    Pros

    My peers are supportive and friendly. We all work very well together. The company as a whole has great vision and is consistently making improvements.

    I don't really have any challenges. overall I am very happy with this company. As a working adult with a family I find it a great place to work as it provides the flexibility I need.

    I worked at World Energy full-time

    Pros

    casual work wear daily, stocked kitchen, nice offices.

    Cons

    Horrible management, from mid to upper. They do not know how to manage people or their resources. Some in management are not qualified and drive employees away. No growth opportunity, no cross training, upper management making large salaries need to be shed. Hypocritical in their management style. Mission statement is shaky at best. They don't value employees, high turnover. Had a great core business and then they went off track purchasing companies that contradict the main core business model. A large majority of everyone's job there is working through the jungle of systems that do not interact and are extremely cumbersome and is a labyrinth of bandaid fixes upon bandaid fix. The separate offices are not united and each run things differently. A very messy disorganized place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are insurmountable problems that need addressed. Outsource help and stop taking resources from other areas to cover this, as then a whole new set of problems develop. Make the tough decisions and get rid of ineffective management that are only there because they came with a purchase. People see through the meetings that are always pep rallies without addressing real problems. And employees are tired of seeing athletic accomplishments from 30 years ago as part of a corporate meeting. It's irrelevant, redundant and serves only the ego.

    I worked at World Energy full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits - Extensive supplier network

    Cons

    Expected to work excessive hours to meet monthly/quarterly deadlines. No regard for work/family balance and limited opportunity for growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interview employees doing the day to day operations to get a better of understanding of the excessive work load and reward employees with more than ACE nominations (internal company recognition)

    I worked at World Energy

    Pros

    The company is well position to succeed with its core business of retail sales, and if you stick around long enough some of the higher ups are well compensated.

    Cons

    The decision to go public was terrible. Whereas before the company could have focused on gaining new business and improving margins in its retail sales division, it now has to focus on other initiatives to gain the attention of investors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Buy back the stock, eliminate the superfluous business lines, and focus on what you do best.
