    Pros

    Compensation appears to in line with other companies in the energy industry. Location - if you enjoy working downtown.

    Cons

    Hard to get promoted. During my time at the company I have yet to see someone get promoted on my team and more senior positions are almost always filled externally. Although I was hired into the company at a fair compensation level, raises of more than 1 to 2.5% are hard to come by. Since NRG acquired the retail business in early 2009, Reliant has lost many of the perks that once made it a great place to work. Upper management is very out of touch with the rest of the organization and employee morale seems to be at an old time low -- making it a very challenging place to work day in and day out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees and treat them like adults. There are many talented people capable of great work if given the opportunity.
