    I have been working at NRG Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Led a great team and lots of unique and challenging opportunities leading to many learning experiences.

    Cons

    Your thoughts about the performance of your team seems to hold limited merit. No real management power as decisions seem to come from the top only. Pay seems to be low compared to peers in a non management position (senior level).

    Advice to Management

    Allow managers and supervisors flexibility to promote team members while simultaneously working with Senior Management to only approve of the financial metrics of the promotion.
