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

Pros

The company has great benefits. The pay is competitive, but you have to get paid upfront so negotiate a salary you want so do your research ahead of time. A very diverse work enviornment, every nationality is represented at the company.

Cons

No worklife balance if you want to be successful. Lack of training and training materials. This is not a team environment at all. The true definition of the Rat Race. Most of the company employees do not like working here, but play the corporate game.

Advice to Management

Create a better working environment for the employees.

    I have been working at Direct Energy full-time

    Pros

    pays well for entry level positions. Nice management and friendly employees. Laid back company culture (to a fault actually)

    Cons

    Most positions are glorified data entry and career development is pitiful to non-existent. There is a very stressful work environment fueled by faulty unreliable systems and long term understaffing. Mgmt is clueless and powerless in terms of employee engagement and their efforts often translate into busywork and corny awkward activities

    Advice to Management

    expand employee roles to include decision making and responsibility. Recruit more exclusively, rather than abhorrently unprofessional, unskilled hires. Then invest in them. Most importantly, realize that training, employee development, and fulfilling careers are engaging--not pizza parties.
