Uneven - but not as bad as people say here

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

ProsThis is a great place to get into the energy efficiency/cleantech space. EnerNOC hires a lot of people right out of undergrad and grad school and puts them onto impactful projects pretty quickly. Also, many people without 4 year degrees have been very successful in field ops and even in the NOC. Training and support are not always great, but drinking from the firehose can be a professional growth experience. EnerNOC serves a very diverse customer base and employees get a good idea of how many industries use energy. While it is an intense demanding work environment, several employees have been able to set up remote work situations when they've needed to move for a partner or spouse. Also, EnerNOC is pretty reasonable accommodating people with newborns and/or sick family members. If you are early in your career, this is a good place to learn the industry.

ConsUpper management seems to have contempt for HR processes and talent management. As a result, some depts are miserable and worked to death while others are healthy and well run. It all depends on the quality of your manager. Your opportunities for training, growth, and career advancement also are highly dependent on your direct manager which is frustrating for many who work in poorly managed groups. Upper management takes an ad-hoc approach to many decisions that really require a much more disciplined and thoughtful approach, especially in regards to reorganizations and resource allocations. In addition, certain executives have hoarded parts of the org chart that logically shouldn't roll up to them. Communication could also be vastly improved. EnerNOC is also big enough now that it should make a conscious effort to boost diversity.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet serious about talent management and providing learning and growth opportunities for those in the cube farms. Also, identify and weed out weak managers who created toxic environments for their underlings.
