    Poor

    Maintenance Mechanic (Current Employee) Brilliant, OH

    ProsPay check every two weeks

    ConsReactive management not Proactive, poor benefits, management, pay-scale, promotions through friends not my knowledge and education,

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to employees, was involved in Lean Process and was told what to say and not to say they didn't want the truth to get out (Cardinal Plant). Be Proactive not Reactive, Ever wonder why Cardinal plant is not in the money look to leadership in place from top to the bottom.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A waste of 10 years

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) Columbus, OH

    ProsDepending on the department: My supervisor is very flexible when needing time off or short notice vacations. It really depends on who you work for and what side of the business you support.

    ConsWhere to start?! The CEO (Mike Morris) is all about the shareholders. He could care less about the environment or his employees. As long as the money grubbing shareholders are happy, he is happy. Distribution is ok to work for. This side of the company isn't so shady. Generation is a beast. Too many "good boys" working for upper management who do not deserve (or have the education) to hold their position. Forget about promotions or raises- been on a hiring freeze for 4 years. Unless you are a suck-up or have a friend who is higher than you, you will never go anywhere up in this company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire all of your current upper management and directors. Hire EDUCATED people who can run the company based on need and not own personal wealth. You are a utility- act like one.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Run Run Away

    AEP Unit Operator (Current Employee) Moundsville, WV

    ProsIt is one of the few good paying jobs in my area of the Ohio Valley. Many of the employees are good people.

    ConsPoor management to say the least, constant promotions of unqualified people. Lack of people, leadership, constant forced overtime. Poor working conditions, company first people, last policy. Management doesn't know company policy and/or laws. No honest or ethical people in management

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote educated, honest people in positions, that know and understand policy. Be honest with the employees and don't be afraid to admit you're wrong when mistakes are made.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
