    I worked at Energy Future Holdings

    Pros

    Company has large retail electric utility customer base. TXU Energy business unit is an energetic and creative place to work.

    Cons

    The power generation business unit is struggling in the Texas competitive market and this struggle makes creates instability at the employee level making it not a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Executive leadership needs to be much more transparent in communication with employees regarding the short and long range plan for the company.

    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.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Energy Future Holdings full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    A lot of hard working long term employees that knew the business of utilities

    Cons

    Too many laid off employees to make a successful company. Massive revenue losses due to ignorance!

    Advice to Management

    Before you hire stupid CEOs/CIOs evaluate the corporate situation and where you want to go. Maybe your tenured employees couldn't help you get there!
