the Bros and lever and else go it's the worst manage company I have ever seen almost everyone at the top has no experience in the electric utility industry let alone the solar industry.

    I worked at Vivint Solar full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free lunch is great, always opportunity for growth and change. The culture is light and fun, some of my co-workers became my best friends. Overall great environment.

    Cons

    Like a lot of places, it's a big political game, if you know how to play it to your advantage then you're golden but if not, good luck. I always felt the pay was lacking and was ignored when approaching leaders about serious issues. Felt like there was no transparency with leadership when I would repeatedly ask for transparency, we're all adults in a corporate setting, let's stop beating around the bush to avoid hurting feelings. Leaders were put into positions they're not qualified for because they were top performers, top performers do not equal good leaders. Poor leadership leads to poor teams and poor culture.
