    I have been working at EnerNOC full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Flexible Work Schedule
    - Located in Seaport

    Cons

    - Low Pay
    - Directors / Managers who are not knowledgeable in their field
    - Health Insurance and Benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No real plan. Everything and anything is due right now or was due 10 days ago. No thank you when working on time off or during non business hours. Really take advantage of employees. I see lot of talent going elsewhere after they gain some experience at EnerNOC.

    I have been working at EnerNOC as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of Overtime if you were for the Network Operations team, specifically in the summer.

    Cons

    If you are a "remote" worker (California, Australia, etc) then don't expect them to truly care about your future at this company. I tried my hardest to stay at this company long term, but unfortunately since I was a "remote" employee that didn't work out. They are also at a stale mate when it comes to hiring full time employees.

    Judging by all the hiring emails, they love to hire interns and throw you away after 3-6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop choke holding the budget

    I worked at EnerNOC full-time

    Pros

    - Flexible work hours.
    - The chance to interact with some very smart co-workers.

    Cons

    -Management states teamwork but only praises/rewards certain individuals.
    -They'll make a big announcement about an individuals promotion yet 7+ other people are also doing the same tasks without the fanfare or pay increase.
    - Waste a lot of money/resources on group trips that they believe will boost morale.
    - Poor forecasting skills.
    - Constant re-branding of services that are poorly implemented.
    - Too many interns given the ability to make decisions that affect the bottom line.
    - Constant tinkering with commissions that affects Sales morale which in turn has a negative domino affect for other employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look in the mirror and realize that the problem is you. The individuals in charge do not have the collective experience to move the company forward in a positive direction. I was praying for an acquisition so that the current Team would get flushed and new life would get injected into the company.

    Pros

    Smart, talented employees, particularly in Energy Markets, Engineering and Reg Affairs
    Good place to gain experience in these areas if you're early in your career

    Cons

    For a company with less than 1,000 employees, EnerNOC is incomprehensibly disorganized
    Little opportunity for growth beyond the junior/mid levels
    Pervasive lack of leadership that stems from the top (CEO)
    No long term strategy at all.

    Unrealistic expectations and time frames make everyday a fire drill.

    Pros

    EnerNOC has an awesome vision for the company and every individual contributer there are great people to work with.

    Cons

    The problem is the people you have to work for. Unrealistic expectation and you get treated like an easily replaceable cog.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be some sort of work/life separation. Telling someone they have to log into a system and manual check its status once every half hour, 24 hours a day, seven days a week is ridiculous in any environment.

    Pros

    Nice to be in an energy-related services company that focuses on demand response, energy efficiency, commissioning and retrocommissioning and even software. From what I tell the teams throughout the company are young and smart. Stock prices are up, Up, UP!

    Cons

    Management can significantly improve direction of company

    I have been working at EnerNOC

    Pros

    Working with clean energy.
    My co-workers are very nice people.
    Demand Response is a good clean option.
    Working downtown Boston is cool.
    Some areas of the company are better managed than others, like engineering and operations.

    Cons

    Senior management is inexperienced. Lots of poor judgements, especially in business acquisitions and in personnel hiring and firing. Senior management displays much swagger and ego, but it is not deserving. And even if it was, they should not be this way.
    There seems to be confusion in Product strategy, lots of false starts, chasing after short money, not paying attention to the core competencies or a long-term vision.
    Poor benefits, no 401-k match, no tuition reimbursement, no care for the development of the employee. I was shocked a few months back when the company offered us stock shares in lieu of a portion of our salary; wow, this is not looking out for the welfare of their employees.
    Areas of the company which are dysfunctional are Marketing, Sales and Product Management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check your ego & swagger at the door.
    Care for your employees.
    Hire people with the right experience for the job especially at the senior level leadership positions.
    Focus on your core competencies and have a stronger long-term vision.
