    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) as an intern (less than a year)

    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.

    I have been working at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people. All around, loved everyone I worked with.
    Laid back atmosphere.
    Free food (and good food at that) often once a week.

    Cons

    Never got the feeling that what I was doing mattered much, but I was only an intern.
    I didn't always feel properly trained to do what I was asked to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Current Intern - Power Delivery and Utilization Intern in Charlotte, NC
    Current Intern - Power Delivery and Utilization Intern in Charlotte, NC

    I have been working at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - The ability to witness and work on projects that tackle various problems in the PDU industry.
     - Great for undergraduate of graduate research experience
     - Great for helping to lead you in the right direction in your PDU career
     - Very busy as an intern as opposed

    Cons

    - Since EPRI is more of a "subject matter expert" and "industry leading" company the opportunities for an intern to move to full time are slim. They would like you to gain experience which makes sense.
