    Great place to work,

    Energy Analyst Intern (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsThe work is interesting and EnerNOC is growing and developing fast. There are some innovative ideas and products being developed. Very nice office, with daily benefits from extra free lunch to happy hours every couple weeks (they give out a lot of beer).
    The managers are nice and in general it feels like a software company where the main goal is to keep the employees comfortable and happy. But at the same time they expect a lot of work from you.

    ConsIt is hard work! You need to put in extra hours often and it is sometimes stressful.

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

    Exciting work, smart colleagues, competitive atmosphere, Boston-centric

    Project Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsExcellent mission and vision, felt good to be a part of improving the energy grid. Lots of smart, sharp employees.

    ConsUtilitarian/competitive attitude sometimes overshadowed "human-ness". Difficult to maintain work/life balance. Boston-centric leadership; if you aren't working in Boston, expect to receive your marching orders without considerable input/influence.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe electric grid is changing, but utilities are not going anywhere. Best to mobilize human resources required to maintain relationships and work with them instead of ignoring them or working against them.

    Typical Company, Great People

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    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

    Good but not the best

    Applications Support Intern (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    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.

    A good place to work

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

    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)

    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)

    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.

    User Experience Design Intern (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsSmart people, nice office and they make sure you have what you need to do your job

    ConsNot a fan of the new location (Yet, it is growing though), though the building is

    Hard charging... for better or worse

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    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

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