    Pros

    Be able to make a lot of money. Gives you customer service experience. Be able to meet new people everyday. Opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    There really isn't any bad things about. I mean if you're lazy, this isn't the job for you. You gotta be able to take rejection. The better the salesmanship, the better you're going to be in this business.

    I worked at Reliant Energy full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The employees who work as a team, the profession manner that is expected, the corporate values, the possibility to try new departments in the company. We had a high turn over of supervisor in our department. When a new supervisor came to our group, all people would do their best to bring management up to speed.

    Cons

    Job security: Reliant Energy was on the verge of bankruptsy. NRG bought our company and before the ink was dried on the contracts, Exelon tried to buy out Nrg. NRG recently purchased Green Mountain. Due to the merger with Green Mountain and Reliant, there were many employees laid off. I did not like how the lay off process was handled from human resource Department. A false hood regarding unemployment was given to each person that was laid off, The lack of integrity from NRG, lessened my respect for this company to some extent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The success of a company hinges on the success of the employees. Please lead by example that there has to be highest level of integrity. Employees follow the lead of management. Employees do see a person of integrity as a person to follow and attempt to emulate..
