    Someone else said it and it is true. Work life balance is better for some teams while others work crazy hours regularly

    Pros

    The company is great and the product an industry leader. They put their employees first, but it definitely depends on which department you are in.

    - Snacks

    Cons

    There were growing pains during my time here and unfortunately it took many resignations within a month for management to acknowledge that there was an issue with morale. On a good note, the loss in the talent they had is leading to some positive changes for their existing employees, so I hope they stay true to these promises and keep them happy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting employees into middle management positions based on seniority and not on managerial skills because the one you promoted for my team, had absolutely none. You needed a "YES" person, and you got what you asked for, but at the cost of losing some talent.

    STOP WITH THE MICROMANAGING - place some trust in your employees and don't punish the entire team for one or two bad apples. If you have employees who are performing poorly - deal with them, because it is unfair for those who work hard to see these counterparts continue with their bad habits without repercussion.

    You claim to provide salaries fair to the market value. You are not. Add this along with the micromanaging - you will see more resignations.

    Again, there seems to be some change in the horizon, so I hope these issues are dealt with. ChargePoint is a great company and I want them to succeed. Just make sure you keep your team happy. They want to be there.

    Great Mission and company is very loyal to its employees, the company is at the beginning of a fast growth ramp, expanding internationally.

    Cons

    I worked at ChargePoint full-time

    Pros

    Supervisors, snacks, not much else

    Cons

    Low pay , being tricked to have to work for a temp agency not CP, No benefits , no chance for advancement, stressful job

    Advice to Management

    Driver support is your frontlines , yet there is obvious lack of care for driver support. I have a over a decade of customer service that wasn't even a consideration in pay or my education. I have never had such a bright look on a companies potential to be so disappointed by a company cause of the lack of care for their employees ( lower). Get rid of the temp agency don't trick people into working for you through them.

    I worked at ChargePoint full-time

    Pros

    Open culture of debate, good people and great industry to work in... Doing your part in changing the world is a great motivator to come to work everyday.

    Cons

    Debating things and getting approval from multiple stakeholders frequently delays projects. Favoritism, politics and hiring employees without the required skill set. Some teams work 30 hrs per week others have to double up to 70 hrs. Leadership has differing priorities.

    Advice to Management

    Make faster and more informed decisions, make sure the people you hire have the right experience or skills.

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

    Pros

    Good product for a new industry. Everyone is committed to the EV industry (over half the employees drive an electric car) and has a passion for sustainability. In-house "happiness manager" that provides snacks like bagels, cheese, fruit, etc that are all organic and healthy. Very little micro management and the people are really friendly.

    Cons

    Very little training to get you acclimated with the processes involved to succeed. Management had no direction to give when approached for help. Big time favoritism within the company. Many of the current employees that have been there for over 3 years were colleagues of the higher execs. Some of them even got the job because of knowing the CEO or one of the directors. These people have no idea what they're doing, but have titles such as "Director" or "Manager" without having prior experience in those roles. The pay is laughable. They take low-balling to a whole new level.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent. If you are going to be a manager for a department, be an expert in what you manage. Have training for those that need it. Stop hiring people and setting them up to fail.
