    Pros

    Be able to make a lot of money. Gives you customer service experience. Be able to meet new people everyday. Opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    There really isn't any bad things about. I mean if you're lazy, this isn't the job for you. You gotta be able to take rejection. The better the salesmanship, the better you're going to be in this business.

    This is one of the best electric utility company to work in USA. They are well organised and work with all forms of business in the energy industry. They have a certain standard and you can notice while working with the company. This is a definite recommendation if you have dreams to move to energy sector.

    There are none so far.
