Respect for others / Commitment to Excellence / Do the right thing

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Gexa Energy

ProsAlways trying to do the right thing. Salaries are competative with the marketplace. Pay is based on performance. Small group of employees who have a loud voice try to bring the company down but for the most part employees like working there.

ConsThose that complain about the company never bring a solution. There are some employees who have flown under the radar and have extended their stay too long.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake action on employees who bring the company down.

Employees are not essential to success

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Gexa Energy

Pros-Work Life balance is okay
- Very smart people that are go getters

Cons-Senior Management doesn't have a clue as to what issues their employees encounter internally
-Compensation is far below competitors in the industry
-Senior Management are not leaders, they are followers who make knee jerk reactions instead of being progressive
-No room for professional growth within the company
-There are very smart people in the company who are being used in the wrong capacity and/or who will never be given the opportunity to lead or be properly utilized even.

Advice to Senior ManagementA basic course in business management would serve Management well. Your employees are not inferior subordinates. There are many talented people who are educated and experienced within the company, find ways to keep and utilize these people.

Intresting

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Gexa Energy

ProsGreat place to gain knowlege of the energy industry and then move on. They offer flex time in some departments.

ConsThey very rarely hire contractors. Majority of their employees are contractors. Turn over is high. Your training is OTJ nothing is standarized nor documented, yet you are held accountable. Permanent employees are very young and eager to crawl the corporate letter and willing to do everything and anything to get to the top. Local human resources is very weak and unfamiliar on handle employee situations.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to be more personal and on the floor. They need to back their word and show that their are career paths.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
