    I have been working at P2 Energy Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    P2 has some awesome people to work with! I'm constantly impressed by my colleagues and the dedication they put in their jobs. Benefits are decent, and the downtown Denver location is convenient.

    The leadership have some great ideas about where to take the software and what technologies to use.

    Cons

    Pay is far below market. Even in an aggressively low unemployment rate for skilled workers, bonuses and pay raises have been underwhelming.

    Despite great ideas, directives are half baked and management keep changing their minds.

    Even with all of that, the worse part is the terrible lack of communications between departments. It feels like everyone operates in their own silos and don't realize the cascading effect their changes can have on other departments in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, the CEO has the right ideas here. Focus on improving employee retention to keep the skilled people with P2 and work on collaboration across the entire organization.

    Pros

    Good pto, flexible hours, work from home

    Cons

    A lot married couples work together creating unfair favortism. Old coworkers don't want change and will do anything from hiding SOPs, tell you have bad of an employee you are, giving you projects that they only have info about then leave for vacation and up to trying to get you fired because you're outsourcing there job.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't want to go bankrupt by the end of 2018. Please retire the dinasaurs and hire some freshouts to build new software on the latest frameworks and java languages. Hold current employees accountable for there negative actions and replace the ancient database with sql.

    Pros

    Company is really focused on helping employees be successful. Several surveys a year are used to help ensure the voice of the employee is heard.

    Cons

    401(k) plan needs better funds to invest in.

    Thank you so much for your positive comment and for recognizing that we want to hear the "voice of the employee". I do want to clarify some information about the P2 401(k) plan. It currently offers ... More

    Pros

    The P2 Way is a great idea. Coworkers are smart and hard working, good peers. Most people have experience with the Upstream industry and know what they're doing. A good place to learn.

    Cons

    Hard to recruit because we were offering below-market salaries. CO based management out of touch with what was going on day-to-day in other offices. Easy to tell that investors are forcing growth so they can get their money out in a few years.

    Advice to Management

    Posters of company ideals are not a substitute for understanding what is going on at your company.

    Pros

    Vacation time is generous, if you stay 1 year you automatically get an extra 5 days of PTO and there are additional days to earn at 5 and 10 years. Give you a day to use for community service. Team feeling in general. Overall Good Benefits. Able to move within company.

    Cons

    The latest Board cares more about their dividends than company longevity. Software company with all their eggs in one basket ties their financial security to the price of Oil & Gas. One key team is a little rogue and doesn't play well with others which can create problems. They had a really good customer service attitude at one point, but upper management failed to walk the walk, therefore, some lower management stopped reinforcing customer service requirements/recommendations.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide good benefits. Be sure you understand how your team's dynamics REALLY work. I would like you to believe that retaining customers is a better investment than trying to find new ones. Should commission payments be amortized and tied to customer satisfaction scores?

    Pros

    Casual dress code, an eco-pass, and my manager is great. That's basically where it ends.

    Cons

    VERY high turn over and for obvious reasons. We lost our CEO, CFO, VP of HR, and the list goes on. They don't pay well unless you're a VP or an executive. Many of the managers treat you like you're beneath them. My particular department wasn't conducive of being collaborative, so "When In Doubt Talk It Out" was out the window. People seem to talk behind your back, and they definitely don't appreciate the hard work and long hours that are put in.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees and show some appreciation and respect.
