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

Pros

My coworkers are great and could not be nicer, most people treat you with respect. The work/life balance is good and the location is great. Some truly knowledgeable people. A great place to get new skills.

Cons

As others have stated diversity does not exist at CenterPoint. It is ruled by WASP and indians. If you are gay, the impression I got is you better keep it to yourself. Meanwhile you will hear all about other people's marriages, kids, home life, etc etc. Domestic partner benefits…forget about it. Not even on the radar. Some departments still have a "good ole boy" mentality, this is due impart to the fact that lots of older employees are in cruise control till retirement rolls around.

Advice to Management

Step into the 21st century and offer domestic partner benefits like most of the other energy companies do. Realize that being inclusive gets you better people, especially when all the old timers retire.
