    I worked at NRG Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well i was lucky enough to run scotland for the Indirect Operations of NRG, we had a fantastic team who looked after each other, we fed from one and other and most of all we hit our targets and i also had some fantastic dealers in Scotland

    Cons

    the only con would have been lack of tech support in the scottish region and the fact our board in Japan were working from figures and not really getting a foothold on the economic downturn that Britain was heading into at that time!!!

    Pros

    Led a great team and lots of unique and challenging opportunities leading to many learning experiences.

    Cons

    Your thoughts about the performance of your team seems to hold limited merit. No real management power as decisions seem to come from the top only. Pay seems to be low compared to peers in a non management position (senior level).

    Advice to Management

    Allow managers and supervisors flexibility to promote team members while simultaneously working with Senior Management to only approve of the financial metrics of the promotion.

    Pros

    Everyone is very personable. The people are the best part of the company. There were often events being thrown to show how much we were all appreciated. In the warmer weather, there were several days we went outside simply to take a break.

    Cons

    Nothing ever really "worked" like it was supposed to. Every day there seemed to be something new that broke down and a new work around to fix the problem but there never seemed to be any solutions to the actual problem. Customers would often complain and there was no actual resolution.
