    I worked at Idaho Power full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Pay and Benefits, most departments are great to work for.

    Cons

    The IT department has a very young management base. Management requires employees to put work above their own lives and families. Salary employees required to work 50 plus hours weekly. Top down management style that takes little or no account for employee opinions and suggestions. They still use a Bi annually employee review system that concentrates on the negative with little or know reward for the outstanding employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re structure the entire management tree.

    I have been working at Idaho Power

    Pros

    Compensation is above average
    Pension plan
    Subsidized downtown parking

    Cons

    Bullying is allowed
    Power is obtained by owning and not sharing information
    Training opportunities are only allowed for department pets
    Time off for care of family is "allowed" but then held against you as not being committed to company
    Managers do not know how to lead
    Inconsistent feedback
    You are not given tools to do your job successfully
    Managers rely on "spies" (this told to me directly from my supervisor) to get feedback on your daily activities and perfomance
    Leaders have inappropriate relationships with subordinates (taking vacations together,etc)
    Completing projects on time is more important than completing projects successfully

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the obvious...high turnover in a department (8 out of 13 in 3 years) means that something is wrong with the leadership. Have realistic expectations of your employees and put your money where your mouth is when you say "Family is First".
