    I have been working at Agera Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company is hands on and always there if you need help. Pay structure is very fair with a base salary plus commission. I have been with Agera for 4 months now and I love my job. I have had several different sales positions and I can't say i've ever been more satisfied with a job. The company gives you all the tools you need to be successful and I highly recommend them.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind for this.

    Advice to Management

    For new hires coming on, maybe a little more time training.

      I have been working at Agera Energy full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      I will preface this review by saying I am a career salesperson and, while this is a review of my time at Agera, it's also a response to some of the below posts at the same time. I have been with Agera for over three years and I can say that what I thought I was getting into is precisely what was delivered. The interview process and Offer package clearly outlines rules, duties and expectations and, unlike other organizations...

      Cons

      I'd like to see more local team building events. Since we are remote, maybe have a set date each quarter where our region gets together for a dinner+training, etc. The weekly phone calls from B****** are great and as others have said are motivational, but I'd like to be face to face with my team more. Also and this may be nitpicky, but as others have said on here, responses from the Commissions Department could be better/more...

      Advice to Management

      More local/regional get together meetings would be great and if we in sales could sponsor events we are close to with some type of budget, it would be great, charity type events. We see Agera do that and SVPs around the country, but for us to get deeper into the community and customers at a local level would be great.

      I have been working at Agera Energy full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I've been with Agera just a few months now and can positively say that the guidance and support from my RD, SVP and EVP has been instrumental in my early success. I've worked with some great leaders and these are among the best. Though this is a remote role, weekly National calls keep everyone on the same page as well as bring a positive team vibe. We share team/individual successes, collaborate on strategy, discuss...

      Cons

      It's a remote role, so communication with the team and leadership is essential. If you’re not great with communication you’ll sink fast. This is one of the most challenging jobs I've had, but to me that's what makes it so rewarding. It's nonstop all day, everyday. I'm always busy (which I love) and the days and weeks fly by, but it’s all about a high level of activity- New outreach, follow ups, networking events...what...

      Pros

      I thrive on the career/family balance this role affords me. I feel like I own my own business and I am compensated according to my efforts.

      Cons

      The only downside is not giving 100%

      I have been working at Agera Energy full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      I have been with Agera for about 3 years. I am 57 years old and have had a lot of experience in business - including running my own company. The support by upper management is probably the best I've seen - from immediate supervision to the top brass, there are no ego's and all are more than eager to offer hands on help, from organizational advice to attending client meetings. The company has grown quickly to a major...

      Cons

      Being part of a remote sales force means that if you are not a self-motivator you will have difficulty in gaining and maintaining business. Agera expects you to treat this as your own business, in a respect. That said, Agera culture is paramount and weekly company wide conference calls help to see what others are doing and how they are selling.

      Advice to Management

      Stay on course - continue what you are doing. This is a great company to work for.

      I have been working at Agera Energy full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Agera offers a BDM opportunity for the entrepreneur that wants to work hard. If you put in the effort you will get the rewards. Great company with a great support structure. Uncapped commissions and great benefits!

      Cons

      BDM role is a remote opportunity and not suited for someone that likes to be told what to do. Must be self motivated.

      Pros

      I've only been working for Agera Energy for less than six months and it's the best decision I have made. They give me the tools I need to be successful and provide me with guidance I need to achieve my goals.

      Cons

      I haven't come across any.

      I have been working at Agera Energy full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Great benefits, good salary, work from home office, great commission potential, with the opportunity for residual income. Being a relatively young company the potential for growth is here.

      Cons

      NO cons with the company as long as you work up to your potential, you can only make the con yourself if you don’t know how to work remotely.

      Advice to Management

      Continue with support of the remote work force. Add some team building.
