    I worked at Just Energy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Birthday cakes every month, 2 annual BBQs, Christmas party, yearly team building events, and Halloween customs competitions

    Cons

    Company lacks structure and is very disorganized, pays the lowest salaries in the GTA. I am surprised this website states Business Analysts make 60k +. People come and as soon as they realized this company is cheap all people end up leaving. This company is currently undergoing downsizing since OEB has prohibited door to door sales. If you want to be laid off in the next months, then apply, otherwise try your luck somewhere else. Please note the majority of energy retailers are currently struggling, therefore find a job in a different market.

    Advice to Management

    You will notice that the oldest people have not been promoted in this company. There are people with 10 years and never became managers...why? because most of the top management are the same from 20 years ago....and since this company is shrinking there is no place for you to move up at least to a senior position. All people are currently leaving this company and hoping top find a job. This company is currently outsourcing Operations and Business Analysts in India. The people who stay behind end up getting the task from the people who have left and end up with triple the amount of work. This company is a nightmare!
