A new Direction at Direct Energy

Systems Analyst (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsThe company has great benefits. The pay is competitive, but you have to get paid upfront so negotiate a salary you want so do your research ahead of time. A very diverse work enviornment, every nationality is represented at the company.

ConsNo worklife balance if you want to be successful. Lack of training and training materials. This is not a team environment at all. The true definition of the Rat Race. Most of the company employees do not like working here, but play the corporate game.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a better working environment for the employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
