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

    Pros

    Enphase was one of the best companies Ive ever worked for and Ive worked for a lot of companies. The people are great, the location is beautiful, and their product will do nothing less than save the world.

    Cons

    Enphase has struggled with cash flow impeding their ability to to achieve profit velocity. The only real Con is I would be very sad if Enphase was not the company to bring these amazing Microinverters to market.

    Advice to Management

    I have a lot of faith in TJ Rogers and that he has taken on Enphase is very exciting. I know its probably a drag that you needed to dig deep for cash, but I like that TJ is on board and expect great things coming from Enphase in the future.

    I worked at Enphase Energy full-time

    Pros

    Good industry, nice to work in greentech in Petaluma

    Cons

    The company lost focus, made some bad decisions and moved to slowly when the market shifted - now they are struggling to keep pace and risks becoming entirely irrelevant

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the core product and try to regain ground in the tech/cost battle, or give up the battle and try to monetize your current position via licensing/acquisition/liquidation

    I worked at Enphase Energy full-time

    Pros

    Approachable leadership and progressive culture. Relentless positivity from key team members.

    Cons

    Lack of winning vision. There is no shortage of vision...just an overabundance of competing and misguided visions.

    Advice to Management

    It's really too late. Some aggressive risks should have been taken years ago to avoid the death struggle with their key competitor. I hope you are taking risks like there is no tomorrow, because there may not be.
