    Pros

    You will learn few things about how the billing for Smart energy is done. But beyond that there is nothing you can learn at this company

    Cons

    Lame management that can not decide if its hardware & software company or software only company

    Pros

    Green technology that might be hot

    Cons

    - Highly political for a small company
    - Minority employee hell. Go to the company to see the ratio of minority employees.
    - No pat on the back for good work but any good work gets shadowed by management.
    - No career growth if you are not in the "in" group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Learn management
