      Pros

      Leaving an old employer to work at NRG was the best decision I could have made. A nice breath of fresh air. Coworkers and management are so respectful, no petty backstabbing for their own benefit to get ahead, always ready to assist and help you grow and do your job efficiently. Everyone in the Company wants to help you succeed, great resources, benefits, PTO and culture within the Company. Very diverse backgrounds and skillsets within the team. Even during my first few weeks on the team, they were always very accepting and encouraging for me to provide feedback and suggest processes/ideas I had to improve day-to-day functions. I've always felt a great sense of appreciation and that I'm a valuable employee since day one. Not to mention great work life balance, upper management is adamant that I prioritize personal time and actually take time off and not work on those days, they reassure me the work will get done when I'm out of office and to not stress while I'm on PTO, which is a nice change as opposed to previous companies I've worked for.

      Cons

      None come to mind, literally!
