I have been working at Commercial Energy of Montana full-timePros
I have worked at Commercial Energy for almost 5 years now and if there is one thing to take away from my review it is this: if you are smart, determined, hard-working and have an outgoing, positive attitude you will do very well at this company. I am compensated very well for my position and I have achieved numerous promotions (and more importantly to me -significant pay increases) during my time at Commercial Energy. Like with any job there are Pros & Cons to working here, but in my experience the Pros have greatly outweighed any perceived Cons.
Pros: very well compensated, great benefits, President's Club is fun, large and interesting client base, NOT boring!, working with incredibly intelligent people, small company so you get to learn about many facets of the business, the CEO has incredible business acumen so being around him everyday is like getting a free MBA, excellent training (onboarding) they definitely put you in a position to succeed, great coworkers, weekly happy hours/team outingsCons
Not everyone will be a fit for this company. If you are shy, timid you most likely will not enjoy working here. It is incredibly fast-paced with very high standards and lots of accountability. If you prefer to sit at your desk without supervision or senior mgmt interaction you will not do well here. I have had my challenges with senior mgmt like many people have mentioned but if you speak to them candidly and directly about your issues they have been very open to resolving any issues and developing solutions to resolve them. They expect high levels of performance on a consistent basis so it can be stressful at times to keep up to expectations.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Like Richard Branson once said, "Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they stay."
Undoubtedly, you provide excellent training and make sure everyone becomes an expert in their field. I have grown so much in my career from the tools and experience I have received at Commercial Energy. Continue to consistently evaluate employee happiness/satisfaction to make sure your top-performing employees are staying motivated and challenged.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
