    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!!!

    Great people and engaged managers.

    Cons

    Since David Crane left the organization has been trying to right the ship. A major turn around took place and stock price rose. But then activist investors came in, installed 2 board members and a new transformation is under way. This has resulted in massive layoffs and a few waves have already taken place with more expected.
