    I worked at IGS Energy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Weekends off if you hit sales and good to learn sales experience

    Cons

    Huge con is they preach integrity but make customers rates sometimes double. They also adjusted everyones pay reducing pay 30-40% while increasing quotas. They claim to be a good family oriented company and life balance while they actually work you late shifts and additional sales meetings etc....part of your igs Salary. If you devide your salary by your hours, lucky to make 12 an hour. In the beginning they act like...

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Get out of your little office and show some effort to drive your team. Also too many leads. Its kinda weird having so many leads and manager's hounding us. Makes our sales worse

  4. "Greatest company I’ve worked for!"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at IGS Energy

    Pros

    Work, life, balance is great, great coaching, pay is excellent and the company is completely invested in you, from the CEO down. So many opportunities to help the community also!

    Cons

    Being door to door can be a turn off to some, but I don’t mind it.

    Advice to Management

    Though the pay is excellent, a more consistent structure for commission would be great. But really no issues!

    Pros

    You are truly empowered to "do the right thing" for each and every customer. Great culture. Work/Life balance is greatly appreciated. Every team member is valued! There is no "sell at all cost" mentality here!

    Cons

    Would like to see more full time work from home opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Please stay the course you are on. Continue to put employees above profit!

    Pros

    IGS is a great place to work if you live in the Columbus area. Fair pay, good benefits, great management that truly cares for its employees, awesome office with gym and cafeteria that has excellent made to order food at subsidized prices, and the work environment is unlike anything I have experienced.

    Cons

    Not a lot. They don't land on the "top companies to work for in Columbus" list year after year for nothing.

    I worked at IGS Energy full-time

    Pros

    The negatives far out way the very few (if any) positives.

    Cons

    Door to door sales. Income is dependent on many factors beyond one's control. High turnover rate and extremely low length of service among employees demonstrating this is not a job for most. Company recently cut compensation by 20% while raising sales quota by 20% as well. Lot of demands outside of work (e.g. meetings) that add to your work week. Expected to work weekends to help meet your quota if you fall short for...

    Advice to Management

    Increase compensation and structure it as 100% commission. Allow employees to set their own hours and control their time. This job can be done in a few hours a day from 5:00 until 8:00 p.m.

    Pros

    Executive Leadership is top notch

    Cons

    Working in another State , Regional Managers lose everything that is IGS culture. Human Resources are inside and not in touch with the offices outside 6100.

    Advice to Management

    Visit offices outside of Ohio more often!

    We appreciate your kind words about our executive leadership team—we think they’re pretty great too! Given all branches are an extension of our business, we find it important employees feel the same culture in their branches as they do at our corporate office. I appreciate you ...
