    Great place to work

    Technical Writer (Former Employee)
    Petaluma, CA

    ProsThis company has a great product, good workplace culture, good organization, beautiful location. Attitudes are very positive and departments work together well. Employees believe in the product and the alternative energy concept.

    ConsFine product details are a moving target. Open workspace environment can be a little noisy.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Company Focused on IPO More than Employees

    Enjoy the intern time in Enphase Energy

    Hardware Engineer (Former Employee)
    Petaluma, CA

    ProsThere are a lot of things you need to study. Very challenge but useful. The working life is not tough and very balance.

    ConsYou need touch and study a lot of new things you never do before.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI am very satisfied with the company.

    Fast-paced, fun environment at the beginning...

    Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee)
    Petaluma, CA

    ProsGood compensation, fast-paced development environment, opportunity to design for a broad range of manufacturing processes, challenging design projects.

    ConsUnrealistic expectations, especially in terms of product cost. Project deadlines are set to impossibly short development cycles, and then keep getting extended once management realizes deadlines can't be met. Working with Chinese manufacturing partners can be frustrating, to say the least

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake engineers input when developing product development timelines.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good experience, accessible executives and great mentorship culture

    Sales Operations Analyst (Current Employee)

    Proscool office vibe, reasonable hours, good culture

    Conshigh tech can be stressful, sometimes hard to find people because they work part time from home, etc.

    Changing the world with really nice people

    Marketing (Current Employee)
    Petaluma, CA

    ProsCollaborative culture, good work/life balance (especially compared to Silicon Valley norms - office is pretty much empty by 6.15pm), smart and committed people, nice age diversity (again, compared to SilVal where being over 35 makes you feel out of place), walks the talk re. the green focus of the company, technology leader.

    ConsStruggling to find right balance between instituting processes and weighing teams down with too much process, Sometimes too many involved in each project, so over-collaboration can slow things down.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRebalance some teams to add extra hands at lower levels so more experienced team members have the bandwidth to fly.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great intentions.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSome of the most dedicated passionate people to work with. Collaboration was encouraged although maybe less now that it is larger. Love the product and how it can change the world. If you have a strong manager this is a great place.

    ConsHigh level of chaos, big division between management and the working people. Communication between departments and management to staff is poor. Focus is no longer on how the product can change the world and just on the bottom line.

    Advice to Senior ManagementScale the chaos - plan ahead don't react, increase your interaction with the staff not just managers - walk the floor, senior staff doesn't seem to be in control of what is happening

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Rife with executive dysfunction

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are some great rank and file personnel that carry the weight of the company in spite of poor leadership. And the company is located in a wonderful locale.

    ConsA consistent lack of trust within Enphase stifles innovation and collaboration, delaying new product introduction. Look at the experience of the executives and ask if they have the competence to hold their current position, and you'll likely be able to pick out the key source of the dysfunction. Sadly, the potential for this company is severely threatened.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSurgically remove the source of consistent trauma to the team or market leadership will be forever lost.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Be Careful about working here

    Engineer (Former Employee)
    Petaluma, CA

    ProsEnphase Energy literally created the Micro-Inverter market and was able to do a successful IPO based on taking advantage of being first in the market.

    ConsManagement has no clue what they are doing when it comes to product development and putting a 25 year warranty on a product that will not last that long could be the downfall of this company as their field returns escalate over the next few years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the employees and quit adding more Managers that have no clue what they are doing. They don't promote any employees but continually bring in more and more Managers therefore pushing the real workers lower down the totem pole.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
