      I worked at Energy Future Holdings full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Consulting like pace. Pay is at par. 20% bonus is great too,

      Cons

      Company has an overall plant worker /craft mentality. i.e. to treat everyone as a commodity and not to mention trusting in their outsourced vendors more than internal employees. It is truly an awful place to work in my books. as of 2016, all projects have been shut down. its going to be a while any investments are made until mr.Ceo sells off the company in 5 years from now.

      Advice to Management

      You have extremely smart employees. Give them delivery responsibilities and grow them as future leaders.

          I have been working at Energy Future Holdings full-time for more than 6 years

          Pros

          Career Growth was great! Promoted twice within 5 yrs. a lot of seasoned employees with long tenures so unless someone leaves movement is slow.

          Cons

          Very Corporate environment. Needed more employee collaboration. The only thing we did fun together were the annual United Way Fundraising activities.

          Advice to Management

          Take a lesson from your affiliate TXU Energy. You work there and you never want to leave....very energetic and fun working environment.
