    Pros

    Career development is a big positive here. You will get promotions easily if you perform well. There are no internal politics. System is very transparent.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Not much work from home opportunity. Just 10 days of leaves, which is very bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that employees have work life balance and give them work from home opportunity if necessary

    Pros

    It has a Multicultural Environment. I had immense Learning opportunity on the energy industry. It has a fairly decent pay for Norman.

    Cons

    There not much as a con because I worked only for two months as an intern. But for a full time, I guess you need to understand energy industry really well to survive.

    I worked at Power Costs full-time

    Pros

    For the self starter individual with a decent amount of technology skills, Power Costs is a great place to work. Management is supportive while staying out of your way, and the coworkers are a very helpful bunch. If you join with a skill bank, they'll figure out where you can contribute and put you right to work with a laptop. If you're new, you'll probably shadow someone else for a while.

    Politics and departmentalism are very low. The company is relatively flat and is still small in size, so you'll have days where you bump elbows with the president while standing next to an intern.

    The overall environment is very hassle-free compared to large companies. If you possess the means to get something accomplished on your own, you can most likely do it yourself and you won't have to jump through hoops.

    On the job knowledge is extremely deep. The product offered is constantly evolving and you'll have plenty to dig into if you aren't afraid. There's also the industry side of things which keeps you just as busy.

    If you are able to travel, you'll quickly gain recognition and rise through the ranks. All employees book their own travel, so you get to keep the points and miles from spending hours in airports and sleeping in hotels.

    Cons

    Management needs to step back and take a breath occasionally. It often seems like the norm is to constantly be putting out fires instead of taking a proactive approach to issues.

    The client-facing side of the company needs more CRM skills. It can be relatively cheap to build great professional relationships, but extremely expensive to mend broken ones.

    The work-life-balance concept doesn't seem to exist. Understandably, management wants to get the most return out of its employees, but there needs to be a human aspect in place that says it probably isn't a good idea to have people working 60 hour weeks back to back. I recall only one occasion where a manager mentioned that I was nearing burnout and that I needed a break and a change of scenery.

    The benefits package is not bad...if you are a young single male. If you need to insure your spouse or children, it can become prohibitively expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what the employees have to say!
