    I have been working at IGS Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Executive leadership team is bar none. Truly lives the values on the wall, believing in doing the right thing above all else. Company invests in employees and community.

    Cons

    Fast paced and quickly changing culture makes it easy to be over-connected and difficult to unplug. Middle level leaders don't have the same degree of buy-in for the vision and slow down front-line leaders/individual contributors. Opportunities for women to advance into upper leadership are minimal or, at best, much slower than it is for men.

    Advice to Management

    Be better at leveraging the fantastic employee base. Take a critical look at gender equality.

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

    Pros

    You can get base pay & other benefits.
    Some lunch from them.
    Fuel reimbursement
    401 k
    Health insurance after 60 days

    Cons

    Very hard to earn commissions. Totally you have to depend on base and that's very low. Manager will monitor you all the time. They only look for the numbers, employee resign rate is very high.
    Management is very poor, they don't even know how to deal with subordinates.
    Took bunch of lay offs from other companies as their management.
    If you have nothing to earn in life, go with them.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure, to take some good guys as your Market & Branch Manager.

    Pros

    IGS is a super connected company in the Columbus area. It's well-respected and a great place to launch a career AND a community in Columbus. The company offers a lot of room to grow and cross-train. It's the type of place where every day brings a new opportunity, but it's up to you to take advantage of it.

    Cons

    If you're uncomfortable with change - this company isn't for you. It's a fast moving organization which can be both exciting and scary. You better be ready for a ride.

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

    Pros

    I can't say enough good things about working here. At first I was hesitant because you're selling door to door but from the phone screen to my 2nd interview I was almost begging them to hire me. The training is phenomenal and they go at your pace. You're joining a team who makes you feel like family the moment you meet them. Everyone is so empowering, loving and genuine. The pay is great, with a base pay plus commission. With a promotion you can also earn residual income. I have a fantastic work life balance, we're involved in the community and I love that I am benefiting my customers.

    Cons

    Downside is that it's door to door sales but to be honest it's not bad. We sell with integrity and I feel no pressure to make a sale. You make your customers aware that they have a choice in what they pay and if you can provide them with more value, they will sign up. If they are already in a good situation, I let them know they should stay put for now and I'll check on them when their contract ends.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for your patience, your understanding, your words of encouragement and support.

    The leadership is exceptional both in my department and overall in the company. The company strides itself on offering peace of mind and great value to customers, and lives by the motto of offering exceptional customer experiences every day. The cultures is amazing and the benefits are great. No wonder IGS has been listed as a Best Place to Work and a Top Workplace for so many years in a row!!!

    Cons

    It's a fast-paced environment, which I love, but unfortunately, it is not for everyone.
