    I have been working at Gexa Energy (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with day to day, employee benefits and overall company perks. Company culture varies from group to group and office location.

    Cons

    Departments are very siloed. Not always family friendly. Internal shifts in communication and department oversight.

    I have been working at Gexa Energy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There has been a lot of financial success here in recent years. The company was acquired by a very large, well-resourced organization. Pay is good. Bonuses are going around. Projects are being funded.

    Cons

    There is a culture of arrogance advancing downward from leadership that is chilling operational agility. The result is that, increasingly, we are hiring and retaining highly paid, experienced professionals to turn the screws (to serve entry-level functions) and leaders to guide every turn (to be micromanagers). As so many companies do, Gexa has become fat and satisfied with itself.

    Advice to Management

    Business success is bad for business. Like a diet, if you intend to remain successful, you can never quit. Every influx of talent, every new generation of novices and leaders are the people who will make ot break it. Stay focused.

    I have been working at Gexa Energy full-time

    Pros

    Family oriented and everyone is easily approachable. Even contractors are treated as regular employees and are encouraged to participate in company functions.

    Cons

    The pay is conservative in my opinion. However, it does pay the bills.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
