Pros

Scale of the company is large. 4th largest natural gas marketer in the United States. Has the agility of a small company with the balance sheet of a world class utilities provider.

Cons

If you are not interested in a career in trading, the training opportunities in other business fields is limited. Great place if you want to trade commodities though.

    Pros

    The people that work (worked?) there are fun to be around. There are a lot of young people to connect and hang out with.

    Cons

    Management has a poor relationship with HR and, it seemed, with headquarters. There's a very high turnover among the higher levels of the organization. It's a very aggressive, competitive culture.

    Advice to Management

    Get yourselves together. Build a brand in the US as a company that people want to work for, and value your employees.


  2. Disorganized and poor management/HR dynamics

    Pros

    Predominantly young, fun workforce. It's easy to make friends. The office is in a good location not too far from the Memorial area.

    Cons

    The trade floor is a bit of a boys' club; very competitive and aggressive. Managers and HR clash, with no one wanting to take ownership of issues that arise. There's some workplace drama.

    Advice to Management

    Take ownership of problems that come up.
