    I worked at Next Step Living full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers are nice and most are very helpful

    Cons

    -mid level management is beyond description and their methods of "motivation" are to shame and embrass people - they "bill" themselves as this Eco friendly company that "cares" but all they do is burn and churn employees -what they say you will make $$ and what is the actual amount is very far off - they enforce working 6 days a week while saying it isn't mandatory but good luck if you don't

    Advice to Management

    Upper level management who actually seem to care really need to look at what is going on with their mid-level management's shady practices with their "training methods".

    I worked at Next Step Living full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of bright and committed people work there. Somewhat mission driven organization. Great concept of using energy efficiency and free services as a lead generation machine for a home improvement company.

    Cons

    Too many mistakes to attribute to "growing pains". Fixing poor customer service or doing quality work was not a priority. Sales growth and securing the next infusion of venture capital is the priority. Massive inefficiency causes price hikes that are only partially hidden by external program incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and take better care of your customers. Act like an organization that is worthy of the opportunity you have been given.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Next Step Living full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There is an ongoing, active learning environment - it's a great "out of college" job. If you're a working professional, I would only accept a position if you're desperate for work.

    Cons

    It's a disorganized environment, and they take advantage of their employees. Sales management constantly threatens the sales team if they do not make numbers (even when leads aren't assigned), and it makes for a cut throat/ uncomfortable aggressive work space. If you aren't competitive, you will not make it far.

    Advice to Management

    There is a lot of wasted potential and talent among employees.
