I have been working at IGS Energy full-time
Pros – I like jobs that make me feel like I am making an impact on society. Bottom line- This Country was built on the beliefs of having choice and the capitalistic business model. IGS is a company that believes in serving its customers in the best way possible. Deregulated energy is one of the newbies in the American marketplace and is a very tough sale (not to mention what happened when the telecom industry was deregulated). No need to digress here. IGS promotes good energy... green energy and being responsible users of energy. Who could not like the great slogan of "an energy independent US!" I do wish we all had the means to build better solar panels, wind turbines, and heat producing worm farms (at least until liquid thorium flouride or MIT's new electric generation wonder comes on line). For now we must be ever conscious of the lowest rates from the least corrupt type of supply- right! or figure a way to use less of what's being produced into the GRID". What happens to the energy that's left in the grid? Will we have more energy reserves? An intagible product like energy/even natural gas IS somewhat a hard sell because of the govt regulations and possession of how it "flows". Now that Einstein's theory of relativity is not so much of a theory and "unification" seems to be on the horizon... a new era of "the power of tomorrow" may become reality?
Cons – Brainiacs and forcasters in Dublin need to do a better job of offering rates where utility users really can see a savings on their 1st bill after the sign up. Systems- Mac is a great company, but the use of the ipad air needs much more work. Telling HEC's that customer service is important but not having any type of CRM is "hogwash". If more money is coming from FERC or PUCO (Feds) it should be distributed fairly to the real workers- not the seedy sales smooth talkers *be aware!
Advice to Senior Management – Watch out for the sale gurus" that sweet talk you into hiring them. They are artist at making things sound better than they really are. Semantics, or should I say better semantics, are not going to be the answer to pitching the products on American consumers (yes, peeps in West VA, Ohio/Pennsylvania/Maryland, etc. are Americans). It is what it is, A BILL (not one of those on Capital Hill) and folk's hate seeing them in the P.O.? Mail Boxes.
Fuel Rewards is a great idea- keep it going! If we can't save people money... let's come up with a good reason to choose IGS Energy. Something better than just "price protection"?
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at IGS Energy
Pros – + Relaxed environment
+ Competitive pay
+ Flexible hours in some departments
+ Great Lower Management
+ Brilliant CEO & VP
+ Most management respect self-managing employees
+ Do not have to work most weekends
+ Great revenue
Cons – - Lousy Medical Benefit Provider
- Limited or no professional growth
- How HR deals with employee dissatisfaction
- A few micro-managers
- Customer Service Manager will drive good customer service representatives and good customer service will go with them
- No longer promote from within
Advice to Senior Management – There are a few micro-managers that need to back off and trust their people are doing their best. There is one micro-manager in particular that needs to foster communcation between groups and not dramatize issues between departments that causes future communication problems. Kudos to Scott and Doug on running this company as well has they have. This company has its flaws but there are far worse flaws to have.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
