    Employee-owned, great people, and compelling mission

    Pros

    The leaders really care about every team member. They have an open door policy that's real. They encourage you to communicate to anyone in the company directly. Cascade focuses on transforming industry through energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction. People are here because of that mission, and because of the company culture.

    Cons

    Can we slow to evolve the strategy. Can over-analyze things at times. May need to grow faster to provide growth paths for everyone.

    Great Place to Work!

    Mar 7, 2022 - Program Delivery Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great culture - full of people who really "walk the walk" and demonstrate the company's values of doing the right thing, and working collaboratively. The leadership team actively seeks feedback from employees. I've had the opportunity to grow a lot professionally in a relatively short period of time. Because Cascade is a smaller company than some others in the industry, there's opportunity to wear multiple hats, and space to try out your ideas.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Pros

    Cascade Energy is a rare find-- a good company that cares about its employees and has a great mission. We really want to make the world a better place by helping businesses save energy. Our company goal is not profit-based-- it is energy-saving based! I have enjoyed working with very smart people to make important changes happen to the industrial sector.

    Cons

    Some growing pains as we expand across the country and take on lots of new work.

    Pleasantly Surprised at Every Turn

    Feb 28, 2022 - Project Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I don't even know where to start, but everything that was wrong with my previous companies Cascade seems to be doing right. The work is interesting and challenging. Leadership walks the talk when it comes to company values and the values are actually applied and not just some words on a piece of paper. The best part is the huge emphasis on actual work life balance. My boss frequently checks in with me and my team to make sure that we have a balanced workload and are not burning out.

    Cons

    Cascade is a smaller company in a niche area of work with a fairly flat organizational structure so if you are a high flying super driven individual that desires many opportunities this may not be the place for you.

    Pros

    Good PRO/sick leave policy and flexible work schedule. Company is committed to operating according to stated values. Company transitioned well to WFH and remains flexible in that regard.

    Cons

    Programs are siloed which makes continuous improvement a challenge, particularly in more established programs.
