    I worked at Energy Trust of Oregon full-time

    Pros

    One of the best places to work on clean energy: effective, collegial and creative.

    Cons

    Communitarian office culture places highest value on alignment/ agreement and ensuring that no one loses face. May not support or reinforce the highest achievers, people prone to disagreement, change agents.

    Pros

    Great group of people who are motivated to make a difference in this field. Very free to set your own pace and feel like your voice is heard during meetings.

    Cons

    This job isn't the best for Type A sorts. Most people here are introverted and have their own pace of doing things. This is a GOOD thing, but not a great cultural fit for everyone.

    I have been working at Energy Trust of Oregon for less than a year

    Pros

    Positive environment, value work life balance, and very smart and capable people

    Cons

    Since the company has a set number of full time employees that they can have at any given time, it can be hard to move up. It can also be a bit lonely for younger employees or contractors.

    I worked at Energy Trust of Oregon full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The people, transparency and mission - providing the opportunity for your work to make a difference.

    Cons

    Everyone identifies their own "cons" for any work environment, the difference here is you'll have the opportunity to communicate, work on or work out the Cons that you find.
