    Find more people with skills and expertise outside of your comfort zone, then trust them to do good work.

    I worked at Ambit Energy full-time

    Pros

    Benefits , break room, Training class, nice size parking lot, and close proximity to many restaurants.

    Cons

    The management is completely unprofessional all the way from team lead to upper management. Most of the employees have to walk around on egg shells and play the cat and mouse game to stay employed. If you love unprofessional, low morality, and backstabbing management this hostile environment may be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people who are unfir to handle conflict within the organization and require them to partake in leadership courses. Otherwise your company will lose all credibility for hiring the best.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours and management is open-minded and works with you if you have an emergency. Ideal for a college graduate who has no clue of the real corporate world and do not know any better and the company can mold you to its ways.

    Cons

    This company is a true joke. This company believes in making management out of people who are not well equipped nor have the backgrounds or education to fill the role. You may have a degree and other impressive background titles and you may be reporting to a manager who never received a degree, moved its way up from the call center and looks down on you. People will only get raises or promotions if you are willing to do the ridicule tasks given to you to so you can prove your standing with the company and are constantly having to prove to your superiors with written documentation vs. actions, so if you are willing to put up with the undermining subjections to prove your worth then please look somewhere else where your background and experience is well accepted. This company does not like to hire people with amazing backgrounds and credits because that means for change, if you want to come and challenge and make a difference where it's needed, walk away, you will only get in hot water with management and eventually get fired. There is no respect for or within management, its all fake and bad blood all around. There is no culture here, you will be lucky to get a team outing if you beg the management to organize something. There is constant secrecy within management and employees with projects and news that will only be disclosed to certain people and whoever knows walks around like they are the "chosen ones" making the rest of the employees feel less. This place works like a madhouse, no one ever knows what they want, what the goal is. Beware of the other positive reviews, those are usually internal trying to disguise the real truth.

    I have been working at Ambit Energy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pays well if you work it. It's different levels of the income... the goal is to become executive consultant...that's when u make the REAL money.

    Cons

    Don't get paid unless you get consultants and customers. Can be kind of hard to do. Getting people's to submit $100 bucks up front is difficult. Persuading has got to be one of your great traits. Sell sell sell!!!!

    Advice to Management

    I feel it should be some type of compensation/base pay.

    Educate employees as far in advance as possible, not the same day.

    Pros

    None to add to this. Please do not join this company as a consultant. Don't waste your hard earn money and time for people that make money off of you. They will think you are not going anywhere due to the corporate ladder but it's the same exact thing with this company!!! Save your LIFE!

    Cons

    Long hours
    $$$ out of YOUR pocket for meetings, seminars, retreats
    This company goes after struggling families and people to suck the last of your money for this dream.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the bull. You are just a typical pyramid scheme and convince people to join this cult.
