    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.

    I worked at EnerNOC (More than a year)

    Easy to get in door.

    Unbelievable mismanaged and terrible G&A functions (hr, finance, legal).

    Find a new line of work.

    Pros

    Collaborative, fast-paced, interesting environment. A lot of complex challenges to solve on behalf of customers. Flexible work schedules and collegial atmosphere.

    Cons

    There isn't a clear development track and opportunities for advancement are not always readily available or evident.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employees, offer academic sponsorships, find ways to expand areas of responsibility.

    I worked at EnerNOC full-time

    Pros

    The worker bees are among the smartest people I have ever worked with. Great location.

    Cons

    They kept the people who were unable to turn a profit. They continue to make the same mistakes they made a few years ago. With very few exceptions, those just below C-Suite won't even answer an email to help you so you can help the customer. Every company has politics, but the politics here is beyond belief. Morale is awful, that's why people leave every week.

    Advice to Management

    When you start another company - which you will do - learn from your mistakes.

    Pros

    Plenty of young people, very energetic and fast paced place to work. Given a lot of responsibility early on in one's career.

    Cons

    Limited investment in people. Almost non-existent HR presence and haphazard, individual-manager driven promotion process.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. Great initiatives are only great depending on the people who work on them. It's easy to burn people out and not worth the loss of knowledge and productivity.

    I worked at EnerNOC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay in the past.

    Cons

    Fact: Stock has NEVER even been close to it's IPO after over 10 years public. No other employee could maintain employment with performance like that. Come on board, do your job. Egotistical management of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bleeding the company dry and listen to the employees.
