    I worked at Luminant full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    There are a lot of great people still working there.

    Cons

    Management is so set in their ways they are not interested in ideas to make them more profitable. Management thinks every employee is replaceable and treats them accordingly.

    Advice to Management

    You should educate your lower management on what the law says so it doesn’t put your company at risk.
