      Pros

      The company had a positive work atmosphere with pro-team mentality. Lots of opportunity for advancement in the early years. It's a great place to start your career off in the Energy Space.

      Cons

      With all large corporations/companies, there were a lot of changes going on as the company grew. If you're not accustomed to a lot of changes in the workplace it might not be the place for you.

      Pros

      Great mission and reasonable pay

      Cons

      Management team is completely disconnected from reality- and each other. Sales management is structured as a regime, starting from the VP at the top, on down. Morale is the worst of any company I've ever worked.

      Pros

      - Some talented, helpful & approachable co-workers - Working from home readily accepted; the assumption is you do not need micromanaging and you will get your work done. - Vancouver office easily accessible by public transit. - Options for training & occasional travel (if you're friendly with the right people). - As mentioned in a previous review, it's a decent 9-5 job, but the general attitude of both employees and management seems to be "meh"

      Cons

      - The flat management hierarchy is supposed to encourage "meritocracy", but the reality is that only people with political connection, social capital, access to management and a loud voice have their ideas heard. Ideas that challenge the status quo are welcome here in name only. If you want to be heard and make a difference for the better, go elsewhere. - Adequate management & team coordination is sorely lacking. Self managing teams are supposed to organically coalesce and function efficiently. Ample evidence to the contrary is routinely ignored. - Paths to promotion are poorly defined and subject to political maneuvering rather than talent. Opportunities for professional advancement are sparse and grudgingly dispensed. - Salaries below market average for Vancouver. - Substandard workspace for half the Vancouver office. If you attend an interview, you get taken to the floor with the kitchen, big windows & shiny desks. Most of product development is on the floor with poor ventilation, poor lighting (esp in winter), non-functional kitchen, loose wires, broken chairs & forgotten filing cabinets.

      Wonderful company with a great mission

      Pros

      My job at EnerNOC is the most enjoyable I've had in my career. The people are high-calibre and are united on a mission I care deeply about - to change the way the world uses energy. I would highly recommend EnerNOC to friends as a place to work.

      Cons

      The company is in a period of transition having acquired several companies and rapidly expanding the software business. This is a great challenge and environment for those that are up for it but there are still many details to work out.

      Pros

      The Vancouver office is full of young, interesting people who are all very similar so it creates a cohesive social culture. Flexible schedules, no micromanaging and generally relaxed atmosphere to work in.

      Cons

      Unless you have direct links to Boston I'm uncertain of how to progress your career in the Vancouver office. HR seems a bit clueless about what "remote" employees value despite attempting to demonstrate otherwise. The utility product has a long way to go.

      Pros

      Leading technology in an innovative and relevant industry Industry has a tangible and direct impact Industry and products are so varied and expansive that there are numerous avenues to grow your career.

      Cons

      Industry can be misunderstood Acquisitions have caused some confusion in the processes and goals with duplication of design and effort. While the corporate culture is very vibrant is does seem disjointed between teams.

      Great people, meaningful work

      Pros

      If you are a do-gooder like me, but still want to work in a field that deal with real solutions to the world's environmental problems, EnerNOC is a great place. Our Vancouver office has a great culture, people understand the connection between personal health and professional performance. The distance between management and workers is short.

      Cons

      Pay. Canadian pay does not live up to Silicon Valley standards for a UX/UI designer. Especially not in a place like Vancouver.

      Pros

      The development team has some great talent and a lot of fun and interesting characters. The office is extremely active with most people eschewing cars for bikes. The yearly office trip is a blast and the kitchen is always stocked with good snacks (which some people interpret as a perpetual free meal).

      Cons

      After EnerNOC acquired Pulse Energy, they revealed themselves to be a Boston-centric company despite being told otherwise. It can be challenging to establish your value and further your career from Vancouver. Revenue growth was a stifled due to a fragmented market, more established competition, and immature product-market fit. This may change as the product management team gains a bit more experience and starts listening to customer needs but it'll require some ongoing investment.

      Pros

      Young team of coders, data scientists and engineers. However, all this talent is being wasted working on useless products cooked up by MBAs lacking imagination and proper experience.

      Cons

      Promotions are not based on merit but on plain seniority and subduedness (exemplified by the extremely poor management of the data science team). Salaries are below average for Vancouver and are just unfair. Employees are paid the same absolute amount irrespective of their degrees and total working hours. Product development management sits in the same open space as coders and data scientists and somehow believes that their sheer presence ensures good leadership. However, this approach (the self-organizing myth another reviewer alluded to) failed in many occasions: people do whatever they want without any vision or direction. Furthermore, their understanding of energy efficiency and of the underlying statistical concepts is clearly lacking and lead to numerous failed programs.

      Pros

      There's enough flexibility, autonomy, perks, professional development and good honest people to make it a decent nine-to-fiver. The Vancouver office is well within downtown with easy access to food, entertainment, culture, beer and public transit. I don't have to wear a tie. Good fit for people of different age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation... a 'everybody's welcome' mentality. And there is almost more interest in health and fitness than work. <---That's not a bad thing.

      Cons

      But as a business...Honestly, I wouldn't personally use the products myself. In other words, its not that inspiring or motivating. Internal processes could be much better. Lack of professional advancement. Bottom line, this is a place you will easily grow out of.
