    I worked at NRG Energy full-time for 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!!!
