    I have been working at Colorado Springs Utilities full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place to be for job security and benefits. The people tend to have a positive outlook and want to be part of the community.

    Cons

    Leadership does not support the employees and does not abide by a consistent behavioural standard. New supervisors are left to "fend for themselves" with no direction or support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish organization wide communications so every area is consistent and knows what the goal is. Do not pick a random number for headcount reductions. Work on smart solutions that make sense. If this means a rate increase, then so be it! There is only so much you can whip a horse before it turns up dead. (Reducing headcount in an already stressed and overloaded environment will send employees over the edge and unable to cope... I predict increase in ailments for employees.)

    I worked at Colorado Springs Utilities full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent for long term employment and retirement opportunities.

    Cons

    Poor understanding of how to communicate well with employees. Ineffective at staying current in technology and implementing modern solutions in a timely manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to spend a little time talking to the grass roots employees and understanding not only what the real issues are but how to effectively implement solutions.

    I have been working at Colorado Springs Utilities

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are better than many employers and the employees are very involved in philanthropic activities and volunteering in the community.

    Cons

    Lack of skilled leaders and a sense of entitlement is abundant. Inefficient processes lead to a certain level of complacency and job dissatisfaction for high performers.
