    Former Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Petaluma, CA

    I worked at Enphase Energy full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Unrealistic 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 ManagementAdvice

    Take engineers input when developing product development timelines.

    Changing the world with really nice people

    Current Employee - Marketing in Petaluma, CA
    Current Employee - Marketing in Petaluma, CA

    I have been working at Enphase Energy full-time (less than a 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.

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

    Pros

    Some 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.

    Cons

    High 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 ManagementAdvice

    Scale 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

    Former Employee - Engineer in Petaluma, CA
    Former Employee - Engineer in Petaluma, CA

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

    Pros

    Enphase 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.

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    Listen 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.

    Rife with executive dysfunction

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Enphase Energy full-time

    Pros

    There 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.

    Cons

    A 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 ManagementAdvice

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