    I have been working at ChargePoint full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great and I really enjoy going to work each day

    Cons

    Growing pains and lots of hiccups throughout the org that unfortunately cost the overall business

    Advice to Management

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

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

    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.

    Pros

    From the interview/onboarding process to the employee culture, ChargePoint is an excellent place to work whether or not you're an experienced EV professional. The Director of People Operations (HR Director) takes her time in hiring people who bring added value to the overall company but also fit the company culture. When you get hired, the whole company comes together to offer you the support and resources you need to be successful.
    ChargePoint just moved into a brand new, state of the art facility and the open space design helps foster this inter-team interaction. The CEO sits outside with everyone and Upper Management is always available to you for any help you need!

    Cons

    No cons at all! If you get an interview, do your best to work here!

    I have been working at ChargePoint full-time

    Pros

    ChargePoint is one of the few companies that does not have a lot of office politics. Personalities, yes, but we get to work with a lot of bright and talented people.

    Work life balance is crucial for many people - we have that here.

    Cons

    We are sometimes compared to "Google" when it comes to the benefits and perks. Nope, we are not like that company, we aren't anywhere the size of them either, but we do have an awesome culture and the perks we do have, we appreciate.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your managers. Give them the training that they need to become great leaders. Be mentors and appreciate your employees.
