I have been working at CenterPoint Energy as an intern for less than a year

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.

    I worked at CenterPoint Energy full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good core values concept and benefits. CEO is great! Was there for over 22 years...

    Cons

    Not very open to diversity in workforce. Senior Management very entrenched in covering for managers and unfair promotion / hiring practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better inclusion and get rid if the 'good old boys' and mentality that dominates the company and it's subsidiaries. Need to train leadership to really lead or move them out of company

  2.  

    Great work life balance. Lack in upward movement, raises, compensation, and recognition. Good place to learn.

    Pros

    Work life balance, good place to learn.

    Cons

    No matter how hard you work and surpass others it will not get you promotions or raises (you will have to wait it out). If you are already a professional negotiate your salary well or you will get paid less and have the work piled on and later regret your decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't play favorites or you will loose good workers.
