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

    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.

    Pros

    Always 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.

    Cons

    Those 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 ManagementAdvice

    Take action on employees who bring the company down.

    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

    Great place to gain knowlege of the energy industry and then move on. They offer flex time in some departments.

    Cons

    They very rarely hire contractors. Majority of their employees are contractors. Turn over is high. Your training is OTJ nothing is standarized nor documented, yet you are held accountable. Permanent employees are very young and eager to crawl the corporate letter and willing to do everything and anything to get to the top. Local human resources is very weak and unfamiliar on handle employee situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more personal and on the floor. They need to back their word and show that their are career paths.

    It started of fantastic but due to a lack of knowledge from the HR department it ended unpredictably early.

    Pros

    Great wok environment with laid back employees. The pay is very fair and the supervisors are very understanding when it comes to time off.

    Cons

    Horrible communication between departments, the workload is way too excessive because the corporate office would not allow us to hire to cut costs. Absolutist no trai ing structure all trial by fire or learn from asking co workers. It seemed like the supervisors and bosses never knew what was been done or the type of work you were doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more with your employees. Start or atleast pretend that you care about your employees and their overall well being. Be more involved with everything it would make everyone life easier.
