Graphic Designer (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 16, 2018
VERY clique-ish. If you don't get along with people on your team, it can be hard to fit in with the employee culture here. Outside of your team, people are not very friendly. That said, pretty chill place to work. If you are focused on your career and have goals, this may not be a deal-breaker for you. This goes for the Philly office only. Princeton may be different. The culture in the Philly office stems from the start-up mentality (EnergyPlus days). Princeton definitely is a bit more professional and corporate with more polish.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 16, 2018
A day in the life of an NRG sales associate consisted of getting to work at 2 pm, minimum one meeting with the team leader and then breaking huddle to go out and go door to door. The environment was very nice and welcoming.
Manager (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – May 14, 2018
You will be expected to do the jobs of many until you take a stand. Then you may risk getting replaced for the next person to be exploited. The current morale situation at the worker level is toxic at best. Just waiitng for your turn to be cut essentially....
Plant Infrastructure Support II (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – April 16, 2018
Once you understood what was going on and who to talk to to get your issues resolved, the job was really pretty easy. Down side was the company is very siloed. Little opportunity for development even though they tried to pretend and say there were.
Business Development Director (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – April 13, 2018
due to poor past decisions and failed initiatives, NRG is leaning on a successful retail business to reduce costs which has created an overworked environment. Great people there, just too much work for those who remain.
Regional Training Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – April 12, 2018
NRG purchased the gulf coast assets about 12 years ago and they have been a great company to work for. Unfortunately there was a reduction in staffing and I was given a severance package that was very generous.

IT Specialist (Former Employee) – United States – April 1, 2018
NRG in 2014 was really behind the times in IT trends. I believe they have turned it around quite quickly in 2015 when the companies they acquired were running fine @70-99% virtualized servers while they were still building out datacenters due to capacity issues. Seems like a moot point now but just a few years ago they were on the wrong path.
Great 401k match
They are in financial difficulty due to previous CEO strategy
