    Former Employee - Engineer in Richland, WA

    I worked at EnergySolutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    OK benefits, friendly colleagues, interesting projects. The workplace had a good atmosphere and did a pretty good job with work-life balance.

    Cons

    Everything changes every year: management, available benefits (including insurance carriers!), available work, CEO... Not very many opportunities to grow in the job. I'm not sure I like the long-term outlook of this company. They're way too focused on cost these days. Zero warning before I got laid off.

    A great CEO will do a lot for a company if they will just follow his example and work together.

    I worked at EnergySolutions

    Pros

    The company is continually changing and it gave a lot of great opportunities to learn new technologies and processes. The CEO is very personable and cares about the individual. He is a great friend and it was an honor to be a part of his company.

    Cons

    It still feels like there are two or three different companies working together rather than one company. This is hard when you are managed by someone who isn't from the company they worked for. It also tends to set different standards between groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer look at company dynamics. Allow them to build the skills of the existing groups and attract talented people to work there. Value your employees because there are some things that you can't replace by hiring a cheaper worker.

    I worked at EnergySolutions

    Pros

    They are a stable company with good salary and benefits.

    Cons

    They have had a confused mission over the last 5-6 years, and have made personnel decisions that are questionable at best. Running a landfill and trying to run a site with waste is a conflict of interest that is difficult to overcome. I have worked for management that was more focused on tasks than the people they needed to get the tasks completed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I recommend the Fed. Services management get out and talk to their employees. You have lost work because you didn't. Take care of your people, and if you do, you will be more successful in taking care of the client. Letting good employees go, because it looks good to the client is shortsighted. The good employess will end up with your competitors, helping them win the work you lose.

    Good place but with high employee turnover

    I have been working at EnergySolutions

    Pros

    The people are very nice, but you never seem to be given an opportunity to show your worth. If you do its seems as if no one is appreciative of the extra effort you put in.

    Cons

    Do not think of interns highly and are very unlikely to ever give you a full time job offer,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you talent management system is a good idea, but the need to focus on getting more contracts.

    No opinion of CEO
