Energy Supply Management Analyst (Former Employee) – Remote – February 1, 2019
All of the team that I was a part of were professionals who worked from home with great autonomy. That was both the best and the worst part. A typical day for me was to log in to the computer, boot up excel, and work on the same spreadsheet that I had been working on for days as the work was very data heavy. The lower management was receptive when a problem was brought to their attention, although everybody working remotely sometimes made communication and interaction more difficult
Well compensated to work from home, entire team had long tenures
Very difficult to rise from the bottom rung, even with other industry experience
operate machinery which is always breaking down but expected to produce.I did learn how to operate machinery but feel the knowledge is limited to this job only.The management is very hard to get a point across to.There is no culture.
A lot of Ameresco work place culture (or lack of) is determined by the client, and specifically the client point of contact. I had both wonderful and miserable experiences; both open/sharing and closed/difficult.
Project Development Engineer (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – January 16, 2019
ameresco does not provide the hardware necessary for engineers to do their job, prefers to hire outside experience yet at times with the lack of knowledge, over advancing its own employees, management does not care work / life balance, that is a topic I never heard of in the many years I was there.
Good place to work. Management worked hand in hand with me to developt new business and to close it. Marketing was key component of position. Workplace culture was supportive and innovative. Hardest part of the day was long hours. Most enjoyable was meeting with customers and helping them define and implement energy saving strategies. Core product I was selling was funding energy related improvements and increased performance through energy savings.
Engineer (Current Employee) – Framingham, MA – November 6, 2018
Great company to work for. But it certainly depends which office and what your role is. I have no complaints about my immediate supervisors. If I didn't want to move, I would probably not leave the company.
Assistant Project Manager (Current Employee) – Framingham, MA – October 23, 2018
I appreciate the opportinities Ameresco has given me in advancing my career in the solar and renewable energy field. Ameresco has a highly professional work environment and is very team based. There is always someone to lend a helping hand if you need it.
Construction Project Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Bliss, TX – September 19, 2018
Even though I was only a temporary Employee, this company was a joy to work for. They hire competent people and trust them enough to manage themselves within reason. The management culture was always helpful and encouraging.
Shipping and Receiving (Current Employee) – Temecula, CA – May 24, 2018
The manager is completely lacking in training and does not know how to treat people with respect. Every single day I was talked to with the utmost disrespect and treated like I was less than human. There is no training for the job so you are forced to learn everything on your own, but if something was done in a different manner than how the manager wants it he will come over and make you do it again. Absolutely no upward mobility, this is a great job if you like being stuck at a dead end. I would never recommend this company to anyone.
Safety Manager (Current Employee) – South Carolina – May 10, 2018
The day starts at 6 am and goes to 5 pm. Like most people, the most enjoyable part of the day is quitting time. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the different personalities of several different managers on the same project, which makes the workplace very stressful
Environmental Compliance Manager (Former Employee) – Framingham, MA – April 26, 2018
The goals of this company, Green, Clean and Sustainable, are important to work for. Everyday tasks can inform you about running projects. Looking beyond your group can teach you about finance, dealmaking, business development, organization "politics," and renewable energy and accepted efficiency practices.
It is a decent work-life balance but not a ton of opportunity to move up.
Senior Data Analyst (Current Employee) – Walnut Creek, CA – January 14, 2018
I cannot review Ameresco because I worked in a smaller consulting group. It is a good work-life balance but not a ton of opportunity to move up. Not too stressful but the pay is not competitive at all.
In the begining work hours were abundant working at least 50hrs per week. As slow periods were coming in over time got very restricted. As lay offs began other company incentives became scarce and accountability was heavily scrutinized. Downsizing of branches and staff absorbing made it very competitive.
