    Spinning plates and watching your back

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) San Mateo, CA

    ProsOwned by Siemens. Some well respected industry leaders (Larsh J and Chris King).

    ConsInability to deliver product due to lack of foresight into development constraint and making unrealistic promises to customers.

    Senior executives ( excluding co founders) who are out for themselves only, and have no commitment to stay in the space or leadership drive for developing employees' careers. This includes the current President, the former CEO, most anyone with a VP title.

    A culture if it can be called that of intrigue, favoritism, back stabbing, and every man for himself.

    MDM is not a platform with any huge growth prospects.

    Very high turnover in the engineering and development arena.

    Lack of product management expertise in Utility processes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShuffle the legacy EMeter executive and sales team, and focus on product development and smart grid business processes consulting.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Emeter a start up with start up expectations.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Redwood City, CA

    ProsWorking with new technology, knowing what you do contributes to less energy being used and therefore is helping the environment

    ConsNo raises, bonuses for any overtime or hard work done. I felt that the development team lived in the office at one point.

    I wore multiple hats when I worked here. Even when I found ways to save money for the company I was never given a raise or title change to reflect new responsiblities I willing accepted. Everyone was salaried when I worked there and overtime was required and expected without comp time. This is typically of start-ups where as an employee you agree to no longer have a life outside of work.

    Management was similar to a teenage clique. By far the worst management I have had in my 20 + years as an employee. The managers had no problem gossiping about people in the office when they were not there to defend themselves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry engaging with your employees. Reward them when they do a job well done and help them do the job better when they don't preform well. Being in the office is part of a manager's job. Try being in the office 5 days a week like your employees do.

    tread with care

    Prefer Not to State (Former Employee) Redwood City, CA

    Prospromising technology and decent pay for a start-up.

    Consoverwork. dishonest accounting. gossip and back-biting. also, while I was there, I personally witnessed a manager lie to get rid of a new employee simply because the manager (who was otherwise very capable) felt threatened by the employee's ability. therefore I would not recommend working for e-Meter if you are extremely talented, unless you are adept at office politics and have good friends higher up in the company who can protect you from this type of abuse.

    Advice to Senior Managementlisten to everyone, not just your back-scratchers. make sure that everyone is treated fairly and rewarded accordingly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Local management has destroyed the culture of the company for their personal interests

    Senior Systems Engineer (Current Employee) Noida (India)

    ProsGood Salary
    Good Employees
    One of the few companies in Delhi region that work in MDM and smart grid.

    ConsCore employees are highly unsatisfied.
    Local Management is highly biased towards his friends and referrals.
    Don't have enough work for us and most of the employees are getting bore.
    Performance evaluation is based on your relation with manager not based on your achievements.
    Management behavior is very rude.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe need some good leaders who can create a good culture in company.
    Treat all employees equally else we will loose good employees very soon.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
