    Pros

    a big organization with opportunities to move around the company, to gain exposure in different field while participating in cross-functional projects

    an older firm that changes slowly, sometimes behind the pace of market, business might out-grown the in-house systems from time to time

    Inexperienced leaders. Too focused on operations vs. driving more business

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    I worked at Reliant Energy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pays well. Benefits are okay. People are mostly nice.

    Cons

    Leadership is like-minded and has been working together for over 10 years. No upward mobility unless you've been at the company for many years. Can't trust leadership to do what's right. Business is not growing and they will have to be in cost-cutting mode for the foreseeable future. No real strategy for the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look outside of the building and see how other companies compete for business. Bring in outside leaders with experience in marketing and driving subscription type services.
