    I have been working at EnerNOC full-time

    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.

  3. "Fast paced and full of driven, young people"

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Really beautiful office overlooking the harbor.

    Cons

    There's no clear strategic direction for the software company other than we need to make smart software for the energy industry. There is a misalignment between what the users need and what we can provide. There's also an idea that mobile first is the solution which is very challenging and not true across the board for all the uses of the software. There needs to be a clear identification of what problems need to be solved and in what order, coming from the top, because right now it was solve everything, overspend, and then massive layoffs. They laid off 200 people after a massive initiative without much explanation except for that they were overextended and ahead of the market.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you're developing something users will pay for.

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

    Pros

    -Make friends for life in a post start up culture, solid camraderie
    -Wide spread of technology used, best tool for the job encouraged
    -Good career kickstarter for college students to build up their resume
    -Hip office in rapidly developing seaport area

    Cons

    -Late 2016 layoffs have left many teams across the organization fragmented.
    -As others note, compensation is on the low end for the industry. Younger employees tend to/are effectively forced to overwork themselves and are underpaid for their effort. Older employees are noticeably less engaged and are not motivated to pick up where their colleages left off, but also aren't really held accountable for such.
    -Needless politics get in the way often
    -People on the same teams rarely communicate. No-shows on meetings due to double booking are frequent.

    Advice to Management

    As many others note in reviews, management needs to review past mistakes, take away from the retrospectives, and focus on an agreed upon direction for moving forward. Departments need better communication across the organization(this does not mean countless time filler all hands meetings.)

    I worked at EnerNOC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Demand response is the flagship product/technology, and it's very cool. A very novel concept, and energy markets are incredibly interesting/complex - lots of on the job learning

    Cons

    Demand Response is becoming increasingly commoditized and margins ENOC commands on deals is decreasing in domestic markets.
