    - Opportunities in international subsidiaries (we are present in more than 30 countries)
    - New facility
    - Great work life balance except in few weeks during the year

    Cons

    - Competitive environment to grow in, only the best ones can advance

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing this reality!

    I have been working at Enel full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Location in the Seaport District
    Benefits are decent
    Local management is at least trying to "fix the mood"

    Cons

    * Poor product leadership

    * Seriously poor communication from Enel to the EnerNOC employees they bought over a year ago... still...

    * Every meeting that's held to convey the "vision" to the employees ends up being an hour of "yay us" fluff with no substance.

    * There's no BA's to properly document the needed work.

    * All of the project managers have quit.

    * Everyone's still unsure of how to deal with the folks from Italy, so they spend most of their time "managing up" rather than trying to drive the company forward...

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with substance, and hire competent product and project management types... then get outta the way and let them do their jobs.

    I have been working at Enel full-time

    Pros

    Enel is a great place to work. In the control room there is a sense of comradery due to the relative isolation of the job. The floor plan is the open model but the control room is an enclosed space due to regulations. The hours are very good (rotating shift work) but not great if you have a family or loud roommates. I get paid overtime yet feel like I'm never at work.

    The cafe is amazing. I mean seriously they throw down in the kitchen and the prices are reasonable for the quality (~$5-$8 lunch). There are free coffee machines with just about everything you can imagine.

    Cons

    Located just off I-495 the traffic can be pretty bad, especially if you live in/around Boston. Enel is expanding all the time, which is a PRO, except sometimes your job description adapts to fit the companies needs.

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

    Pros

    - Favorable WFH policy and flexibility
    - Summer hours (office closes at 2:00 PM on Friday during summer months)
    - Brand new office space (opened in Feb. 2017)
    - Interesting industry

    Cons

    - Upper management within AFC is unprofessional, at best, and verbally abusive, at worst.
    - Oversight from Rome pretty much renders the local job functions pointless
    - Long hours (people are in the office past 8:00 PM regularly. I also know about certain teams that have worked 60+ hour weeks for weeks at a time)
    - Nepotism as a result of Italian upper management taking care of their own

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

    Pros

    Nice new office, free coffee, summer hours, decent tele-commuting policy if your boss supports that.
    Seems to be a good group of people that work there, people passionate about renewable energy and trying to make a difference.

    Cons

    Very old-fashioned recruiting, very slow and disorganized hiring process, lack of onboarding, matrix style reporting relationships and Enel's Global policies cripple North American operations with their complexity and lack of applicability in the US. Seems to be an overabundance of people in Engineering & Construction and not in the departments that ultimately end up with an operational site (Operation & Maintenance, Safety, Procurement)
    Very outdated policies and benefit allowances/ contributions on 401k (hardly a match) vacation (starts people @ 2 or 3 weeks) / sick / PTO / Maternity. Laughable to companies like Google, Netflix, Facebook, etc.
    Very limited job potential as many positions are magically filled with Italian people from HQ who are trying to progress in their careers, limiting mobility within, even laterally. There is a HUGE nepotism issue at the US location.
    Some people are NOT competent, or qualified for the positions they fill, and they occupy a position based on who their spouse is.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. You are losing good people, and will continue to lose more.
