    I have been working at EnerNOC full-time (more than a 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.

    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 a year)

    Pros

    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).

    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.

    I have been working at EnerNOC full-time (less than a year)

    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.

    I worked at EnerNOC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent mission and vision, felt good to be a part of improving the energy grid. Lots of smart, sharp employees.

    Cons

    Utilitarian/competitive attitude sometimes overshadowed "human-ness". Difficult to maintain work/life balance. Boston-centric leadership; if you aren't working in Boston, expect to receive your marching orders without considerable input/influence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The electric grid is changing, but utilities are not going anywhere. Best to mobilize human resources required to maintain relationships and work with them instead of ignoring them or working against them.

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

    Pros

    Very flexible with time off, kayak use in the harbor, amazing facilities, great young group of people.

    Cons

    Overworked. It is expected that you answer your email all hours of the day and every request is urgent. Worked during my paid time off without a thank you. Long grinding hours with little back office support causes high turnover rates. The health care is awful (really it's the worst I have ever experienced).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get help in the back office. Sales is expanding and so should Finance, Legal, Contracts, Energy Markets etc. With the globalization of the company the continuing lack of back end support will cause some of your best people to leave because of burn out and cause major errors that could potentially lead to financial miss calculations.

    Pros

    Full of smart, motivated people that want to make a difference in the world. Pay is fine.

    Cons

    Same problems as most companies. Leadership has a hard time making choices. Works the best people into the ground. The startup phase was fun. It's hard to deal with these issues now.

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

    Pros

    Very friendly ambient. A lot of young people. I made friends with who I still talk to. There are many activities and a lot of happy hours.

    Cons

    I think it is a little not organized as a company. It is growing so fast that people seem to loose controls and focus on what they should really be doing. The payment as intern is not good at all, 15$ hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more focused on details and what actually adds value to the company. Hire less interns or make them full time. The data analyst are just transferring data without learning anything tangible.
