Too short to tell

2 month internship at ygrene in early months. I did some BD work while the company was in its infancy before I found another permanent role doing renewable energy project finance.

Not the best place to work for
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Petaluma, CAFebruary 20, 2018
Management was great during my time working here but there is no support from other Departments. As a CSR you’re expected to be the voice of the Company as my role was in a Call Center setting. Other departments would never pick up calls or even try to assist you. RAMs only care about their sales and they try to manipulate to make that happen and get their commission. This company also has many Contractors who lie to their customers and even sign for them contracts that have exaggerated amounts for HVAC systems or other products. I wouldn’t recommend working for this Company unless you want to have headaches every day.
Pros
Lunches, Gym
Cons
Bad hours

Needs improvement
Internal Loan Auditor (Former Employee) –  Petaluma, CAFebruary 6, 2018
While the PACE program had the potential to be a viable lending alternative, the company does not generally hire, promote, or value people with strong credit lending backgrounds. The business model (using "certified" contractors to sell the product with little standard lending industry oversight such as requiring final building permits before paying the contractors) lends itself to abuse. Elders, minority populations, and people who could not obtain financing elsewhere were unfortunately targeted by contractors. This also resulted in projects not getting completed and many complaints from customers. Fortunately new consumer protection regulations have been enacted and will be implemented to address the abuses that were inherit in the PACE business model. For example, PACE lenders will now have to document repayment ability before putting loans on people's property taxes.
Pros
Free lunch and yoga once a week.
Cons
No 401K match, poor implementation of business model which resulted in government oversight, poor management.

Good TOp management
Good vision
Good HR
Hardest part of the job is to simplify process for some of the new program intiative.
The best part was to learn how pace impacts society

Great place to work
Regional Sales Director (Current Employee) –  CaliforniaOctober 19, 2017
Great place to work. PACE financing is the best available financing for Property Owners to improve their properties. Creative, fast paced, start up environment.

PACE is under pressure to comply with many restrictive disclosure laws that may undermine the uniqueness of the asset.

That is the only reason I would consider leaving Ygrene or the PACE field.
Pros
Free lunches, Yoga, Massage, Gym
Cons
No 401k match
