    I worked at Vivint Solar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, if you need to come in early to leave early that was ok. They are very accommodating. Friendly work environment.

    Cons

    Working with sales reps you deal with people wanting you to be on call for them, but that’s not your job. When you clock out, you clock out, but that is not well understood.

    I worked at Vivint Solar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of effort to cater to millennials with pool tables, foosball, video game room, $6 meal credit per day, etc. Culture is great and quite a few very talented people. David Bywater truly cares about people and company.

    Cons

    Weird staff/environment: multi colored hair everywhere, guys wearing makeup, big dogs brought to work, mormon managers, unprofessional PDA in the lunch lines. just not professional. Some senior managers' ability to execute company values suck.

    Advice to Management

    Have to stop running the place like it's a mom and pop organization. Managers going through some existential crisis in their life chasing good talent away. People/departments working in silos, duplicating work and not working together. Managers giving contradictory instructions to several departments. Chaotic, unorganized managers, unprofessional.

    "Avoid at all cost"

    Former Employee - Sales Manager 

    I worked at Vivint Solar part-time

    Pros

    I’m having trouble thinking of one

    Cons

    Scam! They won’t pay you in full. Must be a morman if you want respect. This company is a joke. You will waste your own money working for them. I just hope I can save someone from accepting a job here as they will hire anything that breathes.
