    I worked at Enel X full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Solid culture - Smart people at the rank-and-file level - Opportunity to work with a range of technologies

    Cons

    In nearly 4 years at EnerNOC, we've watched the executive & product management teams make bad decision after bad decision, completely unperturbed by any amount of doubt at any point. There was basically never any evidence that the company's attempt to break into the SaaS energy analytics market would be successful. Despite this, the executive team allocated nearly the entire engineering organization to work on "EIS", to the neglect of the other side of the business (which customers actually want to pay for.) When this failed repeatedly, the product leaders were awarded and/or promoted, while massive swaths of the engineering team were laid off.

    I worked at Enel X full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    EnerNOC has an excellent product to offer customer. They have deep knowledge of energy markets, they have an account management team built to service existing customers, and they have relationships with the major grid operators to maximize their benefits to customers. A lot of smart people work at EnerNOC, and they strive to be the best. Still a good place to make money.

    Cons

    Mission has slipped over the years. They won the DR marketplace but placed a huge bet on becoming a software company and that didn't work out. They could be sold. Many good people have left, management needs to find a compelling mission for the company going forward.

    I worked at Enel X full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Smart people, strong teams, great location in the Seaport , interesting focus on triple bottom line wins for the company, customers, and the world, broad international impact

    Cons

    Actively restructuring the business, low growth potential outside DR side of the house, "the biggest start up you'll ever work for" means carrying massive overhead for very entrepreneurial groups, without find the efficiencies needed to manage clean processes of a larger company

    I worked at Enel X

    Pros

    Passionate about the business and the view that EnerNOC can change the way the world uses energy. Strong investment in sales tools and process. Smart people when it comes to the market and sales methodology.

    Cons

    Unrealistic ramp-up and self-sufficieny expectations considering market maturity. Plenty of support in the late stage of the sales process, not enough when it comes to demand creation and getting customers engaged in a buying conversation. Very frustrating for new enterprise BDM's unles you are fortunate enough to get engaged in deals that have some momentum. Too many BDM's - not enough demand to support them.

    Intern - Monthly in Dublin, Dublin

    I worked at Enel X for less than a year

    Pros

    Great bunch of smart people working in the Dublin office, easy to get along with, super welcoming and was given real work to do and a lot of responsibility, great benefits too and lots of social outings

    Cons

    Work is very specialised as the company focuses a lot on processes, it might not be the best place for someone to learn new technical skills unless working as a software developer

    I have been working at Enel X full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    EnerNOC has some smart people, a good culture, and a great PTO policy. We work hard, but not too hard. My work life balance is great right now, but I don't work out of the Boston office, so it's hard to say how things are there. I was part of an acquisition, and the transition was smooth and easy for me. I can't say the same about other people in other departments. Free snacks and drinks. Ability to work remote (on occasion) is a huge plus.

    Cons

    The heath benefits could be a lot better. Recent layoffs have some people on edge. Pushed out (not fired) a lot of great people during the integration process after we were acquired. Seems like the company is losing a lot of good people. Over use of interns.

    I have been working at Enel X full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    EnerNOC employs lots of smart people, experts in energy as well as in business. These people are very driven and have a great deal of energy that they apply across the company.

    Cons

    Rather than a meritocracy, your potential for upward mobility is based on whether you have a Tuck (Dartmouth) MBA. Secondarily, EnerNOC will consider Harvard or MIT, but that's about it. Public universities need not apply, no matter how smart or accomplished. In addition, the company is going through an identity crisis. EnerNOC wants to be a high tech firm, but was not raised as such. Just saying that you are a software provider when the vast majority of your work/revenue is Demand Response just confuses your customers, your investors, and your staff.
