I have been working at CenterPoint Energy

Pros

Decent salary, benefits and paid time off considering the demographic area. Relaxed and casual working atmosphere. Definitely a place for longevity.

Cons

In some pockets there is the good ole boy attitude. But 75% of the people I work with are kind and helpful. Unorganized at times.

    I worked at CenterPoint Energy full-time

    Pros

    If you are smart and have zero ambition or drive OR you're not very smart but like to play political games, this is your place.

    Cons

    A group of 50-somethings who have been working together for 25+ years are focused on playing games, not managing the business. Good thing they have limited business skills. Unfriendly to outsiders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold a lottery and send every other person home. Gas system pressure and electric service? The same. Shareholder value? Increased, Ratepayer value? Exponentially increased.
