    Pros

    Cleantech is awesome. All our clients are trying to make the world a better place (while making money, of course).

    Cons

    Be prepared to be fired rather than trained to do a better job.

    Advice to Management

    No words!

    The legend of Melody Haller is just hearsay now. Most of us here started after Beckerman PR took over. Now the legend is notorious Beckerman CEO Keith Zakheim who is infamous for his email rant to his own New Jersey office -- and even us on the West Coast -- that he wanted to fire the person who left only a drop of milk left in the shared carton. All we know is they fire anyone and everyone at will. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    Pros

    Clean tech is a solid industry with the financial, political and regulatory backing to make it a stable career sector; learn what you can at Antenna via diverse client work and move on.

    Cons

    The new owners, Beckerman, are New Jersey at its worst. "Leadership" is focused solely on new business. Internal communications are poor to non-existent, and the younger staff are burnt out. The only way to get a promotion or pay increase is to threaten to quit. Overall lack of professional maturity and interest in personnel management.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. Be mindful of your human assets. Stop throwing spaghetti at the wall when it come to new business development. Talk to the staff. Don't swear at them. Don't criticize them in front of others. Work intelligently with clients but stop kissing their asses. Better manage their expectations.
