    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, sharp colleagues, and a corporate commitment to sustainability.

    Your contributions are noted (both positive and negative) and people are expected to consistently perform at their best. A great environment if this type of atmosphere appeals to you- there aren't any slackers here.

    Management is generally open to trying new technologies or work processes provided the business benefits make sense and you are willing to take the initiative/ put in the effort to see it through.

    Cons

    Never know how the market is going to react to various corporate decisions, but things appear to be moving in the right direction after a number of shakeups and acquisitions

    I have been working at NRG Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compensation, dynamic work environment, always complex work to do and work with smart people

    Cons

    Employee morale is low at the moment and most people are not inspired to put in the extra effort to get work done, senior management is not engaged with the employees and does not do a good job communicating with the employees

    Advice to Management

    Take care of employees that are dragging down overall employee morale and be concerned about doing what it takes to ensure employees stay engaged to get the work done rather than worrying about the stock price. Improve communication with employees
