I have been working at CenterPoint Energy as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

CenterPoint is a great company. Everyone's been nice and hard working. Great employee benefit. Can get a lot of help from any kinds of people, managers, analysts, directors, engineers, etc.

Cons

The only challenge may be understanding different work processes within this big energy firm. There are lots of things going on at the same time and you need to keep track of them. But as said it would be challenging and you really can get the most out of it.

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

    Pros

    The company will be around for a very long time, very stable. The pay is reasonable and they a have a fairly decent union on the electric side of the company.

    Cons

    They do not promote pass entry level management. Very few people actually get a chance to move up to the corporate level even if they are qualified. The natural gas side of the company has a very weak union and has a strong "Good ole Boy" system in place.

    Advice to Management

    The company really need some diversity at the corporate level. There is a real disconnect between your field employee with college degrees and upper management.
