Operator (Current Employee) – California – 12 January 2018
Poor management, inexperienced managers with questionable ethics. Upper management disconnected from employees. Below average area pay. Clean plant with professional coworkers. Health care benefits get worse each year. Good place for young person to get hired and gain experience to move on to better company.
Poor management, dwindling health benefits, poor raises.
Management is horrible and backed up by corporate despite the inconsistencies, hypocrisies and flat out lies told by management. The turnover rate for employees at this company is unheard of in the industry and corporate doesn't question why or look into problems caused by poor management. If you are desperate for a job or inexperienced and looking to break into the industry this is a good place to start but DO NOT SETTLE! Granted there are a few good managers out there but the worst of them casts a huge shadow over the company with a corporate structure to back them up. Any employees who report to HR for questions or concerns about anything at all (including benefits, paperwork, training, etc) are not likely to get any response and if they do it is not in a timely manner. The business ethics are a joke.
It's a career builder
Poor pay for industry standards, poor benefits, poor leadership
Poor communication is the key factor for my dissatisfaction. Management will promise things they never intended on fulfilling. I would be given a task only to be thrown under the bus when management changed their minds.
Challenging. Able to gain a wealth of knowledge working at Ethos.
A Mechanic (Current Employee) – New York, NY – 26 October 2017
Ethos recently became the new owners, so I can only speak from the experience I’ve had with them, which is 5 months. This company pays well and offer an abundancel of Over time . It offers great benefits. You will learn how to work on boilers in a large magnitude. You will learn the basis function of a power plant and what exactly produces electricity. It is a good place to be involved in .

A typical day at Ethos Energy can be stressful, challenging, labor intense, mostly around the end of the month or when a customer pulls there return date in on a part but we can't return it because we are waiting on details.
Friendly enviornment with steady work flow management was very helpful and productive. I've learned more about a turbine and its components and to better understand how they operate. The best part of the job to me were my co workers as they were friends outside of work also.
N/A (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – 6 September 2017
With no clear path to success the company struggles to retain talent. They are in an extremely competitive industry and are fighting a losing battle. Top management has job security at the expense of middle management.
Hit hard by the downturn in the oil and gas industry. Highly reactive management. Very little leadership at the President level on up. Not a collaborative environment, more interested in assigning blame afterwards than working together. Not a lot of support or realistic expectations from management.
Bottom of the Barrel (Former Employee) – Farmington, NM – 6 July 2017
Job is really just about "walking on egg shells". Anyone can get laid off, come in one day and 2 hrs later your asked to sign a pink slip. No warning just give you a box and shoot you out back. Limited people so everyones workload is tripled for the amount of lay offs. Next week they hire new employees.
Company is run by incompetent mid-grade managers who were hired or promoted on the good ole boy network.
Lead Operator (Current Employee) – Herald, CA – 27 May 2017
Work life balance is poor as operations is shift work which is tough enough but worsened by poor scheduling by managers who don't care or understand shift-work work life balance. Overtime isn't paid for training when you come in off of your regular days. compensation is the lowest in the industry in our work area. Medical has been getting worse and costs are directed at the employee reducing total pay package. 401k match is decent, at about industry average. Job security is unstable due to instability of managers and varying execution of discipline policies. HR is incompetent and routinely doesn't answer questions with other than we will get back to you.
401k match, stable industry
Bad management, Poor work life balance, poor scheduling, Below scale wage, Constantly working under threat of being fired, Overpriced poor medical coverage
Onsite Project Manager/Repair Specialist (Current Employee) – Field Service – 14 May 2017
The future of this company is currently in limbo. Employees are unsure and uninformed about the direction it is headed. While it seems that work is coming in now, the rest of the industry is much busier.
