    I worked at ENGIE full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    North American unit is a growing company in the deregulated retail electric power industry as well as wholesale power and gas. Company has newer initiatives in renewables and retail gas. ENGIE North America has matured over the years compared to the initial years, but it is a solid company with many opportunities and loyal employees.

    Cons

    As with many maturing companies, systems age and need upgrading. Human resources is poor. Upper level executives rotate so there have been good and bad years depending on the leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people.

    Pros

    Coming into a junior role I found there to be good growth opportunities. Flexible schedule, pay was average but great bonuses and profit sharing, great benefits

    Cons

    Company was changing drastically and no longer the same place to work. Did not seem to have a clear vision anymore. Huge cost cutting measures and lay offs. Forgot how to treat people at the end.

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

    Pros

    Pay is lower than their peers, but turnover is lower and there's better job security
    You get to work on big projects directly and have a lot of responsibility, but recognition is based on your boss's willingness to communicate it to others

    Cons

    It's very slow about pushing new strategies
    Previous management mostly cared about their bonus structure at the risk of the entire group's performance (unwilling to lower sales price in most exposed markets to put together deals in competitive markets)

    Pros

    Compensation is very good, people are team players. The location is hard to get to due to traffic.

    Cons

    Future looks bleak, we are going into industries that have not been proven to make any return on capital employed

    Pros

    Used to be great, but not anymore

    Cons

    Management cut cost by tripling to soda price that employees pay - doing so without any advanced warning. Management can save much more by eliminating first class overseas trips that are taken by a few many times a year.

    Advice to Management

    Poor leadership

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

    Pros

    Location is near Houston Gallaria.

    Cons

    My experience with the environmental division was not great. The group has reorganized and I am not sure what changes have been made but I was underpaid and unrecognized for my work. My title was an "Analyst" while the other people who were doing the same work as I was doing had a "Manager" or "Advisor" title. We were all doing the same work but because of the title differences our compensation and benefits were not the same. The reasons for this were never clearly stated by management.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent with the treatment of your employees.

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

    Pros

    -There's lots of opportunity to move between divisions, subsidiaries, countries even. depends on department, location, willingness to move and talent.
    -It can be kind of cozy not too difficult depending on the role, division, if you are project based its very busy, then not so busy, cyclical
    -Smart hires, good staff

    Cons

    -Highly procedural and process oriented, often it feels like legal has to approve everything

    Advice to Management

    -You've bought a lot of new companies (ECOVA, Opterra, GCN). Figured out how to integrate them already.
    -Senior management needs a better grasp on the technological wave of change that the Paris mgmt is pushing them towards. There's very little technology/innovation folks at the top.

    I have been working at ENGIE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent coworkers, very friendly space to work in. Have had at least 2 managers whom I consider mentors and can see myself turning back to even after I leave the company. Leadership has been insisting on becoming more nimble and able to adapt faster to customer and industry trends.

    Cons

    Negotiation of pay and other compensation is relatively inflexible, and good talent leaves because of lack of adequate compensation. There can be excessive red tape due to the size of the company, as well as a fear of changing and trying out new things by mid level management.

    Advice to Management

    Keep important talent by offering them competitive pay, and keep trying to make us more innovative. Slowly but surely we can get there!
