    ProsClean Energy has very respectable goals and is pushing hard to move the country towards natural gas fueling. The company offers a great opportunity to get into that field.

    ConsThere seems to be a lot of finger pointing between a lot of the departments. Also, requiring business casual clothes all the time tends to get a bit suffocating. Allowing a little bit more casual dress (even just polos) would make working there a bit more bearable.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Concept and Vision for the future of Natural Gas Fueling

    Information Technology (Former Employee)
    Seal Beach, CA

    ProsGreat benefits package. Experience to work in a relatively new industry. Coworkers are very nice and intelligent.

    ConsCompany rife with politics. Compensation is weak. High turnover of employees. Little to no training. Long hours worked with little or no communicaiton between higher management and supervisiors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease company morale, pay your employees competitively according to industry standards. More communication throughout all departments and levels of management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I Love the Environment!

    General Manager (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsFast-paced environmentally friendly company trying to convince large fuel users that there is a clean, domestic alternative fuel available for much of their fleet.

    Good vehicles are being made by several small vehicle manufacturers-- with the same (or better) requirements that the Big Three would have to comply with.

    A sale or conversion is a slow process...but fulfilling when accomplished!

    ConsAs the fuel provider, Clean Energy depends on vehicle variety and reliabilty...as well as convincing fleet departments (many of which come from an "Old School" mentality that diesel engines are the only way to drive their fleet)--

    The sales process is upwards to one year and must have the buy in of several departments as well as be lined up with the next budget and fleet buy. This slow process is excruciating.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNew customers don't come on board (outside of California) as fast as anyone would like-- especially without the incentives and mandates seen in California.

    It didn't feel that other parts of the country were given the same encouragement or attention that the California teams had.
