    I have been working at Ambit Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It is amazing how much I have learned since joining the IT department a few years ago. The world of Software Development moves fast and so does Ambit. I have seen several management changes over the years and I feel that they have finally got it right. There is an eagerness to get rid of red tape, challenge the status quo, and to genuinely do what is right for the company. There is a good vibe in IT right now.. things are happening.. lots of exciting buzz about new technology solutions and upcoming projects.

    The level of talent is high here. You will be surrounded by some very smart people who are eager to share what they know and help you grow.

    Management seems to get it and have been making positive changes. Everyone is empowered to be a leader even if it is not in your title.

    There is little to no politics in IT. Everyone comes to work to get stuff done. There seems to be a good balance between setting expectations, goals, and delivery dates and letting you get your work done without hassle.

    Oh, and the work life balance is great. For developers and QA, the work hours are amazingly flexible and most teams allow up to a 2 days a week work from home policy.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a job where you can sit on your laurels then this isn't the place. It's fast moving and demands excellence. Many times they have mentioned Google, Amazon, and Facebook as examples of where they want to get to IT-wise.

    IT does not promote on tenure.. they promote on skill. Some people do not like that and want to do the same job day in and day out and expect to still get promoted.. not here. People get promoted based on skill, aptitude, leadership abilities, and getting it done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you are doing. I am really excited about the direction the company and IT are making.
