Good but not the best

Applications Support Intern (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

I worked at EnerNOC as an intern for less than a year

ProsVery friendly ambient. A lot of young people. I made friends with who I still talk to. There are many activities and a lot of happy hours.

ConsI think it is a little not organized as a company. It is growing so fast that people seem to loose controls and focus on what they should really be doing. The payment as intern is not good at all, 15$ hour.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more focused on details and what actually adds value to the company. Hire less interns or make them full time. The data analyst are just transferring data without learning anything tangible.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Typical Company, Great People

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

I worked at EnerNOC full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFull of smart, motivated people that want to make a difference in the world. Pay is fine.

ConsSame problems as most companies. Leadership has a hard time making choices. Works the best people into the ground. The startup phase was fun. It's hard to deal with these issues now.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A good place to work

Director of Business Development (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at EnerNOC full-time for more than 5 years

ProsOne of the few successful clean tech companies, well respected among its customers, very focused and driven work culture.

ConsManagement can sometimes close ranks, making it tough for employees in the rest of the organization to really feel ownership of the company and its achievements

If you are looking to be challenged...

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at EnerNOC full-time for more than 3 years

ProsIf you are looking for a fast-paced environment where you will be surrounded by smart and genuinely good people and if you want to be pushed beyond your limits, this might be the place for you.

ConsPeople who have left to work for other firms always tell me one of the first things they notice is how fast we were moving while we were at EnerNOC.

Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop more leaders.

Business Development at Boston HQ

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at EnerNOC full-time

ProsGreat people, mission, dominance of demand response industry. What this company does really makes a difference, and the future prospects are bright. Office culture in Boston is strong, with great new office in the Seaport district, good work/life balance. Some senior executives are inspiring.

ConsSalaries are less than what you would find in similar Cleantech and growth-oriented companies in NYC or the Bay Area. Many teams are dominated by strong personalities in senior positions, and there's an understood "step on others to get ahead" culture among middle managers to impress those personalities.

Great smart grid experience, bright employees, youthful culture at a maturing company

Marketing Specialist (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

I worked at EnerNOC full-time for more than a year

ProsExtremely smart and motivated co-workers. Plenty of opportunities for people that are learning the industry or early in their career. Culturally, it feels like a start-up but offers much greater security. Opportunities for mentorship are there if you seek them out. Equity in the company and a solid mission are good motivators. HR and managers are listening much more to employees than they have in the past. Use those resources. Great feeling to work at a company that's a true smart grid success story. Good benefits, with a few nice bonuses like snacks & sodas, yoga classes, and massages.

ConsWorkload and learning curve can be intimidating. Be prepared to work hard and deal with shifting priorities. There are lots of meetings, but generally managers are good about time management and giving teams clear next steps. Sales drives the organization, which is great in boom times but can be a drag on morale when there are setbacks. Finding a career path up through the organization can be difficult, but seek out mentors, and your hard work will be noticed.

Advice to Senior ManagementStay focused. You've built a solid business with a mission. Keep your employees' sights on the next goal, and give your managers the chance to reward them when they get there. It's easy to make things overcomplicated in this industry. Keep it simple, and people with stick with you.

Hard charging... for better or worse

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at EnerNOC full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat mission
Good market
Lots of headroom to grow
"hard charging" "get it done" environment is exciting
smart people.
"good" people - you'd want to grab a drink with them after work

Cons"hard charging" "get it done" environment can be exhausting
like any company, has some strong leaders and some not great leaders.
not enough experience in certain roles favoring a certain "pedigree" over experience

Great Company, Super Passionate Employees, Dysfunctional at Times

Operations (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

I worked at EnerNOC full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe EnerNoc mantra of hiring "smart, relentless, and good" people is true - exceptional team
Incredibly exciting industry and EnerNoc is the clear leader
Challanges galore - great opportunity to learn and disrupt an old, stodgy industry (energy)
Meritocracy - you'll read some horrible glassdoor reviews but my sense is those come from really bitter underperformers (you can almost identify them by name!). EnerNoc weeds out poor hires fast but perhaps not fast enough
Customer/market focused - they deliver what they say they'll deliver and they really focus externally

ConsChallenges galore - the flip side is that change happens fast and can be disruptive
Dysfunctional product strategy - do you want to be in efficiency or not? Do you want great tech? Make a decision and stick with it!
Super sales-oriented culture - ease up! Sales results are great and you've got great leadership but spread the attention and investment
Politics - a lot of people kiss up but they hire a lot of upwardly mobile people so it wasn't shocking

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up. I really enjoyed my time there and I was impressed with leadership despite their relative inexperience. Then again they've been doing it longer than anyone in the industry so I guess that might not apply any more.

Tune your approach and try to be more consistent. The ship is heading in the right direction and the fact that you're an alternative energy success story is testament to your leadership.

Keep investing in product and engineering. Try to spread the equity - I got stiffed too many times!
