    I have been working at IGS Energy full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great company that takes care of their employees! Great pay, full health care benefits, 401K plan with a company match, and an awesome amount of vacation time. I absolutely love working at IGS Energy and don't plan on leaving anytime soon.

    The company is growing very rapidly and there is tons of long term growth with your career. Everyone's voice is heard and they take advice on how to improve on things on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Overall, there is nothing I would consider a "con."

    Bad reputation of door to door sales

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its hard to keep consistant new sales, I suggest establishing relationships w/ a community. Keeping one or two faces to work larger areas.

    Former Employee - Consultant in Modesto, CA (US)

    I worked at IGS Energy part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Must be self motivated to succeed
    Great for people who want to start over
    Great for people that love talking to people
    And very good for FEARLESS people.
    I'm guessing good pay, considering there are people still working for the company on commission for more than 2 years.
    Green energy and actually wants to save it's customers money unlike a lot of the other gas and electricity suppliers.
    Means well.

    Cons

    Only payed on commission
    Working long hours despite working "part time"
    If you don't get any pick up's, you're screwed.
    The people I worked with in California are...Unprofessional to say the least. They know their things, but the way things were conducted was ridiculous, but one of my biggest gripes with this company was that they would have people working in a dangerous city up until 7 in the afternoon with drug attics out. Even the people that we were trying to get to sign were upset that they'd have us working out there at night, which really made me question if the company,"cares" about their consultants.Even less when I asked one of my co workers why they do that he replied,"Oh that's nothing, they'd have us work until 8 p.m then we started getting complaints so we stopped." It made the impression on me that they only cared about making sales and money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some control over your employee's. Be more of their boss and not their friend, take into consideration the surrounding of where you drop off your consultants. Also if you are going to buy a house and rent the rooms to employee's, set some STANDARDS. The house looks like a frat house, with stains of all kind on the walls to the carpet. Mind you this is (WAS) a nice 2 story house in the rich part of the area. Become more professional and if that means firing certain people and re accessing how to manage again, then do that.
    Another thing is to discuss hours with new employee's or people inquiring about the job. Be truthful to them if they will be working 4 hours (normal) or literally 10 hours out knocking on houses. Also discuss pay, do not say you get payed weekly, that you will be payed every 2 weeks for the work you did prior.

    Pros

    They are a green company and believe in capitalism with a cause. Their training of the product is excellent and there are opportunities for everyone that want it. You can make alota money as a Home Energy Consultant. Their commission structure is outstanding and worth pursuing

    Cons

    You are working outside in any and all elements. You are going door to door in nice residential areas providing customer service and selling natural gas and electricity. You must be in good physical shape to do this job.

    Keep up the great work

    Pros

    Great facility, a lot of great people work there

    Cons

    Company went from a small nice family owned company to a large corporate monster.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward those who actually do hard work. IGS Energy has lost a lot of great employees because of their failure to acknowledge those that do work. They say they want "rock stars", but a rock star by definition is a self absorbed drug addict.

    The environment of a start up.

    I have been working at IGS Energy full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company really puts great emphasis on creating a culture of camaraderie and collaboration. They devote time and energy to holding numerous employee events and activities throughout the year.

    The industry also presents great challenges to overcome and IGS is definitely creating innovative solutions to meet those challenges. You are definitely on the forefront.

    Cons

    With all the benefits that come with a start up, there's also the downside. Things move incredibly quickly and aren't always communicated clearly or change too rapidly and end up wasting some time and effort.

    There are new projects and initiatives that give the potential for advancement within the company, but it's not anytime soon and they don't seem to be thinking of their own employees to move up/into new roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to the staff you have to develop them into your future leaders instead of hiring outside the company. There are a lot of young millenials in the building and if they feel like you're not invested in their future, you're going to lose them.
