Pros

As a utility, CenterPoint offers job security like no other company can. CenterPoint cares about its employees and the excellent benefits are proof of that commitment.

Cons

As a regulated utility, salaries are not as high as other companies. CenterPoint must explain its expenses to the state.

    Pros

    secure job, once hired as full time it is very difficult to get fired; takes an illegal act - not the whim of a manager.

    Cons

    too much micro-management, very stressful - expectations are that you are available by email 24x7 - including all weekends & holidays.

    very antiquatated, regressive culture. Most staff have 25 to 35 years of seniority and they weild that over you. The mindset is very much "union" at all levels and they will not waver or vary from "treating everyone the same" - yet FAVORITISM IS RAMPANT!

    Advice to Management

    takes years and like all other companies, you must be favored or have a "guardian angel" helping you
