    I had great freedom to innovate and learn

    ProsGood customers, good equipment, adequate pay, good benefits.

    ConsInept management at every level; it's lost a third of its revenue from electric sales for that reason.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn your business and trust your employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    An Organization With Too Many Employees - Total Mediocrity at its best

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsLCRA has outstanding medical benefits. They offer great retirement packages. The main headquarters are in a beautiful area of Austin - overlooking Lake Austin. A positive work experience at LCRA depends entirely on the division and your direct supervisor. Elaborate retreat centers and facilities.

    ConsAustin is a very left-leaning city with many environmental activists. LCRA is a haven for these people. If you are of a conservative Republican mindset and work for a liberal who is also an environmental wacko, you will experience a bumpy ride. As far as my experience, bad reviews and write-ups came out of thin air, often delivered by second-hand gossip. Men who work under a female supervisor have a particularly difficult time. My supervisor caused me to spiral into deep anxiety which led to numerous panic attacks. HR is a joke at LCRA!! This organization is very political, since they are the largest wholesale supplier of electricity and water in Texas. When review time for your supervisor comes up, his/her boss brings you and all the other people in his/her department for a "team review" of the supervisor. Say anything bad about your supervisor and your co-workers will take you down. On two review, our group warned the manager that our supervisor was a bully. After these "reviews" my supervisor ramped up her attacks and criticism. By the way, the LCRA is overseen by a board of directors appointed by the governor of Texas. When board meetings occur, you would think you were watching a group of holy men and women. As an employee at LCRA, if you have any contact with a board member you are to report it immediately.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are too many departments and employees at LCRA. Don't allow environmental wackos to establish programs without a complete fact check. You hear positive comments about the power divisions at LCRA. WATERCO is the division with most of the problems with lots of politics and worthless programs and projects.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good company with a strong mission.

    Senior Project Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsHealth and retirement benefits
    Paid vacation and holdiday leave time
    Location
    Mission of the company
    Community involvement with surrounding counties and customers

    ConsLimited career path
    Beurocracy and politics limit professional growth
    No recognition or reward program for top performing employees
    Lack of leadership

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease look past personal agendas and political gains for the wellfare of your customers and employees. This company will continue to lose great talent unless something changes and will forever be stuck in mediocracy.
