TXU Energy operates in the country’s most competitive retail electricity market and the race to hire and keep great people is no less competitive. That’s why the company continues to invest in its Analyst Momentum Program, which immerses participants in a 30-month introduction to the market and the company.

The program is just one of the ways TXU Energy finds, develops and keeps great people – and it doesn’t operate in a vacuum. Participants fill real jobs across the company and department leaders expect them to bring new ideas and enthusiasm to their various assignments.

“Over the next two-and-a-half years, each class member will rotate through several positions in different areas of the company,” said Laura Campos, a manager in TXU Energy’s customer contact group and the program manager. “That’s in addition to classroom-style trainings, tours of related facilities and projects that stretch their analytical and presentation skills.”

Successful participants have the opportunity to continue as regular TXU Energy employees when they finish their rotational assignments.

“While it’s a significant challenge to move around and jump into new areas, the program gives the participants exceptional insights and points of contact across the business,” Laura said. “Those things are invaluable when it comes to the work that they take on after completing the program.”

TXU Energy revamped and broadened the program in 2013.

“At the end of the program, we’ll have well-prepared, well-rounded individuals who will have a greater understanding of the Texas electric market and what TXU Energy is all about,” Laura said.

The 2016 class includes an Illinois native with a STEM MBA from Texas Tech; four Texans with bachelor’s degrees from Texas universities; and two master’s candidates from Texas.
