    I worked at Energy Future Holdings as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of really good restaurants around the offices.

    Cons

    There are some really, really bad managers there that were promoted simply because of time with the company but have no actual experience in their management field. If you get unlucky enough to be under one of them, you can expect no training, to have very little work to do and to have blame placed on you all the time. Everything at EFH is an unsurmountable roadblock to the point that you can't do what you were hired to do without someone somewhere with a lot of influence getting angry.

    I have been working at Energy Future Holdings full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Career opportunity, pay, benefits, work-life balance are all good. I enjoy working with the talented people in this organization.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional leadership - political positioning and self-focus is rampant in the senior leader ranks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not all about you. We have a business to run - focus on making the right decision, not the one that will best position you for your next role.

    Pros

    The paychecks cleared...coworkers were good people. The IT crowd worked well together.Clients apreciated our help and where easy to work for/with.

    Cons

    No autonomy, limited growth potential, you were treated like a tool by upper management. I knew one manager that abused some employees and was never called on carpet.
