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

    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.

    I worked at IGS Energy full-time

    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.

    Pros

    Work and Family equals out. Corporate culture is great. The corporate office treats its employees well and make you feel welcome.

    Cons

    The company not being competitive with other energy suppliers. And the buddy system here is ridiculous. Also every week our branch is threatened and punished for petty stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Start talking to your HEC and Territory Managers about unfair treatment at their branches.

    I worked at IGS Energy full-time

    Pros

    Great benefit and base pay. Also, some pretty good people on the team.

    Cons

    What I didn't know until I started was that this was a door to door sales job. I was mislead when I was hired and it wasn't until I was in training that this was brought up. It is basically knocking on someone's door and trying to persuade them to pay more because we offer green energy Ice cold leads. . Usually the competitors rates are much better than IGS's and so are the utility companies a lot of the time. They also say that you manage accounts of people so that they don't go into a variable rate.....that rarely happens because once you sign them up you get a sale. You are based on how many sales you get per week so you tend to spend more time focusing on new sales rather than help the people up for renewals and new sales are the bread and butter. You are almost told to be dishonest to people. The hours are crappy (11-8) especially when you want to enjoy the summer or even go to the Dr. Your territory may be far away so your commute to and from adds time on your day. Only decent part is that your miles are reimbursed. Gladly they are offering the Nest now which helps some of the sales. I don't think that certain branches carry out the founders cultures and beliefs because they are so all about new sales.
