    Current Employee - Operator in Columbia, SC

    Pros

    Scana has great beneifts, if you contribute the max match to the 401K the company will match 6% and than they also give an additioanl 5% to another retirmenet program, for a total of 11% to the employee

    Cons

    The knowledge does not necessarily translate outside of the industry, so if you want to leave, you are stuck in the same job field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no real advice for management at this time. They do a pretty decent job at managing the company.

    Good place to work

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Cayce, SC
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Cayce, SC

    Pros

    SCANA is overall a great place to work. It has great benefits. The education reimbursement program is great also.

    Cons

    The atmosphere is quite traditional and old fashion, however. There are a lot of older people that work there that are basically waiting to retire. They don't care about producing good work. It's very traditional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management tolerates employees who do not perform or have other employee issues. It causes low morale in certain departments and it seems as though the people that cause the problems don't suffer any consequences.

    Current Employee - CRS  in  Charleston, SC
    Current Employee - CRS in Charleston, SC

    Pros

    It can eventually open up a lot of doors within the company. Pay attention, work hard, do things right, take advantage of opportunities. You'll be able to move. It may not be the fastest move, but it will be something. You will learn, grow, and eventually get there. When you do you will have a good foundation to stand on.

    Cons

    They demand a lot of you. They can be forgiving, but they watch everything. They will judge, test, etc to see exactly how things are going on - if they are legitimate and on the up and up. Once they really know, then they will act on it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    DO the renewables. Just find a way.

    Pros

    Good company! Sometimes appears to accelerate the well-liked regardless of knowledge.

    Cons

    Takes forever to advance..... Lots of older employees (retirement eligible) that love the company and remain in place. Sometimes these folks are collecting a paycheck and retirement at the same time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CAP on years of labor. Move over and bring new, more technological ideas.
