    I worked at CenterPoint Energy as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    it is a good place to do an internship and gain experience. People are nice, and will come and talk to you, often a bit too much. Some people are famous for messing with the Engineering Coops, but they mean well. Bring donuts, it will take you far.

    Cons

    sometimes the work is not challenging and you find yourself trying to look busy. As a younger person (still in college) you might feel out of place, since most guys are above 40. I guess that could mean that the company has job security.

    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.
