    Pros

    CenterPoint Energy is a great place to be employed in these tough economic times. We are continueing to grow and prosper when other businesses are folding and closing doors. The working hours are great because you can always know where you will be Monday - Friday, unlike factory or sales work.

    Cons

    I have found that there is still some of the "good ole boy" system still left in the company. Not all employees are treated the same from supervisors.
    When someone contacts HR in response to a problem, fingers get pointed. But very little is done to resolve problem.
    Promotions and pay raises are not distributed fairly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The senior management is doing a very good job. I have seem major improvements since joining the company.

    Pros

    CenterPoint is a well established company, suitable for those professionals who seek a long-term and stable career. The company offers great benefits for employees and supports work-life balance. Since de-regulation, the company has slowly embraced new technology (BPL / Smart Meter technology) and processes to remain competitive and build a strong image/brand in the Texas market.

    Cons

    The company continues to adopt an old school mentality which limits creativity/innovation; the company promotes selectively which hinders growth/learning opportunities. In certain business units of the company, diversity has not been fully embraced and you will still find management at the director level who do not have a college degree, but yet, they have been with the company for 20+ years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote and embrace new ideas from all levels.
