    Cons

    Due to the flat structure, combined with some rash or poor higher level management decisions made by the CEO...certain employees have been known to take significant advantage of the system in place leading to a frustrating team environment at times. Real accountability through most business lines is lacking especially in this fast moving company. CEO has also been known to threaten legal action and enforce non-compete...

    I worked at Customized Energy Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Absolute transparency, from financial status to company goals / performance are given quarterly, and available to all employees. The managers I was in contact with were open with their objectives and clear on their expectations. Managerial support was available 24/7 without negative repercussions for the sometimes common 3am calls. Whenever I had an idea, question, concern or constructive criticism, it was met...

    Cons

    The pace of a slightly younger company with the growth rate of CES can overwhelm some. On boarding of new clients is often a vary expedient process and requires a lot of addition support from all levels of staff. If this doesn’t seem like something you would enjoy, it may still be the only “con” I can make you aware of.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to continue to rely on your key subordinates for insights to efficiencies and avoidance of errors. This was a strength that the CES leadership had and should continue to exercise.
