    Pros

    If you are looking for a fast-paced environment where you will be surrounded by smart and genuinely good people and if you want to be pushed beyond your limits, this might be the place for you.

    Cons

    People who have left to work for other firms always tell me one of the first things they notice is how fast we were moving while we were at EnerNOC.

    Advice to Management

    Develop more leaders.

    Pros

    Plenty of Overtime if you were for the Network Operations team, specifically in the summer.

    Cons

    If you are a "remote" worker (California, Australia, etc) then don't expect them to truly care about your future at this company. I tried my hardest to stay at this company long term, but unfortunately since I was a "remote" employee that didn't work out. They are also at a stale mate when it comes to hiring full time employees.

    Judging by all the hiring emails, they love to hire interns and throw you away after 3-6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Stop choke holding the budget

    Pros

    I worked in the Engineering department. I enjoyed working there and felt that managers respected employees and valued work life balance. I would consider working there again and have recommended it to friends and associates.

    Cons

    Wish that the front end UI wasn't developed with Flex, being so limited me personally in terms of technical advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in technology.

    Pros

    If you are salary, you will have flexibility with your hours. Good pay for someone straight out of college. Decent (not great) perks.

    Cons

    Management (from junior to senior levels) have their own agenda, if you do not fit in it, WATCH OUT! The hours you are expected to work are crazy! (50-60+ work weeks are not uncommon) The company will do virtually NOTHING for employee retention. They let key contributors leave to save money rather than pay the going rate. Work/Family life balance, WHAT'S THAT? Ever work in a place where your peers review your performance and that determines your bonus or raise vs your manager doing it themselves? No? Because it should NEVER happen. If you are above 25 and looking for a career, STAY AWAY! If you are looking for a starter company to get your feet wet before moving on to a larger company (or smaller) you could do worse but the average length of employment is now sitting around 3 years. What does that say about the award for best places to work in Boston? Management shoved the company review down employees throats for employees to give positive reviews. and made it part of the year end company goal percentage of positive reviews or it would count negatively towards your bonus. Raises average around 2% annually while cost of living continues to rise to about 4% Don't let the positive reviews fool you, the majority of them are from junior employees or kids straight out of college with nothing to compare their current position to. This is a very young company but none the less it is a good ol' boys club. A fraternity that you are either in or not in. If you are not in, you are not valued or appreciated for your contributions. BEWARE of poor pay, below average raises and bonuses, decent but not great benefits, and HIGH employee turnover. (Good luck trying to advance or get promoted..see fraternity statement above) The best part of working at this company is the new office building with a great view of Boston Harbor, until they finish construction of the 3 buildings going up in front of it. Then, it will be just another building.

    Advice to Management

    WAKE UP! Treat your employees like professionals, stop letting them leave. Show them you value and appreciate them and they will stop leaving. The constant rehiring in nearly every department needs to stop. You are bleeding money right now and struggling to turn a profit.

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here. Borderline ethics, management can't be trusted or believed. EnerNOC loves to promise one thing and not deliver, especially to the sales teams.

    Cons

    If you are considering working here, be advised that the benefits are lacking, the pay is below average and EnerNOC will treat you as a disposable commodity. Turnover is rapid and constant. Middle management thrives on backstabbing to get ahead. If you have to take a job here, get the experience and have an exit plan in place. Unless you have a top 5 MBA and the right pedigree, career advancement is impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up. No one really likes working for jerks.

    Pros

    Salary, travel, expenses never questioned, autonomy,

    Cons

    Work environment, "Pump & Dump", not interested in customer concerns, just want to get the next contract

    Advice to Management

    Stop applying 1950 "cold call" tactics to a modern day consultative sales environment if you want to sell anything other than DR to a non-DR customer

    Pros

    There is a lot of great talent that goes to work at, then leaves EnerNOC. If you are a Tuck alum, you will be taken care of here!

    Cons

    As the curtain got pulled back, we realized the wizard was just a bunch of smoke. Reference the FERC fine imposed in Dec 2012 (public info). Commissions paid to sales are based on only a fraction of what the company actually bills or registers a customer at (reference same Dec 2012 FERC fines discussing Demand Response registration)

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. Your turnover of top talent over the past few years tells it all.

    Pros

    Great people, mission, dominance of demand response industry. What this company does really makes a difference, and the future prospects are bright. Office culture in Boston is strong, with great new office in the Seaport district, good work/life balance. Some senior executives are inspiring.

    Cons

    Salaries are less than what you would find in similar Cleantech and growth-oriented companies in NYC or the Bay Area. Many teams are dominated by strong personalities in senior positions, and there's an understood "step on others to get ahead" culture among middle managers to impress those personalities.
