    Pros

    Amazing management. Let's you do your work. Very helpful if you have questions. Amazing company culture. Everyone is happy. Always wanting you to learn the business. The company is helping the world go green. Weekly meeting so everyone stays in the same page. Each departments are very open with each other.

    Cons

    No cons to management. Management is always there to help. Sometimes it seems like there is a disconnect between the senior execs. But that is just because they are located upstairs. Amazing communication between the managers and your supervisors to the senior execs.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing

    I have been working at Clean Energy Fuels full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to work outside

    Cons

    If you like being watched on Camera, then this is the company for you. They are rolling out vehicle cams to further micro manage you. This is the easiest job I ever had, but the managers make you feel like the world is about to explode.
    On call ALL the time!!

    Advice to Management

    Please consider replacing our current east cost management. We are loosing people left and right.

    I worked at Clean Energy Fuels full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company makes a lot of money and generous to a point, pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Management is incompetent especially at the Boron plant, and backs are stabbed and scapegoats are made to ensure his job. HR is on his side so if you dont care about your self worth your job is safe.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for this management, you as errogant and ignorant as they come, so any advice would be ignored. Dollar signs are all that matters.

    I worked at Clean Energy Fuels full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The business plan of the company was essentially a good idea, use a cleaner/cheaper fuel that is sourced in north America.

    Good pay relative to competitors.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the company's leadership is amongst the most challenged in the country, in 35 years of work experience, I've never seen a worse company culture. The people who rise to the top are either socially or politically connected to the executive team.

    This has led to a company that has lost most of it's growth.

    Avoid employment with Clean Energy Fuels unless you are desperate for a job.

    Advice to Management

    Current management team is not capable of taking advice, not worth wasting breath to give them advice. Echo chamber. The current stock price of $2 per share is reflective of the management team, only way this company will get better is with a new management team. Current board of directors does not seem capable of doing what the organization needs.

    I worked at Clean Energy Fuels full-time

    Pros

    Location - close to freeways, and the weather is typically mild in Newport.

    Cons

    Everything else. This company doesn't care for its employees, the management is woeful at best, and the performance expectations are not commiserate with the compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking credit for the work done by staff. Stop moving unqualified people up the chain of command. Seek training in proper managerial skills. Stop paying exorbitant bonuses for title and do reward for contribution. Please learn how to exhibit consistent common courtesy. And please learn how to properly communicate - if you don't possess the basic skills necessary to impart an idea (like spelling, or email etiquette) your staff will continue to leave in droves - at least those with any talent or those you haven't laid off due to your inability to function.

    Pros

    New expensive building/office space in south OC, gym personal trainer, free coffee and sometimes bagels or donuts for breakfast but only if your good

    Cons

    Management skills, Sweeps errors under the rug, unable to recognize good talent and skills, neglects to give credit to the regular employees who do all the work - instead the managers are credited and acknowledged for your work, too many managers, directors, vp’s for made up departments of only 2-3 people, Sorry to say but my forecast is belly up for this company Clean Energy went from SO AWESOME to EPIC FAIL

    Good luck to all of you who are still there

    Advice to Management

    Get yourselves some additional management training sor at lease take a refresher course because you lack skilss

    opportunity to produce and work independantly

    Cons

    no upside even if you produce, the top managers take credit in California for your work. senior management invented methane and no one else matters. no accountability for bad decisions at the top. the Ego's have gotten in the way of good business sense and they have run out of money.

    Advice to Management

    get more effective soap, its starting to smell
