    Inexperienced leaders. Too focused on operations vs. driving more business

    I worked at Reliant Energy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pays well. Benefits are okay. People are mostly nice.

    Cons

    Leadership is like-minded and has been working together for over 10 years. No upward mobility unless you've been at the company for many years. Can't trust leadership to do what's right. Business is not growing and they will have to be in cost-cutting mode for the foreseeable future. No real strategy for the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look outside of the building and see how other companies compete for business. Bring in outside leaders with experience in marketing and driving subscription type services.

    Bad for long term career growth senior management lacks vision

    Former Employee - Assistant Manager
    Former Employee - Assistant Manager

    I worked at Reliant Energy

    Pros

    Pay is good and feedback on activities is given. Moreover junior cadre gel in well and are friendly. You can sometimes move up fast if you are in the proper lobby. Visibility is often there. Immediate bosses are supportive of their juniors

    Cons

    Management lacks vision and often makes erratic decisions. Factionalism is rife and your advancement depends on your sycophancy and the faction you are in. Juniors are not well treated by the middle management. Company lacks standard operating procedures in work and too much depends on the individual with no fail safe mechanisms in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please avoid the perennial firefighting mode. Take sound decisions at the corporate levels like viability of the projects to be taken up. More often than not management indulges in value destruction. Further please try to control this sycophancy culture and curb factionalism
