    I have been working at EnerNOC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are ambitious and want to work with others that are at the top of their game then EnerNOC is the place for you. They recognize talent and you are judged on the merit of your work. Your ideas are always heard and if you can impact the organization for the better you will be given an opportunity to do so. To change the way the world uses energy, EnerNOC brings together some of the best talent I've seen. It is nice to be apart of something that is so inspiring.

    Cons

    Not that it is a con per se but change is something you should anticipate. New programs and offerings are constantly being uncovered and as such the organization needs to be very nimble.

    Pros

    Great place to work, people within your department are wonderful. Being in the heart of the Seaport is exciting!

    Cons

    Poor Management, EnerNOC was recently acquired by Enel. They brought on VP contractors for integration purposes and they are making horrible detrimental decisions. Wonderful employees who added wealth to the company are leaving or being let go due to bad decision making. Integration should be handled by current long standing Enel management not morons that they found off the street who happen to be of Italian decent and claim vast experience when actually they do not.

    Advice to Management

    Enel management in Rome needs to open their eyes and be more involved with what's going on. Your contracted VP's will run the company into the ground and you'll lose more and more valuable employees because of it.

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

    Pros

    The medical benefits I had were not terrible

    Cons

    This place has no idea who or what it wants to be. They hire people into leadership roles who are unable to manage people or create a vision for the organization. It was incredibly stressful working here as the expectations of the job continued to change almost quarterly however the direction or necessary tools to achieve were not provided.

    Advice to Management

    Have an idea of how you can accomplish goals and try using the basic SMART template before creating unrealistic targets to screw over your employees

    I worked at EnerNOC full-time

    Pros

    Honestly, there were none. These guys evangelize how they want to save the world and make it greener. These poor young people believe it and they put up a facade like they care. Meanwhile, these guys care only about themselves. They set sales goals super high so nobody can reach them and then make them work like 70 hours a week. Talk about taking advantage of young peoples genuine desire to work hard and do well for themselves and society. Actions speak louder than words and if you look closely you will see this place is really terrible.

    Cons

    Management acquires businesses and has no idea how to run them. They have very junior staff in management positions and their ego's are extremely large. Ever work for a company who thought they were super smart and meanwhile nobody knows whats going on? This is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Try align interests with staff. Stop taking advantage of employees and when they want to quit, let them go in peace and have a career with a future elsewhere

    I have been working at EnerNOC full-time

    Pros

    -Unlimited PTO
    -Great industry to be in

    Cons

    -Very little job growth or moving around, even for top performers
    -Unclear expectations from management
    -No visibility into leadership decisions or motivations
    -Under-performers will succeed if they're friends with the right people/have seniority
    -Everything revolves around seniority -it's so weird and old-fashioned
    -No penalization for rudeness, inappropriate behavior to others, bullying even when reported to management
    -Easy for people to get away with things if they have seniority

    I worked for the company before it was acquired, but there were many problems and I doubt they've been resolved. It's easy for people to turn a blind eye when their jobs aren't directly affected, especially when the HRBP is understaffed and over-worked.

    Advice to Management

    Take control of your people. Take care of the good ones, let the bad ones go. It's quite simple. You create a really difficult place for people to work when you show them how little you care about them.
