    I worked at Gexa Energy as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good location and lenient time management. After working for a company that wanted you to account for every five minutes of your day, this was a welcome change. They also celebrate the holidays like nothing that I've ever seen before by decorating the entire floor and individual cubicles for Christmas.

    Cons

    The company has lots of changes planned for the end of 2015 and 2016 and are still holding on policies and procedures written in 2010 or earlier. Lots of money spent storing paper records and holding on to files created over 5 years ago. They are using contract employees more and more rather than hiring permanent employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to keep excellent employees and contract employees from leaving or being laid off. I was given lots of praise and told that I was doing and excellent job and then "boom", I get laid off via a phone call late on a Friday evening.

    Pros

    very professional and although some companies do not have it, Gexa offers a great work/life balance experience!

    Cons

    Not much negative to say

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge your employees and if an employee files a complaint about management, please look into it. Don't think because you have the complaint that changes the situation. Often times, it just gets worse.
