I have been working at NRG Energy full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good benefits and good pay in return for quite a few cons.

Cons

HR service is terrible. Open workspace with tradefloor type setting. No personal space. Limited emphasis on employee satisfaction and retention. Micromanaging middle management. Middle management also needs training on people skills. Senior management preference to go "cheap" on practically everything. Office facilities are not the greatest.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want your employees to be happy and stay, you might want to think about focusing on and perhaps also investing on the things or initiatives that improve employee satisfaction.

    Pros

    Excellent pay. Immediate supervisor very flexible.

    Cons

    Regional Mgmt lacks ethics! Hiring and progress reviews extremely questionable at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top management really needs to pay attention to mid-management practices. New England NRG cannot prosper under current Mgmt.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits with job securely for those who don't rock the boat.

    Cons

    Lacks diversity of any kind. Small chance for advancement unless you fit very narrow demographic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the 21st Century in terms of employee work-life balance and really implement diversity in hiring.
