    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

    Pros

    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

    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.

    Pros

    Great people and exciting industry to be a part of. Clean Energy is the leader in natural gas and can provide a lot of opportunity

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to know how to deal with the changing economic landscape. They react instead of being proactive.

    Advice to Management

    value your people and figure out what you want to be when the economy turns around.

    I worked at Clean Energy Fuels full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Average benefits. Nice office location near the airport and freeway. Other all mission sounds good - get America off foreign resources, but it's just a poor execution.

    Cons

    Anyone who is someone is connected to the VPs and C-level types. In order to move up the chain you have to be connected, otherwise you remain at the bottom. CEO gave it a good go at getting to know everyone, but it's just hard when you've grown to 200+ employees with a couple of subsidiaries in remote locations

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring someone simply because they are so and so's son or daughter. Hire based on talent, initiative and innovation. Take a different perspective to invoke real change.
