    Senior Analyst (Current Employee)

    ConsLong hours and if you work for an average manager it can make your life extremely difficult.

    Don't bother apply if you do not know a manager or are White. Tons of favoritism all about.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI don't know. It is very hard to pinpoint why this place was a waste of time.

    Not enough diversity
    Promotions go to the whitest or friends of managers
    Do not promote from within, prefer to choose from external candidates before experienced people

    Advice to Senior ManagementNothing. You have managed to run your company into bankruptcy! Keep up the good work!

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

    A Horrible Company That's the Old Boys' Club and Discourages Any Creative Thinking

    Analyst (Current Employee)
    Irving, TX

    ProsThe job is stable, there are some catered company lunches, towel service and a dinky exercise room (no weights, just some old machines).

    ConsManagement continuously violates employment laws by calling employees during personal time off and/or making them work. Expect to work long grueling hours, not be paid well and be yelled at every day. The company is full of finger pointing and blaming people for not getting work done, instead of working together and actually doing work. Management professes to develop associates but will deny training to those who aren't in the "in" crowd. The company also heavily pressures you to donate and contribute to the United Way, whose CEOs have been found guilty of embezzling funds. The company also has promoted a few minorities into management positions but, as an African American, I can tell you that there is still open discrimination. Management will also hamper your career opportunities and promote their friends. If they don't like you, regardless of your performance review, they will stop you from getting a job on another team. For non-management, senior level management is off limits and managers openly discourage you from

    Advice to Senior ManagementHold managers accountable. Practice open door policies. You're a Texan company - practice Texan values of courtesy and politeness. Get with the 21st century and fire some of the dinosaurs who've lived in the company since before humanity.

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

    Not Fun

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIts the largest retail energy provider in texas

    ConsBoring environment, employees are not happy and for the most part are rude. There was only 4-5 people I met at the company that were nice to me. The ones with good attitudes seem to move up very quickly though.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the organizational culture

    OK company to work for

    Manager - Marketing (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsGood benefits, good bonus structure, average salary range
