Terrible place to work - no career advancements
Scheduling Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Lehi, UTJanuary 13, 2019
This is an awful place to work despite the allure of a great envy and great, friendly people. It’s a business that’s failing. Clean energy is losing steam and the market is way to volatile to enter. Their IPO was 13.00+ and now are teasing for less than two Wendy’s cheeseburgers a share. Avoid this company at all cost! Recently took a huge loan out from Bank of America... Acquiring capital so many years later? They’re broke..
Pros
Free food (garbage catering; most eat offsite)
Cons
Failing industry, failing business, lack of transparency

Fun work place with great people.
Click Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  American Fork, UTJanuary 7, 2019
Vivint solar is a fun place to work at, they have good benefits and an energetic work place. they have a lot of various teams and opportunities to move around and experience multiple types of work.

Management tends to be somewhat sporadic with quick decisions made without full consideration of how the decisions will affect every aspect of the company. That often results in broken processes and rushed workflow.
Pros
Lunches are provided, with multiple options every day.
Cons
Traffic in the area can get bad.

Great work environment
SALES MANAGER/ENERGY ADVISOR (Former Employee) –  Bohemia, NYJanuary 6, 2019
Vivint is an amazing place to work. The management is great and the culture is like no other. It does require much discipline as you are on your own and there is no one making sure you're physically at work every day.

Not a good place to work at all
Work Order Processor/Installer (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTJanuary 4, 2019
It was good starting off but this company is full of broken promises! Team lead and supervisors did not know what there were taking about or doing. It might of gotten better but I still wouldn’t recommend anyone to work there!
Pros
It’s a job to get a paycheck
Cons
To many to count!

Manager (Current Employee) –  Lehi, UTDecember 12, 2018
Heavy sales culture with support from everyone else. Decent company but definite favoritism to that org, need to be willing to accept that as part of the company. If you don't then you will not like working here, if you do you can find other benefits to working outside of sales.
Pros
work/family balance
Cons
Hard to move up inside corporate departments

Horrible Company
Warehouse Area Supervisor (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CADecember 10, 2018
If you're looking for tons of overtime at the expense of a stress, a heart condition, and potential divorce, Vivint's the place! Horrible management, no training and nothing but endless work with no reward. Find a company that actually cares about you, this isn't it.

Not a safe company
Service Technician (Former Employee) –  New JerseyNovember 26, 2018
Many safety rules which are not really followed of enforced. SO many techs do not follow safety precautions and you need to watch videos and check off as you are following the safety rules but they are not really followed.

Standard Day
Field Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Mount Laurel, NJOctober 30, 2018
Standard day at Vivint was reporting to the Warehouse to pick up supplies and truck. Then on the road to accomplish the tasks set on my schedule. Very rarely would I interact with management as they trusted us to accomplish our tasks correctly in a timely manner. We would occasionally get to work in teams which was also nice.
Pros
very little oversight
Cons
physically demanding, outside in all weather

Best company to work for hands down!
Regional Recruiter/Admin (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAOctober 26, 2018
Vivint Solar is the real deal. You 100% get out what you put in. The incentives and commissions are structured to reward your efforts and the products are quality. I believe the greatest thing about working at Vivint Solar is the culture. The environment and culture at VSLR are positive and competitive. I love the incentives and the fact that the leadership leads from the front and sells with the team. You feel like you are part of something and your efforts matter.
Pros
Uncapped Pay, Culture, Leadership, Quality Training, Travel, Flexible Schedules
Cons
not in every state yet

I really liked working there. The only issue was the opportunity to grow. After working there for almost 9 months, I feel like there is no possibility to grow.

Customer Solutions Specialist II (Former Employee) –  Lehi, UT 84043October 8, 2018
I liked the free lunches, and the building itself was super modern and a good environment. I felt like the work was a build overwhelming at times, but also felt like I was achieving my goals in a timely manner and understanding more about the company.
