    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen 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.

    Former Employee - Associate Business Analyst in 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 ManagementAdvice

    Make 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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    There are none. There is absolutely NOTHING good about this company.

    Cons

    everything, the people, the leadership, the work ethic (or lack there of). Managers are only looking out for themselves, none of the managers are capable of cultivating their employees nor are they interested in any such assistance. The company has unreasonable expectations and doesn't give the employees the tools and systems needed to meet those goals. Horrible, high stress and low moral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They all need to be fired. It's just a bad environment in general. My advice to management would be to kill themselves.
