    I have been working at CenterPoint Energy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary is excellent, training is second to none, minimum travel, all tools and equipment including safety gear is supplied, opportunity to advance

    Cons

    Middle management borders on incompetent, the union protects lazy employees, Human Resources is a joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out blanket training programs, for instance, I've never fallen off a ladder, sexually harassed anyone, stolen anything, or injured myself slipping on the ground, yet I sit through meetings about these topics annually. Seriously, every year.
