    I worked at Planet Energy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great environment to work in. Director of Sales is THE best. Will make life pleasant and satisfying at work. Colleagues are genuinely fantastic people to work with. Absolutely a good place to be when you want to work hard and feel appreciated, right out of the gate.

    Cons

    Structure can change based on the industry demands, but honestly that can just keep things interesting. Office can get a bit hot, that's quite literally it.

    I have been working at Planet Energy

    Pros

    Most of the higher management is very friendly and focused on helping you develop more skills and progress within the company. They look for talent within all employees and try to place them accordingly. People really do come first.

    Cons

    Not all departments have the same values. The location is fairly new so they need to focus more on hiring and getting rid of trouble makers. Takes a long time for changes to be made within the company.

    I worked at Planet Energy part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There were many reasons to love PE but the people and vibes were great. Made you love coming into work. Then new owners came in and destroyed everything. The place sucks now, would never work there.

    Cons

    The owners are number 1, culture, salaries, culture.

    Thank you for your review. It is often difficult to adjust to new management and big changes within the company after getting used to specific routines. Balancing all changes so that they are beneficial across the board is difficult. Time helps everything fall into place. We regret that you didn't get a chance to experience some of positive outcomes these adjustments put into effect but we are trying hard to improve and in ways everyone is happy with. Remember our databases? We used to be bad at those too.
