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

    Pros

    If you are willing to put in the hard work, you can easily affect the bottom line and get noticed for it. I've seen co-worker get promoted for being vested in the company. Like the CIO has said to me "You have a great idea, build it and let's do it!". No one is going to hold you back, innovation is what Ambit is all about!

    Cons

    Fast pace working environment which might not fit everyone.

    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.

    Pros

    Ambit works on practical system issues taking place in the energy industry...applying new technology to an old industry. The culture is very forward looking. The company has matured a lot over the years.

    Cons

    The company is coming off a really fast growth trend ... it is still maturing its processes, but I see it improving. I like the direction of the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Ambit Energy full-time

    Pros

    The company has grown incredibly since its inception and as such has been a great place to grow your career. If you like a fast paced environment and are unafraid of change, this is a wonderful place to be.

    Cons

    This is not the place for everyone. If you are just looking for a place to hang your hat versus a place where you can really be passionate about and leave your mark, this would not be a good fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing the things that have led to your success.

    I have been working at Ambit Energy part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    make your own hours, training and support from every area within the company, compensation package, helping others save money and earn money, NO SELLING, be my own boss

    Cons

    Must be self motivated and willing to push through the negativity and the rejection. Like any other job, people around you will be unhelpful and even try to drag you down, you have to be able to keep moving forward on your own and with your team and ignore the naysayers
