    Pros

    They drive you and you get paid.

    You work in the rain and cold.
    They drop you off by yourself.

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

    Pros

    Will say anything to get employees in the door, dishonest commission structure that constantly changes in order to deceive employees on possible earning potential.

    Cons

    Dishonest recruiting practices, expense reimbursement delays for months at a time, confusing and deceiving commission structure, you will be told your income with double in the first year when in actuality it will not change even if you meet every sales goal they can make up because their goal is to use your book of business and make empty promises until you realize there isn’t anyway to make money working for them and finally leave. The high turnover is because it’s impossible to sustain a living while making well below the basic cost of living income in Houston.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what their owed and stop lying to employees and customers or get out of the retail electricity game because you’ll never be successful with this terrible deceitful strategy.

    I have been working at Entrust Energy full-time

    Pros

    The close knit team in Pittsburgh makes everybody's work feel important to the overall company. Understanding management allows for you to have a healthy work / life balance.

    Cons

    The office in Pittsburgh is only one year old so there is still some searching for most efficient manner of communication and work flow cohesiveness between Houston (HQ) and Pittsburgh.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to continue to define where they see this company going and how they would like to get there to the team. Once those things are defined and expressed, actions need to support those words.

    I have been working at Entrust Energy full-time

    Pros

    Lot's of great, talented people. The work environment is engaging, and offers a lot of opportunities to get involved in new things. It's refreshing to be able to talk to higher level management and have your opinion be heard, and get insight on how decisions are being made. Compared to other places I've worked, Entrust is rewarding, and I feel recognized for my contributions. On top of that, they have a clear vision, and have done a great job at communicating the companies goals and progress.

    Cons

    Being in the Energy industry, certain things become repetitive. But as I mentioned above, there are enough opportunities to try new things, that I can hardly call this a downside.

    Advice to Management

    Being open and maintaining the lines of communication with your employees is something I truly appreciate. It gives me confidence in the company, and our goals. Not only that, it provides a great platform for employees to be engaged in the companies future, and use our expertise to help drive us there.

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial company with offices in Texas and Pennsylvania. Entrust Energy has made the Houston’s Business Journal’s (HBJ) Fast 100 List for the past 3 years as well as Inc Magazine's Fastest Growing Company. Employees are motivated and passionate about their work.

    Still a rather young organization so with that are to be expected growing pains.
