Employee Reviews


  • “Work/life balance is a HUGE priority for management. The hardest part is not overloading high performers. When mistakes are made, it becomes a meaningful issue for senior people and is discussed at length to minimize in the future. It is a constant balance of client needs and the wellbeing of employees. Because management is judged on how junior staff are managed, wellbeing is discussed very openly at every level.”
  • “This is not a face time shop. Fridays are work-from-home optional, and people are respectful of family emergencies, weddings, and other time off situations. However, protected weekends and vacations can get disturbed at times, so you need to be clear about the importance of time off for you.”
  • “Our culture is very strong and translates across offices/geographies. There is a consistent theme of caring about clients and that results in caring about team members as well. The downside can be that caring about clients eats into personal time, but that is inevitable in this line of work.”
  • “Protected time from 6 p.m. Friday to 2 p.m. Saturday. We are neither encouraged to or discouraged from using vacation time.”

Getting Hired Here


  • “There are typically two phone interview rounds (including a technical interview) ahead of the Super Day. Within a couple of days, the candidates receive feedback. Ideal candidate is interested in finance and energy, genuine, curious, and open-minded. Background and education in finance or energy is not a requirement but a bonus—you are expected to be prepared for the interview but also learn on the job, not know everything there is about energy.”
  • “Zoom/phone calls followed by team Super Days (in-office, in-person, 30-minute discussions with each team member), then a follow-up lunch/dinner. Ideal candidate is passionate, creative, and responsible.”
  • “Interview is challenging but ensures the right fit. Callback is fast and very welcoming. Ideal candidate is passionate about energy, smart, hardworking, a self-starter, and entrepreneurial.”
  • “Ideal candidate is smart, driven, nice, honest, passionate about energy, articulate, curious, and highly intelligent. Our job requires an ability to learn quickly vs. a highly technical skillset.”
