I enjoyed my stay at Pattern and would have liked to stay. The managers were hands off, yet supportive. I like what I do and I was successful in filling open positions.

Work Smarter, Not Harder
(undisclosed) (Former Employee) –  (undisclosed)September 6, 2015
Pros:
No shortage of amazing people with strong variety of industry experience in the lower ranks who know how to work hard.
Team tripled in assets and employees from 13 to 15.
Exec. Mgmt team is experienced with finance and development, has incredible network and strong relationships with vendors and partners.
Incredible financial story from private to public.
Strong and agile development pipeline that could be incredible with adjustments to operations model.
Hedged with vast range of locations for wind/solar performance.

Cons:
The deal-focused development culture with loose roles and responsibility has challenges with efficiency;
- Afraid of applying quality methods or standardization.
- Strong and talkative management personalities who have limited experience in the operating side of the industry, despite finance/development roots.
- Heavy email, slow decision making abilities, hesitant to empower and allow decision making.
- Strong risk aversion with complex policies leads to inability to quickly purchase or contract vendors.
- Unsure about long term future model and therefore unclear overhead plan, importance of ownership, etc.
- No cost strategies, no goal-based performance.
- Limited levers to make revenue adjustments due to reliance on wind or sun only.
- Leadership is openly more concerned about stock price than team building and developing cultural behaviors.
- No data or systems to use for making business decisions.
- Assets are very spread out and team has limited international experience to apply
- Executive, Construction, Operations
  more... and Development offices are not co-located and teams work in stovepipes and rice bowls between Houston, San Diego, San Francisco and dev offices.  less
