    Pros

    Enphase test program showed the company to have excellent people, professional company, Great benefits.

    Cons

    That it was a a good field pilot program. It did it's job, exposing areas of opportunity for solidifying existing distribution.

    Advice to Management

    The same idea could still be used,, but marketing in support of all Enphase dealers. Utilization of the local Solar Org lead distribution could be the vehicle, limited to Enphase dealers only. Everyone wins.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere Excellent ideas Solid benefits package

    Cons

    In general, Enphase is a good place to work. Having grown with the company it is interesting to see small issues blowing up into huge problems, all because of small company thinking.

    Advice to Management

    May be time to uproot the old guard...

    Pros

    Smart, motivated employees. Good products. Overall good culture. Some really good managers. (some not so much!) Bold risk takers. Innovative. Lots of change.

    Cons

    Culture could use some work so everyone fits in and can perform at 100%. They could do a better job of living their goals especially the one called "respect". Despite the massive amounts of great people who share the vision, the oddest thing is if you aren't Director or above, you aren't worthy. There aren't too many entry level jobs and very little opportunity outside the inner circle to move laterally or upwardly. (So if you are not in, you still can have a job you like and be good at it, but no future and no appreciation)

    Advice to Management

    Please get out of your comfort zone. "Like Me" is a weakness. The old saying "The whole is greater than the sum of the parts" is deserving of action. If someone doesn't look, walk, talk or act a certain way doesn't mean they can't make huge contributions. It just means the vision of what a "fit" is too narrow... if defined at all. Set definitions for what qualified for promotion because there are no rules and one person sitting next to another doing similar jobs are titled differently. Listen, unfiltered, to your first line managers. You would probably be surprised at what's working and what's not and the ideas you would get to fix a lot of small things that would end up with increased overall operationally efficiency. Consider an incentive for cost reduction. 10% of first year savings directly back to employee.

    Pros

    Great product, has been around for almost 10 years. I think the world of Solar should follow the technology of Enphase

    Cons

    Management is poor, they may have been ok up until now but I don't think they can take the company to the next level. It shows in the stock pricing.

    Advice to Management

    Time to switch mid to upper management.

    Pros

    Collaborative culture, good work/life balance (especially compared to Silicon Valley norms - office is pretty much empty by 6.15pm), smart and committed people, nice age diversity (again, compared to SilVal where being over 35 makes you feel out of place), walks the talk re. the green focus of the company, technology leader.

    Cons

    Struggling to find right balance between instituting processes and weighing teams down with too much process, Sometimes too many involved in each project, so over-collaboration can slow things down.

    Advice to Management

    Rebalance some teams to add extra hands at lower levels so more experienced team members have the bandwidth to fly.
