    I worked at ChargePoint full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salt of the earth people and a great product to feel good about making better, especially in this age of pointless software and other pointless materialistic BS. Expanding into the EU and growing fast. Dogs at work every day.

    Cons

    The company is spread a little thin but hiring and working on making general operations better.

    I have been working at ChargePoint full-time

    Pros

    I have truly enjoyed my experience in ChargePoint. The company fosters a good culture and offers good growth opportunities to its employees. Additionally, the company very transparent with its employees on the status of product and sales etc, supports town hall events and a woman's initiative, and supports various other professional development opportunities for its employees.

    Cons

    Even though it is an established "start up" , the company is spread a little thin, and I find that I do struggle with work life balance at times. Management is aware and there is always a strive to maintain the culture that ChargePoint adheres.

    Pros

    Great people. Great technology (hardware and cloud services). Well financed (recently raised $240M). Pre-IPO company. Amazing industry - Growing rapidly. Company cares about its people. Based in the heart of Silicon Valley

    Cons

    If you come here, you will work hard. That is not really negative, but it is a reality.

    Keep bringing on great people.

    I worked at ChargePoint full-time

    Pros

    The business is very interesting and has potential to grow into something fantastic. There are some great people working there and it’s in a great location and is a really fun environment.

    Cons

    The leadership is very disorganized and there’s a huge lack of communication which creates a very difficult work environment. Also the person running their recruiting is just a nightmare I was told three different start dates and ended up supporting more people than I originally was told it definitely was much different than the described it was going to be and there’s a lot of internal gossip

    Advice to Management

    Communicate thoughts And a positive and proactive way to help stop turn over from happening and really get a little bit more organized within all of your departments

    Pros

    Very smart people, but not a high ego place. Definitely has an open transparent vibe.
    The company is growing rapidly and there's tons of opportunities for growth.
    Great location in Campbell.

    I love the passion about what we do here. There's a real sense of tying your own specific job to something that can make a difference to climate change and the world as a whole. People here care, and that comes across quickly.

    It's a fun place to work too! People take their jobs seriously, but there's a fun, friendly vibe that I get at pretty much every level of interaction.

    Cons

    There is no 401k match
