    I worked at Just Energy

    Pros

    The people in my department are truly wonderful and awesome at what they do.

    Cons

    The executive team does not care about morale. Their focus is on obtaining new customers but fail to provide the tools and headcount necessary to maintain current customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on employee morale and learn to be proactive instead of reactive.
