    I worked at DC Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are friendly and very smart. I learned a ton. Great perks in the office and at company events. They pay well.

    Cons

    Have to work long hours a few times a month. 11 hour days are typical. Sometimes work nights and weekends to meet deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Make people more comfortable to stay long-term. The churn rate is killing the base of expertise.

    Interview

    Had a quick 20 minute interview. Asked about what I knew about the company and why I wanted to get into energy trading. I was then presented with two cases where I had to describe my thinking process. Overall, it was not that difficult, but it seemed that the person interviewing me was uninterested. When I asked questions, it took him some time to give an answer and his answers were brief.
