    Pros

    Set your own hours, work from home and huge incentives. The best training on-line, by teleconference, and in person that go well beyond building a book of business. A great way to get your feet wet in sales with NO RISK. Socially responsible by actions, they walk the talk. I never met a more honest crew in a leadership capacity. Even the CEO finds time to sit and answer questions with sales staff on the fly. They hold true interest in their reps and it comes from sincerity in the heart!

    Cons

    It is a 3-5 year time frame to replace a full time income, no traditional benefits, straight commission.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing!

    I worked at North American Power full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company was great at establishing a solid work-life balance with a lot of flexability to work from home as needed. There were several employees that worked remotely full-time and several that worked remotely part-time. Overall good solid coworkers.

    Cons

    NAP was always willing to fire or layoff staff as it outgrew their skills or changed directions. Being acquired by Calpine took it to a new level with large layoffs. I also never encountered a Calpine employee or contractor that I would want to work with, just a really terrible experience

    Advice to Management

    Wish you had been able to hold out a year. For the Calpine execs, get your retail energy people to the point where you're good and not just competent enough.

    Pros

    Great group of people, excellent leadership team.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth. This is probably what comes with the territory in the energy market but during my tenure there we experienced a period of great growth in staff followed massive layoffs.
