    I have been working at EnerNOC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic young company attempting to pave new ground
    Performing well in the market
    Strong cash position
    Incredibly talented work force
    Strong desire to be number one

    Cons

    Company culture & work life balance varies by work unit
    Purchased companies are slow to meld into the EnerNOC fold
    Back office is undersized for current company growth
    2014 saw too many drastic changes, which proved ineffectual

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Align the culture. EnerNOC is a great place to work for many people, but not all. The inconsistency across teams can be problematic when we don't share the same passion for what we're doing. It appears there are several complaints on Glassdoor about poor work life balance, and people working on PTO. This has never been a requirement for me in seven years at EnerNOC, and is one of the best things about the company. This should be true in every department.

    I have been working at EnerNOC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Flexible Work Schedule
    - Located in Seaport

    Cons

    - Low Pay
    - Directors / Managers who are not knowledgeable in their field
    - Health Insurance and Benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No real plan. Everything and anything is due right now or was due 10 days ago. No thank you when working on time off or during non business hours. Really take advantage of employees. I see lot of talent going elsewhere after they gain some experience at EnerNOC.

    Pros

    Steady paycheck, company probably won't go under any time soon.

    Cons

    Tough to take these people as seriously as they take themselves. Almost everyone there has an overinflated sense of self worth. Demand response, once the core business, is not what it used to be. EnerNOC is trying to reinvent itself as an SAAS company. Good luck with that. I see comments on here about the fast pace and the heavy workload but I honestly never witnessed much of anything actually getting accomplished. Everything is an unorganized fire drill. Many times I just ignored the latest 'must have' because by the next day, it becomes something else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't pretend to care about doing anything beyond the bare minimum for you employees.

    Very smart people, good business, can be too political and feel like a cozy club for the management favorites.

    I worked at EnerNOC as a contractor (less than an year)

    Intelligent, insightful, respectful and experienced team members. Appreciate the contributions I made and the different perspective I offered. The materials and instructions they provided were top notch, making my job not only easy to do but fun as well.

    Cons

    Tight deadlines (but I knew they would be going into it).

    great company, great people

    I have been working at EnerNOC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    EnerNOC is a fun, fast and generally awesome. Embodies a work hard, play hard ethic. Very young colleagues and plenty of events keep things fun and ideas fresh.

    On-site CSA drop-off, yoga courses, paddle boards and kayaks, incredible office space, local hubway and fun after hours spots are great on top of competitive pay and general benefits.

    Cons

    Some people say the office location is a bit out there, but it's a 10 minute walk to South Station. More conference rooms would be helpful at times but mostly it's OK. The company is expanding rapidly which can cause stress on a lot of groups, but growing pains > shrinking pains.

    Pros

    The work is interesting and EnerNOC is growing and developing fast. There are some innovative ideas and products being developed. Very nice office, with daily benefits from extra free lunch to happy hours every couple weeks (they give out a lot of beer).
    The managers are nice and in general it feels like a software company where the main goal is to keep the employees comfortable and happy. But at the same time they expect a lot of work from you.

    Cons

    It is hard work! You need to put in extra hours often and it is sometimes stressful.
