Good place overall, but make sure to get your raise upfront

Senior Risk Analyst (Current Employee)

I have been working at Direct Energy full-time for more than a year

ProsGood working environment usually. People are easy to work with and respectful of opinions and input, even if you're new. Even the higher ups are very approachable,

ConsRaises are *really* hard to come by once you're already employed, so if you want a good salary make sure you negotiate it up front when you're coming in as a new hire. Once you're employed, 1 to 2% raises are normal and even exceptional work will only get you 4-5% raises.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou should take the time and effort to truly differentiate compensation between exceptional work and normal work. Otherwise, you create a powerful incentive to do just enough work to get by, stagnating improvement of processes and work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
