    I worked at CenterPoint Energy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The salary and benefit package is very good and for those interested in learning new skills and/or advancement, there are many opportunities available. I felt that the expectations of management was fair. If you come to work each day on time and put in a solid days work, you have nothing to worry about!

    Cons

    There were times when new processes were introduced that the explanation and/or training was lacking. This creates confusion for the work force and lost productivity.

    Advice to Management

    There are some managers, especially those who have been around for a long time, that simply are not open to new ideas. It is almost impossible to get them to even listen to why the existing method is creating a problem or why it is costing the company money. Fortunately, not all managers are that way. If you happen to work for one that is closed minded, it really is discouraging.
