Pros

Great place to gain knowlege of the energy industry and then move on. They offer flex time in some departments.

Cons

They very rarely hire contractors. Majority of their employees are contractors. Turn over is high. Your training is OTJ nothing is standarized nor documented, yet you are held accountable. Permanent employees are very young and eager to crawl the corporate letter and willing to do everything and anything to get to the top. Local human resources is very weak and unfamiliar on handle employee situations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to be more personal and on the floor. They need to back their word and show that their are career paths.

    I worked at Gexa Energy

    Pros

    Great wok environment with laid back employees. The pay is very fair and the supervisors are very understanding when it comes to time off.

    Cons

    Horrible communication between departments, the workload is way too excessive because the corporate office would not allow us to hire to cut costs. Absolutist no trai ing structure all trial by fire or learn from asking co workers. It seemed like the supervisors and bosses never knew what was been done or the type of work you were doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more with your employees. Start or atleast pretend that you care about your employees and their overall well being. Be more involved with everything it would make everyone life easier.

    Pros

    -Work Life balance is okay
    - Very smart people that are go getters

    Cons

    -Senior Management doesn't have a clue as to what issues their employees encounter internally
    -Compensation is far below competitors in the industry
    -Senior Management are not leaders, they are followers who make knee jerk reactions instead of being progressive
    -No room for professional growth within the company
    -There are very smart people in the company who are being used in the wrong capacity and/or who will never be given the opportunity to lead or be properly utilized even.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A basic course in business management would serve Management well. Your employees are not inferior subordinates. There are many talented people who are educated and experienced within the company, find ways to keep and utilize these people.
