    Pros

    Great working environment and coworkers, the product excellent.

    It is a software company that is dependent on the workings of the HVAC/construction world, project time lines affected by issues out of the control of Optimum Energy.

    Pros

    - OE is a leading innovator in the HVAC/energy efficiency space; High growth potential as new products/services develop; there couldn’t be a more exciting time to be with this company
    - The most valuable part of my time at OE was the mentorship I received from the senior leadership team; my managers were eager to challenge and help prepare me for the next steps in my career
    - The people at OE are its greatest strength; incredibly intelligent staff that are passionate about what they do and also just wonderful people to be around. From the after work running club, to potlucks and game nights, this was a place and people I was eager to invest my time in
    - Well balanced work culture; as diligent and fast paced as it is flexible
    - Collaborative environment, supported by new open platform office space
    - Job responsibilities are dynamic

    Cons

    No cons of note beyond the fact that Optimum Energy is a growing company and still coming into its own.

    I have been working at Optimum Energy full-time

    Pros

    -Brilliant employees and subject matter experts across the board
    - Beautiful office in the heart of Pioneer Square
    -One of the strongest compensation/benefits packages in the state
    - Emphasis on constant learning and challenging convention
    -Great work/life balance mindset while being driven by passion by the product
    -Excellent PTO/Holiday Schedule
    -Values based culture that has been embedded into company products, processes, function, and recruiting.

    Cons

    Nothing at this time, but as the company is growing, employees need to maintain its strong culture of transparent culture across the organization to not develop too much of a "bubble" mindset between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Great environment and workspace, approachable management, transparent vision and goals, flexible schedules or WFH options

    Cons

    None come to mind. I guess if you don't enjoy and open office environment, this wouldn't be an ideal working situation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great benefits for health, holidays, and paid-vacation/PTO.
    Has made great leaps in strategic direction over the past 18 months - having become more disciplined and mature in its approach to business.
    Excellent place to be for folks who desire a smaller working environment and leading edge technology, within an organization forging ahead to make big changes in a very "old school" industry.

    Cons

    Needs to encourage teams at HQ to visit/participate in field activities (avoid death by budget/spend fear).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to help mentor current team members to discover new and interesting opportunities within the organization.

    I have been working at Optimum Energy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Holidays (so many of them!)
    Flexible work schedule if you get your work done, don't miss deadlines
    Truly amazing team of people, the people make the place
    Vision at the top, a lot of recent changes for the good
    Pretty solid benefits, not the best ever, but top 15 percentile
    Unbelievable location (historic, within blocks of every transit terminal/type)
    .....can't wait to see the new space!

    Cons

    I'm not sure I have actually seen one yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the positive reinforcement, the open dialogue and great vision.

    I have been working at Optimum Energy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A legitimate B2B software and engineering services company - not some smoke and mirrors startup. The technology really saves customers money and makes a big impact on the environment and I find that hugely motivating. Employees are smart, respectful and customer focused. Work life balance is good. The leadership is particularly strong and has clear, bold goals for the company.

    Cons

    Nothing to speak of thus far.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain a high bar for recruiting and stay the course strategically.

    I have been working at Optimum Energy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The friendly and kind nature of the staff and executives motivated me to pursue permanent full-time employment, from my consultant position with the company. The culture is warm, innovative, and exhilarating, with a dedication to the values and mission. The employee benefits exhibit obvious diligence in the value of each member of the organization.

    Cons

    Having only one item for this section, I am still unable to post, because the Con is solved with the company’s move to new office space in January.
