Business Development Associate (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – October 25, 2016
EnerNOC goes well out of its way to make the employees happy; whether that's free coffee/snacks, gym access, resources, benefits or just compensation. They pay well, come with a good reputation and the culture at OMP is great! Where they fall short is their mismanagement with company direction (i.e. we switched our corporate focus 3 times in my less than 1.5 years). I enjoyed my time there, but definitely felt there were some dodgy things happening in the background. I would definitely recommend the company, but don't get comfortable - things could change drastically, without any warning.
Free snacks, great location, amazing corporate culture, emerging markets & pioneers in their field
Poor management/communication, invested a LOT in a product when the market doesn't exist yet
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 28, 2016
I gave only one star for each category based on the recent massive layoffs that completely exposed the gross incompetence of senior management and their crass disregard for the adverse effects on so many who were only hired in the last two months. There were many new employees hired since July to work within the company's EIS offering. Unfortunately sales were slow and costs were high so they decided to cut hundreds including those who they recently lured away from other jobs and opportunities. Those people are left with one week's notice, upon which their insurance benefits expire and truly pathetic severance packages. These people were victimized by the company. Was senior management so incompetent and out of touch with the numbers that they would continue a steady stream of new hires? Or are they really that crass that they simply did not care about what they were doing to individual lives? Take your pick because in either case, they are not to be trusted.
Fast paced work environment that might lack experience
Manager of Manufacturing Operations (Current Employee) – Boise Idaho – July 8, 2015
EnerNOC is an extremely fast paced organization, but in some regards lacks critical experience. Most of the staff at EnerNOC are fresh college graduates which breeds a launching ground for these folks to the rest of their career (Not necessarily with EnerNOC long-term). This type of work force also lends itself to a lack of vested interest in objectives and goals and promotions to folks that may not be completely qualified.

You will quickly be an expert in any department you work in and will be treated valuably. It is hard to maintain a work/ life balance in some departments, however in others it is cut and dry. Ultimately I have had a great experience, and have been treated great since day one. My managers respect me and are always my advocates.
EnerNOC is growing fast and is not for everyone, but if you give it a try and have internal drive- you will NOT be disappointed.
free snacks, interesting benefits and incentives, down town boston, growing company
if you do not have internal drive or thirst this my be a hard match
Ive learned more in 13 months at EnerNOC than I ever imagined possible!
BDA- Inside sales (Current Employee) – Boston – March 19, 2013
I cant say enough about the great people! I cant speak to past but it appears the company has made a tremendous investment in ensuring the employees concerns were heard and working hard to create culture of people that are not ony challengd but rewarded and given the flexibilty to have the work life balance that was previously lacking. My goup in particular has a tremendous promotional rate- the inside sales team (BDA's) - truly a feeder pool for outside sales roles.
great coworkers, kitchens are filled with healthy drinks snacks, and almost always free lunch!
long hours, i was new to energy so ramp time longer than expected.
Project Engineer (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – April 26, 2012
I took this job because of grandiose talk during the interview about how they were going to make the world a better place and were excited to create green technology. After working there for a little while, I realized they only wanted mechanics that could add. Almost all of my time was spent in machine rooms or adding up kWhs on the computer. The company was so against using computers that almost everything we did had to be printed out numerous times. Any time a new idea was presented, it was immediately shot down by management, even if it had the potential of increasing productivity by a lot. Other companies will pay better and have you do less work in the industry. Everyone generally leaves within a year of starting here.
good medical plan, generally paid for lunches when your on site
very low pay, no advancement potential, no respect
Fast paced, challenging work, unlimited opportunity if you seek it out
engineer (Current Employee) – Boston, Ma – March 19, 2013
I was hesitant to join after some of the reviews online- i was pleasantly surprised to see that little of that actually rang true. YES it is a challenging environment but I was actually seeking that in y next employer! You are surrounded by talented people always willing to help (in my opinion). Also it may be cliche but it really is work hard play hard- my previous employers eliminate the "fluff" like social events, holiday parties, employee recognition awards- EnerNOC appears to be committed to keeping the entrepreneurial environment they set out with. Engineering has Innovation days that you only task is to come up with an innovative idea- regardless of topic- for a techie like m- that's a huge plus!
freedom to think outside the box, cross functional opportunities, fun!
high performance expectations for all, hours can be long, location (but new location is set for june '13)
Amazing culture , employees are some of the brightest I've ever worked with!
Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Boston – March 16, 2013
Interview process was very thorough but now I see why- the employees here are truly best and brightest. Many also have major accomplishments outside work- truly work hard play hard! As an Engineer was pleasantly surprised at the major investments company is making in technology!
working with cool tools, development opportunities, fun culture, financially stable, fully stocked kitchens!
Fast growing clean tech company well poised to lead in Energy Management
Business Development Manager (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – April 3, 2015
EnerNOC provides first rate demand response, procurement and energy management software. The company has doubled in size in the last few years and had few competitors in terms of track record, focus and quality/breadth of offering.
Youthful, talented and dedicated workforce in a promising sector
Fast rate of change and management focus, employees can be left at a loss as to company direction
Manager (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – December 5, 2013
EnerNOC is by far the worst company I have ever seen.. Everyone is a phony, hard charging type of clown that would push you in front of a train for a buck. Turnover is relentless, the work is mundane and management is useless. Rumor is that the idea for the company was stolen from another student at business school, like all good ideas.
Everyone says free lunch and snacks. Big deal but I guess you have to eat.
The people, the boredom. Hardest part of my job was staying awake long enough.
Great place to work, if you love an RND environment.
Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – April 1, 2013
It was a great place to work. Had an opportunity to research new and latest technologies. The co-workers are great and very supportive. I did not like though working alone, I am more of a team player. Management is great, and encourages new ideas.
