I have been working at CenterPoint Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

As steady as they come in terms of market sector performance and overall financial health. Good work-life options. Rock solid benefits. Company still has a pension.

Cons

Entrenched staff. Rotation and development opportunities abound, but if you get your heart set on a particular group, it may be some time before that specific opportunity comes your way.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.

    I worked at CenterPoint Energy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were decent.

    Cons

    No positive comments by management. They didn't care about answering the customer's questions correctly in one call. Instead customer's were many times treated rudely and given little information, which led to multiple call backs/call volume.

    Advice to Management

    Promote or hire qualified people to supervise not just those who have put in the time.
