    Pros

    Totally flexible work schedule, make your own. If you are good at getting people to sign up as consultants beneath you , you could go really far. If you get motivated and ambitious people beneath you they sign up people and the cycle goes on and on, and you potentially make the big bucks.

    Cons

    Multi-level marketing sales, and you have to have so many consultants beneath you to actually make good money. I was a 'Regional Consultant' and I made diddley squat. Now my old customers are complaining of high electricity prices so I have to cancel their service.

    Advice to Management

    no advice


  3. I am blessed to have grown so much while working with Ambit

    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 Management

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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