    I have been working at Energy East full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Energy East -RG&E, NYSEG and CMP- is now Iberdrola USA a Spanish company. They are rebuilding the electric utility grid and spending billions of dollars on engineering design and construction.

    Cons

    IUSA pays well below market value so employees with Engineering and IT skills constantly leave for better pay. Most work is done by contractors and they get much better pay than IUSA employees. Iberdrola USA tries to hold their employees hostage. IUSA imposes non-compete clauses on the contractors preventing them from hiring IUSA employees. New IUSA employees are not told about this non-compete clause when hired. You go to work for IUSA then find out you can't apply for the much better paying contract jobs unless you quit first. Lots quit anyway and turn up at the contract companies.

    Advice to Management

    This isn't Spain. The US doesn't have 25% unemployment. Salary is set by market demand not by companies.
