    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 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.

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

    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

    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

    Pros

    Very good job with independence and schedule flexibility. Good compensation for this area but they aren't willing to pay for above and beyond when it comes to talent or work performed.

    Cons

    The politics and management choices made are often time not beneficial to the field work or workers. Management is out of touch with field operations and the lack of communications is horrible for a senior successful company such as this.

    Advice to Management

    Open up the communication lines and listen. Valid suggestions are valuable from the top to the bottom. Recognize loyalty and dedication and punish poor performance and work ethics.

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

    Pros

    The location. That's about it.

    Cons

    Most poorly managed company I've ever worked for!! They are completely tone deaf and out of touch with the modern office environment. Between the nepotism, lack of education, and almost no communication this team is severely lacking. Morale extremely low with seemingly zero acknowledgment. Clients are treated nearly as poorly as employees. Look elsewhere if competitive pay, a comfortable working environment or a functional management team is important to you.

    Advice to Management

    None, as they will not listen anyway.
