    I have been working at Just Energy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Friendly fellow employees. Would've given zero if not because of them.

    Cons

    Discrimination against introvert, quiet employees. No matter how hard they work and how intelligent and creative they are at work, there's no opportunity and recognition for them. They can also be treated extremely unfairly in terms of salary, bonus and other benefits. Poor management, Many directors / managers are not qualified but making big money. The director in my department is a joke. Top management doesn't... have a vision. There's no direction for the company. The company is losing customer and is not profitable.

    I worked at Just Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn. My Bosses can be very good.

    Cons

    HR policies are very old fashion. In order for you to get a raise less than 5k your salary has to be approved by 3 higher ups Up to the CEO in another country. However, other executives will spends that money in few flights. The company really don’t appreciate their employees and their call centres are very depressing. The Founder of the company Rebecca Mcdonals is a negative person and doesn’t provide a... positive encouragement. If you are young please don’t choose this company. I wish I can provide a positive feed back but my experience was very bad.
