    Wonderful work atmosphere

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
    Paducah, KY

    ProsWonderful co-workers and management. Safety is always first priority. Everyone is free to espress their ideas and concerns without fear of criticism.

    ConsPay is less than competetive. Outgoing employees are not replaced, leaving more work for those who remain.

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

    Pretty decent company

    Engineer III (Current Employee)
    Piketon, OH

    ProsGood pay for the southern Ohio region with low cost of living, low crime, and quiet neighborhoods, and benefits are good also. Coworkers laid back and friendly. Good training and travel policy, for engineering group at least. Job assignments are somewhat interesting but not as challenging as a national lab.

    ConsThere is uncertainty about survival of the company for the next couple of years. Some of the physical structures and buildings are aging. The faucet-water is brown and water-jugs are brought in. Nearest big city is 45 or 90 minutes away, depending on where you live. The area close to the plant is a poor Appalachian.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey might have done a better job in communicating to, and working with, the DOE to secure the loan guarantee in 2009, in order to avoid using this "co-operative agreement" or whatever one calls it. But considering the extreme political motivation of the Obama administration I'm sure not a lot of people could have done better.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great people and casual work environment that helps to balance out the red tape. Look elsewhere for a challenge.

    Engineering Intern (Current Employee)
    Paducah, KY

    ProsLaid back, casual work environment. Not stressful. Management is friendly, and understanding. You don't put in long extra hours. Internal politics are kept to a relative minimum.

    ConsThe red-tape is high here. Regulated by the Dept. of Energy, and Nuclear Regulatory Commission, it's very difficult to get much done. You just get used to it after awhile. In Engineering, the work is not very challenging or exciting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to derive methods to give more flexibility to the middle managers, and streamline our internal procedures to accomplish tasks quicker.
