Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – October 8, 2018
I truly enjoyed my time spent working for Lime Energy. They make the office feel like a community. Management collaborates well with staff and staff works well together to reach common goals. My favorite company to work for in my career by far.
Great career started but, not good for advancement.
Service Technician (Current Employee) – Gahanna, OH – October 15, 2018
I have been a service technician at Lime Energy for 5 years. I have loved and hated working for Lime at times. However with each passing year as I gain more experience the less interested they seem in career advancement for me.I wear many hats at lime and always try do do the thing that will benefit the company yet it seem unnoticed at times. Culture is great for the construction department. Wonderful managers, well experienced, and good technicians. I have gained alot of usable experince at Lime energy but, also feel like I can do well in an advanced role for them but, that opportunity seems sparce.
Energy Service Representative (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – February 11, 2019
This company is the worst management by far that I have ever worked with. The field training is pretty much non existent and the Manager for the OH area doesn't even live in the state. Getting him to help is rarely ever something that will happen. He is demeaning and his ego and communication skills make his team frustrated and stand off ish. You are warned not to go to corporate with issues and if you do, you have a red X on your chest for the rest of the time you are employed.
Somewhat disorganized in leadership and strategic planning
ACCOUNT MANAGER FOR ENERGY ADVISEMENT (Former Employee) – New Jersey, North Carolina – June 13, 2018
Workplace culture somewhat positive, too much turnover with management and associates. Leadership needed to be more involved with day to day objectives. Over the years seems to have lost it's foothold with focus.
Energy Advisor (Former Employee) – Huntersville, NC – August 4, 2017
Expectations were to do assessment, get sale and move on. Was told you never go back to follow up with customer. Never felt management gave appropriate support to be 100% to all sales people to be successful. Didn't always sell the most energy efficient products and asked to cross sell product not trained on.
Plenty of freedom, benefits
Poor commission plan. Communication from management very slow.
Sales and Marketing (Former Employee) – Woodbridge, NJ – November 22, 2017
A typical day at work at Lime would include making cold calls to municipalities and small businesses to schedule appointments to have their facilities audited for energy savings. After that i would go and show them how they can benefit from just making a few upgrades in their lighting and also went over government funding available to them as a small business to help pay for the upgrades.
I learned how to be more energy efficient around my own home and how we can all do a little bit each day to lower our carbon footprint.
Management were young college graduates who at times lacked the focus to run a professional office setting.
For the most part the culture in the office was pleasant. However, i was on the road a lot and visited only 2 days out of the week.
Hardest part of the job was overcoming objections of skeptical customers. Although, i enjoyed the challenge and did not mind going back for a follow up if i needed to.
I enjoyed being on the road and meeting different professionals at multiple municipalities and see the different ways each one ran their operations.
Senior Application Analyst (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – February 3, 2016
this is a top down company and when a command is ordered, or even a whim of an idea, the workers are expected to create a frenzied effort. no predictable success measures. you'll do great if you're a clock watcher and never challenge your boss.
Remote office, independent work environment, smart people, great product, reducing the energy use of USA
No mentoring by managers, "More" not smart/better is the goal, No bonus structure and below-to-middle avg salary, top heavy, stagnant stock
Juniro IT Support (Former Employee) – California – March 14, 2018
Stressful environment, not my idea of day to day work. It felt as though regardless of how long and hard I work there was never an end, and also hearing your supervisor mention that I need to pick up the pace. Its just to stressful in my opinion.
Poor management, Unorganized, No where to advance.
Service Technician/Installer (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – January 7, 2018
The work as an installer was easy. But there is little to no training on the paperwork side of it. In my short time here they did several things that showed me it wasn't the place for me. For example, *Last minute mandatory Saturdays with no excuses to be able to not work, kids, family events, pre planned events, none of it matters to them. You have to work or a write up. *Lack of organization. You have several people pulling you in different directions and everything is an emergency and needs done immediately. *Pay is not very good for what is required as a service tech. As a tech you are really doing what I would say is three peoples jobs for not very good pay. I was a tech for a different company, made more and did way less than what they require here. *Poor management ( why I quit ). Received A write up from the foreman for no call no show when i talked to him that morning and worked that day with a co-worker. No one could explain how that is possible. Upper management did nothing and they kept saying "its just a write up". In my opinion the foreman had it out for me and was looking for anything at all and upper management didn't want to do anything about it. *Some Bottom line I would not suggest anyone I know to work here.
Company vehicle, Few decent co-workers, work mostly alone.
Poor management, Poor training, Poor pay, No where to advance with these managers.
