    I have been working at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Top quality employees and the opportunity to work in a fast paced environment that is a leader in the electric power industry.

    Cons

    Tends to absorb your life and you may struggle to achieve a good work/life balance while achieving your work-related goals and objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the good work and progressive research environment among a peer group that is second to none. Consider development of employes as community leaders in addition to industry leadership.

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for. The culture is very welcoming to newcomers but is very focused on research and working hard. If you are looking for great people, this is a great place to go.

    Cons

    Your potential for advancement is pretty limited if you are in a non-techinical field. Additionally, this is a Non-Profit company, so you may be able to find better pay depending on your skill set.

    I have been working at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have read other comments and just want to offer my two cents. Having been in two energy companies for decades, run my own business practice and done a nonprofit start-up,I have been around corporate and nonprofit America for some time. I am pleased with the EPRI organization. I have found doors open for viewpoints and the ability to get involved and help on solutions. I have already recommended EPRI to others.

    Cons

    Every organization always has to keep an eye on efficiency, communications, talent, finances, etc. It is a challenge across most all companies and nonprofits.

    Advice to Management

    The reputation of EPRI in it objectivity is a key to the good name it has built. Keep our eye on that ball, as we have in the past.

    I worked at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company is true to their mission and values. They provide cutting edge research that benefits the entire power industry. The employees are very devoted to their research, but the company allows healthy work-life balance. Most employees work schedules are flexible enough to allow them to work from home as needed.

    Cons

    Very little training, and employees are expected to be subject matter experts upon hiring. Very few opportunities to advance in your career within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to encourage direct managers to develop their employees much more. Employees seeking advancement quickly become frustrated.

    Pros

    The office culture is great. The people there are very kind and want you to succeed. They work on a lot of cool projects, and are always happy to answer questions about them.

    Cons

    Sometimes the workload can be a little sparse. If you intern here it is important to go out and talk to different project managers until you find a project you'd be interested in working on.
