    I worked at TXU Energy

    Pros

    Able to ramp up quickly and you are able to speak with a variety of individuals in many different business industries.

    Cons

    Not the type of money I was expecting in the long run. Better suited for entry level. If your script worked better they just took it for everyone to use - no creative thought process for anyone else on the team was encouraged. This will burn you out completely as a top producing sales representative especially not giving one the opportunity of increasing their earnings by moving into training, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more realistic with your top producers, pay them better to show you value them on the team.

    I have been working at TXU Energy full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, smart people, collaborative environment and at times the work can be innovative. Is the leader when it comes to product offerings

    Cons

    Takes a long time to learn the business...leadership changes it's mind and strategic direction as easily as the wind blows... political, which makes it stressful to get anything accomplished without having 3 additional meetings to make sure leaders don't get their egos bruised..bankruptcy of parent company is eroding talent making it difficult to get anything done. Knowledge of the business is isolated to core areas of the company. Tries to be transparent but employees always have the sense that something else is happening behind the scenes

    I have been working at TXU Energy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are ok. Very laid back environment

    Cons

    Some departments receive no training and there is limited room for advancement. The company /CEO/ managers will bully people out of the door. In the past year there has been a big initiative to higher more African Americans, but there is still room for improvement. Definitely a Good-OLD-Boy system, recently made the DFW 100 Best Places to Work, but I don't see how.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All people should be treated equally, and stop the bullying.

    I have been working at TXU Energy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people are all very nice and it's pretty low stress. The pay is ok but the bonuses are significant.

    Cons

    It's easy to get stuck doing the same thing for several years. Raises and promotions are few and far between. Zero internal training and only 3k per year for external training which equates to about 3 days of technical training a year.

    stay up with your competition -- in technology, pricing AND employees' compensation or you'll lose customers and valued staff!
