    Current Employee - Marketing in Petaluma, CA

    I have been working at Enphase Energy full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Collaborative 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.

    Cons

    Struggling 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Smart, motivated employees. Fast pace. Lots of work. Good business plan. Interesting products. Green technology.

    Cons

    It is difficult for everyone to adapt to change and Enphase Energy is all about changing the world... one solar system at a time!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand and acknowledge limits. Find multiple methods to measure performance because it's never an exact science.

    Former Employee - Finance in Petaluma, CA

    I worked at Enphase Energy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Open and transparent work space, team oriented, decent basic compensation. The company still tries to keep it social with quarterly fun Fridays and annual parties. Surrounded by very smart people, opportunities to learn something new every day. Great place to gain technology experience.

    Cons

    Very little upward mobility, rules and mandates are made before allowing any input from contributors. The company was innovative, creative and fun when it was a startup with lots of opportunity to learn from others, but as it's grown to a public mid sized company, innovation has been replaced by politics and posturing, and a great lack of sharing of information. Salary and benefits are decent when hired, but increases are very formulated (don't expect anything big) and performance has little to do with compensation, which is very discouraging. Some departments are innovative and flexible, while others are very old school and rigid (for example related to work-life balance, open communication etc). Inspiring things are proclaimed in quarterly meetings, but not regularly disseminated. Company needs to improve on inter-department communications... often times our projects are delayed or squashed because they are not a priority of another group on which we are dependent, which is not communicated timely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to get back to focusing on employee satisfaction, assuming retention is a value. Understood that as a company grows, it changes, but I think having a flood of employees leave with a negative experience would be something of concern.
