    I have been working at Just Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've never worked for a company where the leadership is so accessible and involved. They make it a point to visit offices and stay connected in every day activities. Most of our leadership was promoted from within, and remember where they started.

    Cons

    Because our company is growing so rapidly we sometimes experience "growing pains".

    Continue to listen to the feedback of the employees and try to evolve to everyone's needs as best as you can.

    Pros

    I love working here. Great work environment and challenging to not make it boring

    Cons

    Poor compensation, no maternity leave. Below average median salary for my position with my experience.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in current talent, raise compensation for current employees as it's cheaper to keep current talent than seek outside

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

    Pros

    They pay biweekly , offer health benefits, stock plans and 401k match. They are on lines with benefit offers of other companies.

    Cons

    I would not recommend working here to anyone right now. Mismanaged, lower pay than industry for anyone that is not executive and continually hiring unsuitable leaders that destroy the company and treat loyal employees like crap. The CEOs seem to miss this right under their nose, they come in and then continually rip off the company and overspend on things that don't make money and on their "people". The wrong people are noticed while the strong and loyal leave or are unhappy.
    Focus on what you know best. Unravel spending more often to find out the who what and why. Don't hire on promises , Focus on a few ideas to complete and succeed at. No one is successful with ADD ( never completing a task). Look at the last 5 years , the Executive walk of shame and change the cycle.

    Advice to Management

    Look within your four walls for loyal and smart employees that have the company's best interest in mind, raise them up, they won't rob you blind. Don't continually go outside to find the miracle cure, if someone says they can cure cancer in a week with no side effects ,they are most likely lying. The people and solution is probably closer than you think. Stay focused and expand on what you know (retail energy) . Own your space.
