    Pros

    It is a green company with a focus on low carbon energy and services! Strong leadership, excellent work environment, white canvas to add value.

    It is working in silos towards a more focus centered approach. It will take time, effort, and accountability. I am ready!

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at ENGIE North America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    ENGIE operates in many markets so good opportunities to expand experience to other cities' customer's and utilities. Fellow staff in the Norwell office are supportive, engaging, and helpful. Many other positive aspects of the former Opterra's culture was undone when ENGIE took over.

    Cons

    Little communication between the many smaller companies that ENGIE has acquired over the last few years, despite having major business objectives being dependent on this collaboration. Travel policy implemented recently by ENGIE corporate is inconvenient & reasonable expense reports were regularly send back by corporate. Sales & engineering teams not on the same page resulting in customers receiving free engineering work from us, it is mainly a lighting retrofit focused company that struggles to comprehend mechanical work.
