          Negative Outlook
          Disapproves of CEO

          I worked at Energy Future Holdings full-time for more than 3 years

          Pros

          They'll pay you for your work weeks.

          Cons

          They'll lie about when and how they're going to lay you off then do a walk in surprise lay off with promises they can't keep.

          Advice to Management

          Shut the company down and start it over with a whole new slice of life. Just changjng the name to Vistra didn't fix your woes. Non stop sexual harassment that directors thought was funny and verbally abusive managers made coming to work a living hell.
