    "Turnarounds Take Time & Are Painful.."

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Echelon Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - People that have remained are for the most part engaged - There appears to be a path to success for the company - New sales force seems to be generating a lot of new projects and activity - Company is "right-sized" for the future

    Cons

    - Some old-timers that are not working hard still remain - Company could move a bit faster in all areas, too conservative especially for a Silicon Valley firm

    I have been working at Echelon Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I'm a bit shocked to see so many disgruntled folks who still work there. If you don't believe in it, why are you still working there? Anyway, company's going through a massive turnaround and making the right bets. Losses have been contained. Technology is solid and new IOT markets very are promising. Spending a lot on R&D for a company this size and retooled the Salesforce for new markets.

    Cons

    As with any turnaround, there's a lot of work and heavy lifting needed from everyone. New markets are still developing so lots of uncertainties buts that's to be expected.

    I worked at Echelon Corporation full-time

    Pros

    It's a paycheck, good work-life balance

    Cons

    Excessive negative politics, constantly terminating and losing talent. Very limited R&D$. CEO remains and collects $M bonus despite revenue and staff reduction of >50%, stock reverse split to avoid being delisted from Nasdaq. Current marketing and sales not winning new business. V. wealthy Board members don't seem to care ..

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Echelon Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Not sure if there are any. I have a job - I guess that's good. Still getting a paycheck.

    Cons

    Worst company I've ever worked for. A total bore to work at and you can just tell employees currently here just don't care anymore. I give us till the end of the year. How this company is still around is a big mystery to me.
