    I worked at Gexa Energy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was full time, they had plenty company outings

    Cons

    I was there less than a year and went through 3 different training courses (with no choice) without any raises. They do coachings every week just to tell you what you're doing wrong. My supervisor told me I needed to get my sales up at times when there was nothing to offer, which was impossible to do. Also I was giving the late shift which I got off at 8 and it wasn't a big deal since I was told I could submit a request for schedule change, submitted that several times and was told that i couldn't change because its based off company needs, when they study hiring new people on the early shift

    I worked at Gexa Energy part-time

    Pros

    It was great being in the retail electricity business and not having to work Saturday evenings nor Sundays.

    Cons

    The pay starts off at $12.50 or higher now. The bonus range from $500-$2800.

    Advice to Management

    Pay fairly to maintain hard-working and loyal employees.

    Pros

    -Work Life balance is okay
    - Very smart people that are go getters

    Cons

    -Senior Management doesn't have a clue as to what issues their employees encounter internally
    -Compensation is far below competitors in the industry
    -Senior Management are not leaders, they are followers who make knee jerk reactions instead of being progressive
    -No room for professional growth within the company
    -There are very smart people in the company who are being used in the wrong capacity and/or who will never be given the opportunity to lead or be properly utilized even.

    Advice to Management

    A basic course in business management would serve Management well. Your employees are not inferior subordinates. There are many talented people who are educated and experienced within the company, find ways to keep and utilize these people.

    "A job where you show up at 8, leave at 5, and do the same things every day."

    Former Employee - Associate Business Analyst in Houston, TX

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -The hours are pretty good, most people don't stay past 5, regardless of whether they have finished their work or not. The few people who do stay past 5 are trying to finish everyone else's work so that they won't be behind in the future.
    -They try to have fun outings every now and then, in almost half a year of working here, we went laser tagging once, but that's about it.
    - It's not that demanding- you just show up, punch your clock, do your processes, and leave.

    Cons

    - Not much to moving up; you pay your dues, and move up according to how long you've been here.
    -Not much time to try out other departments, so if you get hired in one department, you're stuck there.
    -Very similar work every day;
    - Not much opportunity to grow as a person
    - Not much money allocated for personal development; including extra schooling.

    Advice to Management

    Make working at Gexa fun and exciting. I understand it's about maximizing revenue and minimizing costs, but spend some to make this facility somewhere you wouldn't ever want to leave. There's a reason why people joke about how high the attrition rate is.
