    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Current Employee - Engineer III  in  Piketon, OH
    Current Employee - Engineer III in Piketon, OH

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    They 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.

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

    Current Employee - Engineering Intern  in  Paducah, KY
    Current Employee - Engineering Intern in Paducah, KY

    Pros

    Laid 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

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