    I have been working at CenterPoint Energy full-time (more than 8 years)


    Relative lenient work environment. Stable industry. Large company that provides opportunity to move around inter-departmentally and regionally.


    Relocation is an unspoken requirement to advance in the company, often times to make the jump from supervisor to manager. Work can often times be monotonous. Industry environment is highly regulated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to employees' family situations and responsibilities while determining the best candidates for open positions. Relocation should not be looked so highly upon.
