Featured Review

Former Intern - IT Applications Developer

I worked at Las Vegas Valley Water for more than a year

Pros

- Diverse set of teams and applications to learn from - Modernizing technology and working environment - Cohesive direction for the organization, everyone feels to be pulling in the same... direction - Knowing you are working at a world class utility and serving the valley

Cons

- No set path forward to full time employee - You can only learn as much as your team allows you to - Old application maintenance

Advice to Management

It is disingenuous to treat the internship position as if it is an apprenticeship without allowing any real path to finding work at the District. If there are no openings when you graduate that is... the end of your career. Despite how many months/years you have spent in the position, or institutional knowledge you have gained.

Former Employee - Lead Generator

I worked at SolarCity full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great benefits, good pay, fair scheduling

Cons

Blind management focused purely on numbers. Misleading customers into a sub quality product. This company sells long term loans and does it in a sneaky way.

Advice to Management

Sell a viable product and ensure the correct people are in management.
