    I have been working at Idaho Power full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    People are amazing. The company reflects values of Boise and work life balance is great!

    Cons

    Very conservative approach to technology. Risk adverse utility, so the pace can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Innovate! A lot of employees have great ideas listen with an open mind and take a chance on some of them....

    IPC is starting to become a "CYA" company. Does not value innovation.

    I have been working at Idaho Power full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good. Benefits are okay. The top three executives are smart, genuine, authentic, transparent individuals. I'll go as far to say they are great leaders.

    Cons

    I think the great leaders are being "played" by HR. HR creates the political environment and can't be trusted. Too much finger pointing and not enough transparency. Some managers rely on "spies" to get feedback about their employees. The same managers listen against their employees and frustrate them to leave.

    Job descriptions get "dumbed down" to allow "favorites" to qualify for a promotion.

    High performers are penalized by carrying to load of non-performers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate incompetent middle managers and recognize the "Super Stars" middle management is holding back. Teach the difference between leadership and management to your current "leaders". Pay attention to HR motives. Ask yourself why inexperienced "new hires" in a department with tenured employees are providing "Strategic Direction" instead of the tenured employees from the same team.

    Pros

    Friendly place, nice people, I enjoy for the most part.

    Cons

    Too many cliques. Not enough career advancement opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what your people are really doing. Too many managers were promoted without having the necessary skills for their positions.

    Pros

    Idaho Power is a great, solid company, and a stable place to work.

    Cons

    Very tough to advance. Direct managers seem to be poor at communicating. Projects don't necessarily consider all the important stakeholders, or end-user's needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the little people.
