It is a great company to excel. If you want to move into a career, they offer many opportunites for you to do so.

Credit Analyst (Former Employee)

I worked at Gexa Energy full-time for more than 5 years

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

ConsNot much negative to say

Advice to Senior ManagementAcknowledge 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Respect for others / Commitment to Excellence / Do the right thing

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Gexa Energy

ProsAlways trying to do the right thing. Salaries are competative with the marketplace. Pay is based on performance. Small group of employees who have a loud voice try to bring the company down but for the most part employees like working there.

ConsThose that complain about the company never bring a solution. There are some employees who have flown under the radar and have extended their stay too long.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake action on employees who bring the company down.

Great company ruined by lousy senior management

Senior Financial Leader (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Gexa Energy full-time for more than a year

ProsGexa is a good company in and of itself. They are a stable REP as they are wholly owned by Nextera Energy out of Florida

ConsDifficult to find skillsets that will stay in retail power. Brutal environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your people. They are your greatest asset.

A job where you show up at 8, leave at 5, and do the same things every day.

Associate Business Analyst (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Gexa Energy

Pros-The hours are pretty good, most people don't stay past 5, regardless of whether they have finished their work or not. The few people who do stay past 5 are trying to finish everyone else's work so that they won't be behind in the future.
-They try to have fun outings every now and then, in almost half a year of working here, we went laser tagging once, but that's about it.
- It's not that demanding- you just show up, punch your clock, do your processes, and leave.

Cons- Not much to moving up; you pay your dues, and move up according to how long you've been here.
-Not much time to try out other departments, so if you get hired in one department, you're stuck there.
-Very similar work every day;
- Not much opportunity to grow as a person
- Not much money allocated for personal development; including extra schooling.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake working at Gexa fun and exciting. I understand it's about maximizing revenue and minimizing costs, but spend some to make this facility somewhere you wouldn't ever want to leave. There's a reason why people joke about how high the attrition rate is.
