    I worked at GenOn Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    RRI is a large company with many departments so career movement is very possible. The pay scale seems to be on the higher end of comparable positions in other energy companies.

    Cons

    Lack of senior management skills in fixing problems seems to be a persistent issue. The economic environment of the company is challenging which doesn't create a strong comfort level, and gives the feel that major overhauls of operations could come at any time.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with employees is required to build trust, loyalty, and pride with your rank in file employees.
