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

    Pros

    You are treated like a full-time employee with important responsibilities. Health insurance available. Lovely office space and resources. The company truly encourages internal networking and a work-life balance.

    Cons

    Interns should be paid more and should be granted commuter benefits as well.

    Pros

    Smart/relentless teammates Great place to launch an energy career Sweet office Good benefits Work life balance good in specific roles EnerNOC was a great experience for a lot of people

    Cons

    Numerous reorgs/layoffs have left the bright/relentless/good EnerNOC employees feeling unsupported/paranoid/stuck Leadership communicates with the field in one direction- which is rarely positive Little focus on customer experience leaves sales people often making excuses Internal politics drive every decision, from small, to large

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

    Pros

    - Mission to change the way the world uses energy - Cool office and good location - Smart and competent coworkers, mostly friendly - Pretty good technology, for the most part - Solid legacy business (demand response) - Good work/life balance and unlimited holidays

    Cons

    - Massive investment in other verticals (mostly software) led to losses, because the market was not "ready", and massive layoffs as a result (+ "planned attrition"). Employees take the hit while c-suite goes on almost like nothing happened. - Terrible transition with no clear vision from above on how to repurpose the software that was built. - Culture and mood took a serious hit, offices feel mostly empty. Even Fooda (restaurants) stopped coming to sell lunch! - Forget about company-paid activities / parties / lunches / perks ... overall, employee well being doesn't seem to be a focus anymore. - Mostly sink-or-swim attitude towards newcomers. No formal training, no mentoring, just figure stuff out. - With the current low cost of energy and political background, I don't see the business going much better.

    I worked at Enel X full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - There are a few decent people still working for EnerNOC - Working from Home office

    Cons

    - EnerNOC used to be about the people that helped them become the biggest aggregator in the world, now its all about discarding loyalty. - Cutbacks. The employees are paying for the huge mistakes made by the current leadership yet none of that same leadership is paying the price. - Horrendous management. There are Managers in charge that have zero people skills and are simply in it to rake in as much capital as they can before the cutbacks hit them. Backstabbing is part of the norm. - Reorganization after reorganization after reorg. They cannot make a plan and stick with it longer than a few months...none of the changes work. - No clarity on changes that are made to existing staff. Its all about wallowing in the mud trying to find a team or person that can help or work with you. - No work/life balance at all. Lots of huffing and uffing about how the company gives unlimited PTO, in essence there is rarely any time to take off without massive guilt trips.

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

    Pros

    1. Nice office on the Seaport (sorry, "Innovation District") in Boston. 2. Free fruit. 3. It's a good work/life balance and the benefits, except for medical/dental, aren't horrible. 4. They struck gold with the demand response business and it's bringing in a lot of cash. 5. Unlimited time off policy.

    Cons

    1. This is not a software company, it's a demand response company with value-adds (bill management and procurement). If you are a software engineer, look elsewhere. 2. Product leadership does zero research into what can actually generate revenue and are surprised when they end up broke. Whatever they seem to get with #4 above, they blow on bad decisions made inside of vacuums. 3. Even after the layoffs, the same core senior leadership team is intact, save for a couple of people. So the same captains are still steering the ship. 4. Dishonesty/obfuscation from the top-down. Layoffs came out of nowhere for a lot of affected employees, primarily due to everything about the business being communicated, even immediately prior, in an overly positive and rose-colored manner. 5. The under-culture of this place is just nasty. Never in my career have I seen so many charlatans posture and pontificate onB various subjects, while simultaneously doing absolutely nothing, only to end up being rewarded for it in the end. 6. They have Cigna for health insurance which is pretty bad if you actually have to use it.

    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.
