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

    Pros

    -Relaxed work environment
    -Genuine coworkers
    -Plenty of opportunity and education available
    -Management (Director and above) are very approachable, friendly, caring, and involved.
    -Great benefits

    Cons

    -The locations in Norwalk was a con for me personally.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to work from home more often if their job can be done outside of the office. I was allowed to do this and accomplished much more while being much more comfortable. It made me grateful and more accomplished since I was now being judged on the quality of my work and not time spent in the office.

    I enjoyed time I spent there. I look back on my time at Crius very fondly.

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

    Pros

    Fast paced environment where if you are willing to work a lot of hours and are able to figure things our for yourself (no hand holding here) then you have an opportunity to advance, but it comes at a price.

    Cons

    Bad data, bad processes, quick expansion leads to a stressful work environment where you are consistently trying to keep your head above water. Pay is low for all the work.

    I worked at Crius Energy full-time

    Pros

    Company will be profitable. People are expendable and ideas are disposable

    Cons

    Legal centric culture with so much focus on execution and little master planning or realistic direction. Acquisitions do not make the company stronger, they over task executives and create a demand for outlandish projections.

    Advice to Management

    There are more innovative ideas coming out of the break room than the boardroom. Listen to the lifeblood of the organization.

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

    Pros

    If you are good at keeping your job by all means necessary then you can be very comfortable in this company. Good for people at the end of their career.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities for ambitious people. Nepotism is tolerated, favoritism trumps merit. very high employee turn over.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with the team below your pay grade and hire the genuine professional with real world experience. Take feed back from employees and act upon it. keep tighter financial control.

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

    Pros

    Crius is a great place to work, learn and develop for young people at the early stage of their career because company is a start-up and you can learn many basic and fundamental technics in every area: technology, marketing, sales etc.... The working environment and atmosphere are pleasant. People are really nice and friendly including management.

    Cons

    Not ideal for someone with advanced skills. This might be because being a start up company, the focus is on building the foundation, straight out the noise.... not many area you can utilize advanced skills.

    Advice to Management

    Good job so far, but get down to the ground and put hands on the real work.
