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

    Pros

    Very interesting industry and solutions. Cool technology. Felt cutting edge at times. Work hours reasonable. If you stayed under the radar and showed up, you tended to outlast people and get promoted.

    Cons

    Upper management was mediocre at best. Lots of turnover. Felt like a lot of people were just there collecting a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    reward employees who perform well. promote from within. hold management accountable for performance instead of individual employees who work hard.

    Pros

    you can learn a good deal of how the energy sector operates

    Cons

    The company is a very small player in the industry. It struggles to make profits and the growth of the company is mediocre at best compared to other companies. The management will try to convince you the opposite, but in the last 5-6 years the size has stayed the same. The profitability has improved only because they have learned to manage the workforce differently, meaning - every time the numbers are dissatisfying to managers and investors, the company sheds bunch of employees.
    The opportunity to grow within the company is low - you can move one level up if you are entry level or one level above the entry level, but for higher positions - they hire from outside. Because of all that, the moral is very low and there is a clear divide between the higher position and the lower ones. There is absolutely no respect of the executives and the higher positions towards the lower level employees.
    My advise to everybody considering starting with Prenova is do it only if there is no other alternative and if you start with the company, keep looking for another job.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating all your employees with respect and stop exaggerating in front of the prospect customers. That is why you are loosing so many of them.

    Pros

    Company is in a high growth industry (energy) and works with dozens of well know companies, mostly retailers
    Everyone works hard, but the company also adds fun events into the mix

    Cons

    Depending on your job, hours can be very long - many employees work more than 40 hours per week. Some work more than 50 hours per week.

    Advice to Management

    Company should find more customers in other industries besides Retail.
