    Not a mature company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVery friendly co-workers in general. Nice flexibility for things that have to happen during a work day.

    ConsPoor pay, mediocre benefits, management makes extremely short sighted decisions based on short term profit. Company constantly spews anti-environmental propaganda to employees and attempts to get them to lobby politicians on their behalf. Meaningless "goals" set by management that have nothing to do with actual productivity or work but directly affect pay and bonuses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have the opportunity to be at the forefront of cleaning up the energy industry but you intentionally fight to continue polluting as much as you can get away with, try to do better.

    Stop making short sighted decisions for the company to increase your profits and start making long term decisions that make the company more efficient and functional.

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

    A good job, not a career opportunity

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDependent on your manager, can be a good flexible schedule for work/life balance, steady reliable company, good health benefits.

    ConsRaises are essentially cost of living-not a noticeable increase, promotions are few and far between, and generally only occur if someone leaves the company. Compensation is at the low-end for industry peers. Management is cliquish. Have heard of at least 4 initiatives to explore diversity and women's opportunities at the company but have never seen anything come out of it.
