  1. I worked at Glacial Energy

    Pros

    Depending on whom you are working with directly from the company will depend on a good portion of your success as you will find alot of negativsm in the marketplace to switch over

    Cons

    Alot of companies vying for deregulated energy business and a very uneducated marketplace. The government is not controlling this DEREGULATED market so it's like a free for all!

    Pros

    8-5 work day. Nice office space. Fun environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes late hours, but this is not really a complaint. That is what it takes to meet deadlines. Would have a flexible schedule the next day, or a party or event to attend.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it interesting

    Pros

    None that I can think of. Gary Mole was finally forced out, though he still owns Negawatts. But we'll see how long that lasts. The people he owed money to have taken over and we should see some good things coming as far as pricing and management.

    Cons

    Everything...crappy pricing, management with addiction tendencies,. If you're willing to screw your customers and know it, this is the company for you. I personally couldn't stomach it.

    Advice to Management

    Like a phoenix rising from its ashes, the next iteration of Glacial should be a much better company. But, right now, it has to be proven to me and a whole host of others.

    Pros

    The product being sold was electricity. The sales process was easy to implement and customer understanding was also easy to establish.

    Cons

    Most of the prospective customers had to have their hand held and walked thru mostly overly complicated contracts. The legal terminology scared some customers away.

    Advice to Management

    Could have had more hands on teaching.

  11. If only for the government
