    First year was good...last few were like a roller coaster!

    Corporate (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsSome great and friendly people work at Key. If you are in good graces with the upper tier management all will be good and smooth sailing

    ConsExtremely cliquish leadership...the only way to grow in this company is to kiss some serious a$$ and step on others on the way up the ladder. It can be the classic management style of "what have you done for me today?" or take credit for what others have done and then when they screw up punish the subservient. People are constantly looking over their shoulders as the powers that be continue to RIF and hire at a crazy pace. It's the ol' jerk the dog on a chain routine, so the "loyalty" is for sure a mirage.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe...just maybe the reason the revenues are like a roller coaster is because it is a direct reflection of the roller coaster you put the employees through? Call me crazy, but if employees are driven because the leadership is clear, honest and loyal the employees will want to produce. If the leadership is dishonest, unclear and disloyal they will not produce. It's pretty simple math really.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Key has done nothing for my career.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCoworkers are nice and friendly. Scheduling is flexible.

    ConsManagement expects the workers to do their jobs for them. There is no regular pay raise schedule. There is no advancement schedule. Additional responsibilities are added without providing training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't treat employees like just another resource. Stop expecting employees to give without giving something back.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Nice environment and great pay.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Key West, FL

    ProsFree schooling- keys energy provides college courses to interested employees if budget allows. Great benefits- retirement paid for after 30 years.
    Good insurance- almost everyone accepts their insurance and the deductibles are pretty reasonable.
    Awesome pay- keys energy pays well beyond the average pay.

    ConsPeople aren't very approachable in other departments. It almost seems like other departments are in a completely different planet. Some employees will actually ignore you even when only saying good morning.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe try to have a friendlier environment.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
