Franklin Energy Small company trying to be big
OPERATIONS ANALYST (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 1, 2016
Overall this company has grown leaps and bounds but sometimes growing that fast leaves a lot of pain points. Due to this the work/life balance and compensation is low. Constant management changes can be good but can also hurt those who want to work with certain managers but can't due to advancement or relocation.

To make it great again keep focusing on employee growth and less on growing the company and this will become the greatest place to be.
Pros
flexible work schedule/locations, understanding managers
Cons
low pay for the positions

Great environment to work
Outreach/Field Technician (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 18, 2015
Start off in the office for a quick meeting with my manager, discuss daily activities for the day; time management priorities, what needs to be accomplished for the day.
New to the energy field, learned a lot, from when sale begins to end.
Management - I really only reported to my project manager on a daily basis. Extremely supportive, was a excellent mentor,
My reps / co-workers were hard working and supportive in all aspects of job.
The most difficult part of the job was completing or closing "all" tasks for the day. I always start everyday trying to close all business that day. That being said, I completed and closed 80-90% of business on a daily basis.
Best part was the environment, not micro- managed at all. Got the job done because I wanted to get the job done. My manager provided the vision and guidance to complete work without supervision. We were well appreciated for our work. Always exceeded goal.
Pros
Great environment to work / Great management
Cons
Healthcare options / more pay

Senior Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Denver, ColoradoMarch 16, 2013
Very worthwhile seven year experience working with Franklin Energy. Was a 30 person staff when I joined the company -- now growing beyond 350 staff nationally. An amazing growth experience to be a part of -- much experience and knowledge gained.
Pros
intrapreneurial, flexible, fast and fun pace
Cons
chronic short staffing -- behind the curve with people resourcing

Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  New Berlin, WIFebruary 27, 2013
I would love to give this company ZERO stars. The company is run by engineers not business people, they have no understanding of how to run a business nor do they compensate their workers for their suffering. Run Away!
