    I worked at Ambit Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance, exciting opportunities and new challenges through out my time at Ambit Energy. Learned more in 1 year at Ambit than 4 years at bigger, more established organizations. Leadership is always looking at ways to improve and create a working environment that promotes an entrepreneurial spirit. Be ready! Things are fasts paced but fun!

    Cons

    Downtown location means too much traffic on the commute unless you're taking the DART. Occasionally change in direction can impact velocity, but flexibility is a must.

    Advice to Management

    Growing company means a lot of changes - communicate changes when possible so teams can be ready to adopt. Continue involving the team on driving change and vision for the PM team and IT.

    I worked at Ambit Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Benifits: health insurance, profit sharing, and yearly bonus and raises

    Cons

    Management is horrible the mangers use to be nice, helpful & supportive but the director had turned them into mean, uncaring robots. If you don't party (get drunk and act like idiots) you will not go far. Only people who have been promoted since 2015 on consultant Support are lazy unknowledgeable suckups.

    Advice to Management

    Replace all management. VP is great nice easy to talk to but never there to see what really goes on. Our slogan is never sacrifice integrity for growth, but you can't sacrifice integrity if you never had it.

    You determine your salary with hard work, dedication, it all pays off.

    Training is o.k. You have to learn how to sell and market your business

    Advice to Management

    It has improved, however, the longevity of team members is a problem

    Pros

    The company has some really smart people who are hard workers and they keep all of the lazy people afloat. The pay is really good, but you have to deal with a stupid amount of stress and inflexibility.

    Cons

    I am embarrassed to note how a group of adults cannot work together across different departments to get a project complete. The egos, the gossip, the backstabbing - it's high school all over again. They chase good people away that want to make change because they are so resistant to change.

    Advice to Management

    Please, please get better managers and/or get the current managers trained. They are incapable of relating to their subordinates on a human level and lack the basic experience to be good, engaging mangers.

    Most of people in higher management very good like CEO. CFOs. More politics on senior level management Give chance to people who want to move in different field.
