    I worked at Calpine full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Better benefits than most (but pay is super low)

    Cons

    Most political organization I have ever worked at. No one cooperates or works with each other in order to minimize personal liability. Even with departments (looking at you, IT and compliance) managers are highly competitive and their only goals are self-serving. A lot of employees exist who are either incompetent and/or barely working. A handful of these unfortunately happen to be VPs. The company refuses to invest in it's costs (IT, compliance, safety, etc.) and it gets what it pays for. Everyone is stressed out and afraid to deal with anyone outside their department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage departments to work together to solve company problems. Pay your employees what they deserve to stop getting people out of the bottom of the barrel. Use leadership skills to bring employees to where you want them, not fear to push them there instead. Critically evaluate the performance of each employee and get rid of the dead weight. Make an effort to reduce the unnecessary work load on the each department and carefully reevaluate each department's role.
