    I worked at IGS Energy as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly environment. The team you work with is very caring and helpful i your own individual work. Gives you insight on the energy industry.

    Cons

    This position is literally a door to door job. Not ideal hours by any means. I would never do it again.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people more money. For the work you do, you don't get paid enough and its pretty ridiculous.

    I worked at IGS Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture has been unmatched
    Very welcoming community
    little to no "red tape" to get things done
    Constant growth overall
    Flexible schedules so long as you get things done.
    Open door with anyone at anytime.

    Cons

    Hidden politics and passive aggressive commentary
    Will tell you they want you to grow but have no room for you to do so.Then hire someone for the role you wanted.
    Constant "He said, She said" across departments.
    Honesty is requested but rarely occurs.

    Advice to Management

    Make everyone feel equal again. I know it gets harder with growth but if people feel like they are getting the short end of the stick. It is only a matter of time before the find the carrot somewhere else.

    Pros

    One of the most mature agile shops in town, learned a lot about the methods and practices on bringing software to market quicker. Lots of good folks to work with

    Cons

    Some immaturity in some of the leadership roles. Lack of advancement opportunities in some cases. Management of technical debt sometimes an issue like in most other agile shops

    Advice to Management

    Trust your technical leads as well as your analyst on charting technical direction. Give them an equal share in shaping the direction of the organization.

    Pros

    Company invests in new technology to equip sales team with. Leadership shows that they actually do care about us

    Cons

    It's door to door, so you have to have tough skin, but it is a great service/product. Base pay is a little low, but commission potential is high. If you work close to corporate office, you sometimes feel a part of there culture; can't speak to other offices.

    Weather comes into play
    Bad reputation of door to door sales

    Advice to Management

    Its hard to keep consistant new sales, I suggest establishing relationships w/ a community. Keeping one or two faces to work larger areas.

    Pros

    They are a green company and believe in capitalism with a cause. Their training of the product is excellent and there are opportunities for everyone that want it. You can make alota money as a Home Energy Consultant. Their commission structure is outstanding and worth pursuing

    Cons

    You are working outside in any and all elements. You are going door to door in nice residential areas providing customer service and selling natural gas and electricity. You must be in good physical shape to do this job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work
