    I have been working at NEEA full-time

    Pros

    The work is rewarding, challenging and innovative. You get to make real impact in the market, influencing products and practices to make them more energy efficient. The company has good benefits and a nice downtown office.

    Cons

    NEEA plays lip service to fostering internal talent but this is the exception and not the norm. No career paths exist for internal employees and if there is one NEEA tends to bring in external talent opposed to rewarding those who have killed themselves advancing the organization. Too much work is inconsistently expected of employees which leads to few carrying the heavy loads for the many, yet these people are rarely nurtured and rewarded. Leadership is reactive, lacks focus and is either blind to the internal problems or lacks ability or motivation to fix it. Morale is at an all time low. NEEA has lost talented management due to these issues over the past year and is about to lose many more of its talent who are looking to flee.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on fostering internal talent. Stop paying lip service to this and put some actions behind it. You can only lose so much of your mission driven yet also talented work force before you're left with a staff of lame ducks who are there to collect a pay check. Every one is replaceable but due to the nature of our work losing all institutional knowledge will leave you vulnerable to continued missteps in the market and with your stakeholders. More of your core talent is looking for jobs than you know.

    Sr. management turmoil and lack of leadership from both sr. team and the Board is contributing to low morale and high stress.
