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

    Pros

    Trust to handle a variety of work and responsibility. Some good co-workers.

    Cons

    Will be forced to do two or more person's full time job duties, when they lay them off or they quit because of the climate and work demand. Will not pay you more for doing two or three people's jobs and no overtime, but expect you to work off the clock to keep up. Will get harassed, demeaned and bullied for falling behind. Management and promotion is by sucking up to higher managment. HR colludes with Management and says and does nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear in expectations and assigned duties. Don't burn your staff to the ground to maintain profitability. Promote true, conscientious leaders, who care about and promote a healthy and balanced work atmosphere. Quit taking so many smoke breaks and follow up with your staff more.

    I have been working at EnerPath full-time

    Pros

    The company has a clear, green corporate mission. The people you work with are almost all reasonable people. No politics.

    Cons

    The benefits package is on the weak side, though it isn't terrible. The health plan was poor, but recently has been improving.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication among senior managers would reduce the amount of uncertainty in implementing the work of the company. It is not always clear who is in charge of each piece of work.

    Pros

    Working at Enerpath is one of the best and easiest jobs I ever had. You are essentially allowed to make your own schedule, you are not micro-managed, goals are minimal and if you put any effort into this, you can make a very good living. You get out of it what you put into it. You don't have to "sell" if you correctly present the idea of what you are doing to the customer. This is a program for them, it helps them financially and creates a better work environment for their employees. And, if you like being "green" you are helping the environment by reducing their energy usage.

    Enerpath provides the best software in the industry (no one else is even close) to help you do the audit and present the results to the customer. The software creates the presentation for you. It is very easy to use and simple to understand. It makes a very clear, concise report that can be easily presented and is easy for the customer to understand. Also important to people (especially with families)....Enerpath offers great benefits and has one of the best matching 401K's available. The whole concept of what you are doing, the tools Enerpath offers you, and the compensation that is possible, makes this a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Sometimes have to wait for new measures longer than you would like (not the fault of Enerpath)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to come up with new measures and incentives for customers AND employees.

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

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance with an amazing amount of freedom and flexibility with your schedule, unlimited potential to make a tremendous amount of money through commissions, contest, and bonus programs, great relationship with management team, a unheard of open door policy that is welcomed all the way up to the president of the company, a great pleasure to work with such talented and dedicated people in the corporate office, opportunity to work with the latest state-of-the-art technology and witness the constant release of new exciting products to help our customers, a culture of respect for people and continuous improvement is diligently practiced.

    Cons

    Between working with a conservative partner and the unfortunate bureaucracy, this sometimes slows down the release of new products needed in the field and stifles growth of the program.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees, especially your sales team who are the eyes and ears of your industry and company.

    I worked at EnerPath full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can make your own schedule. Can't think of much else honestly.

    Cons

    Very low pay, was 35,000. Looks like it has actually gone down based on reviews. Commission was horrible

    Advice to Management

    Pay people an honest, competitive wage

    Pros

    I came from a big company and had culture shock in a good way. Less red tape. You have access to upper management. You have the ability to help define your role. The company recently added an employee annual performance plan. We are in a growing field and the industry keeps changing. Very exciting.

    Cons

    Because I am so rule based, it was an adjustment seeing everyone how everyone has a voice. It is humbling but effective because everyone has a perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to show your interest in your employees comments.

    I worked at EnerPath full-time

    Pros

    Independent work environment allows for a good work/life balance. Strong bonus plan, though the salary is low for the field and commissions are minimal. Management is generally polite and pleasant. Easy sale to generally pleasant customers. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Revolving door sales people...extremely high turnover. Goals are high in an sales environment that does not allow for any repeat business. Installation contractors are mediocre, unpleasant in some cases and often seem to be in competition with the reps(if they upsell a customer during installation this counts, in company eyes, as an "error" leading to commissions being docked). Very limited and dwindling customer base with a small product selection to choose from. New product roll outs are few and far between, often confused at the sales and installation level leading to major customer complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent. Plan product roll outs better, and above all make sure the procedures and training predate roll outs.
