    high pressure sales tactics and unorthodox methods of manipulating clients to commit to sales and energy plans that are found in other industries as well.

    Pros

    Upper management has a vision that should lead to success. The organization is in a constant state of growth which leads to many opportunities.

    Cons

    Growth and speed are the game winners. A long as you can facilitate these two things its ok to not have integrity, to create a solution that is not well thought out or tested. Do more with less sometimes comes with a steep price.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have an amazing vision for the future, however, you do not often share that vision internally. Every person should know that direction and the goal, from the top director to the entry call center person. Find ways to share the vision and motivation you give to the consultants with your internal team.

    Pros

    Some great people, overall commitment and enthusiasm. Not mega-corporate.

    Cons

    A bit clique-ish. Layoffs are common and seemingly random. Some politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seems like people lower on the corporate ladder don't have much of a voice.

    Good Pay, Bad Work-Life Balance

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Dallas, TX
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Dallas, TX

    I worked at Ambit Energy

    Pros

    Salary is higher than average.
    Good scope for career advancement
    Startup environment, hands-on access to IT projects.

    Cons

    Work-Life Balance is really bad. Be prepared to slog extra hours on all weekdays and also some weekends. If you are a working mom it is really difficult to leave office early before 5 pm.
    Work from home option is provided but on a very limited basis to select employess only.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee retention will be higher with better work-life balance esp. for working parents.
