    I worked at Enphase Energy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great co-workers, devoted to the mission and customers, who had fun to revolutionize an industry.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, that was before we had serious competition and the market commoditized. The old executives had not prepared and were shown the door, while the new guard arrived with consultants in tow. Necessary and painful adjustments followed, while many of the best (and worst) employees decided to go.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie (a/k/a make promises you can't keep) to employees. Don't imagine you can offshore software to India without significant cost (schedule, quality).

    I have been working at Enphase Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Enphase is developing products that will change the world (grid-agnostic systems, integrated module & storage, etc.) Things move quickly and you will have the ability to provide your insight into e-staff & SR. leadership. Very competitive comp plan considering there are only (2) likely options in the market that a customer would or could use.

    Cons

    Yes, you will be expected to work... hard. If you are not a fan of knowing your market, understanding your customers/competitors, strong attention to detail, and clear ability to forecast your sales numbers, Enphase is not likely the best place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue working on the culture initiative. It's clear that we have work to do in terms of ensuring we have a happy & healthy work environment.

    Pros

    Smart intelligent seasoned employees. It was a really great product at one time.

    Cons

    New management has decimated product quality and treated experienced employees with disdain. Upon opening a new office in India, they said, "Don't worry, you won't lose your jobs to India", but we lost our jobs to India. Right after they said "Quality over revenue", they decimated the Quality department and processes. They don't know the difference between managing a part and an assembly, they took months to figure...

    I worked at Enphase Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is a lot of good work that can be done with all the Ip that the company has. It should have be bought by some big company , as in acquisition or high stocks.

    Cons

    Very very poor management decisions by some Senior Directors and the company CEO which led to the downfall of this company. I would never recommend any one to work there .

    I worked at Enphase Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay was OK, but not worth the meat grinder.

    Cons

    Where to start - don't care about employees. Greed and money are driving factors. Layoffs, terrible morale, terrible leadership. Sweatshop. Use people up and discard them like rubbish.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves, you're doing a horrible job. You have no idea what you're doing. You lay everyone off and then whoops - we need all those people. You are clueless. You have no business running a public company.

    Great product and innovative solutions. Good marketing team.

    Cons

    Management has no clue what is reality in sales, and don't understand customer base. Set unrealistic expectations. No guidance or direction.

    Listen to field staff. Support field team with resources and realistic sales goals.

    Pros

    Profitability improved significantly after new management took office in 2017. Long term growth plan approved by market. Good products to support long term growth.

    Cons

    headquarter move from Petaluma to Santa Clara made a lot of valuable employees to leave. It is not clear how much the impact would be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep key employees and build a strong team.

    Pros

    Enphase used to be a wonderful place to work. It is not any longer.

    Cons

    The company has become bogged down in VP's and executive management that are so out of touch with the employees it's laughable. The company is crumbling from within, but no one at the top seems to care. No female leadership, no integrity, no processes are secured as they move everything to India. There is little to no chance for advancement in the US offices.
