    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.

    I have been working at IGS Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people at IGS make it special. The people I work with are friends and I'm excited to come to work even after 5 years. People genuinely want to help with your growth, projects, and challenges.
    The company is continually assessing new ideas for improvement and growth opportunities. During my tenure, we have entered several new markets, lines of business, and acquisitions. Not all have been successful, but the company believes that "Failure is an opportunity to learn, to succeed you must willing to fail." This is literally written outside the boardroom and results in strong team support and prevents people blaming each other when mistakes happen.
    Lastly the company is very philanthropic and encourages employees to find ways to help the community. Each year IGS takes a full day and closes the office to allow each employee to participate in a community care day (IGS Impact) with multiple charities.

    Cons

    Change happens fast. While I prefer moving quickly, I have seen some people struggle with the quick pace, especially if they came from an industry or company that was very risk adverse and moved very slowly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye towards balancing company growth while nourishing the culture. You've done a great job so far, but don't lose sight of how easy it is to follow linear patterns by introducing large hierarchies and heavy bureaucracy.

    Pros

    A family-owned, grassroots, purpose over profits culture. We place a high value on our customers, our community, integrity, continuous improvement, entrepreneurship camaraderie, and innovation. With great business experience, collaborative opportunities, and autonomy; every day at IGS is an opportunity to learn, and to contribute to something meaningful. Everyone here walks-the-walk.

    Cons

    Growing pains; a fast-paced culture and highly competitive market creates pain-points, but each is an opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to patiently craft and execute on long-term strategy and vision.

    Pros

    You get paid hourly plus comissions. Manager are easygoing and your goal is very clear.

    Cons

    Lots of negative feedback from prospective customers on a daily basis. As any sales position, negative responses are the most commons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good work and focus on those employees who are struggling at the beginning of their sales career.
