    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

    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.
