    I have been working at Good Energy full-time

    Pros

    Honest and ethical company in an industry where it may be lacking; strong negotiators, large book of business which provides great leverage with and/or for customers with suppliers. Diverse portfolio of services. Ambitious.

    Cons

    Poor training and communication; lack of follow through on policies; "unusual" personalities leading company; seem to be disconnected from certain departments of company and personnel; pay may be below industry standard.

    I worked at Good Energy full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people are amazing, really committed and hard working. The mission of the organisation is easy to sign up to.

    Cons

    Chaotic working atmosphere, no strategic planning, too many meetings, overbearing micro-management, no trust, rely too much on goodwill expecting staff to take on more than is appropriate, misaligned budgets, contradictory targets, poor customer focus! Ignore signs of stress.

    I worked at Good Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Near to train station Near to town centre

    Cons

    Good Energy is now a shrinking company and has been shedding its workforce rapidly during the course of 2017 or losing staff in their droves on their own accord. The company is managed by incompetent managers unable to actually manage people that have a cultural problem with taking ownership of anything. The company's CEO focuses on the ethical image of the company rather than it's failings which are poor legacy systems back in the dark ages, and lack of training of staff which is the fundamental biggest cause of problems today. Good Energy has made a series of bad decisions over the years which has meant it is failing it's customers by producing error ridden bills and poor customer service. Damage has been done! Avoid this company for employment.

    I worked at Good Energy

    Pros

    The people, on the whole, are the greatest asset Good Energy has. The vast majority want to do a good job but morale is plummeting and you have many good people leaving now.

    Cons

    Look to the very top of the company to see the biggest problem. Lack of decision making, too much power in one person, not focusing on what made Good Energy actually good. The company are not seen in a good light by the rest of the industry. This is leadership who don't actually live the values they say they do.
