    I worked at Optimum Energy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible work environment and decent base. Ben is the man!

    Cons

    The company changes managers every 1.5 years and thinks its product is its biggest asset without much regard for its employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that a good product without the right employees to sell it and evangelize it won't survive. Also move on from trying desperately to sell the company at a ridiculous multiplier and accept maybe it should be a stand alone enterprise.

    I worked at Optimum Energy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Green company, great location, decent health benefits, smart people.

    Cons

    New leadership, now entrenched, changed the culture. Made it a lot more cutthroat, less family oriented and only focused on metrics. They forgot people also work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees, create a winning culture and remember that the people make the company successful, not the product.

    I have been working at Optimum Energy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced... cutting edge. I have learnt a lot about start-ups and the transition to a mature company.

    Cons

    Can burn you out after a while. Has been a fair amount of top management change.
