    I have been working at California ISO full-time (more than 3 years)


    Leadership has a strong emphasis on communications and culture. It's always made clear how my personal goals relate to corporate goals.
    Company also has a strong emphasis on helping employees to build retirement plans.
    This company has spent more on my training than all of my other employers combined.
    Pay and bonuses are extremely competitive.


    Entrenched silo culture is still present and slowly being eroded away. This sometimes leads to political battles over what seems like minor issues, but it's becoming less and less common as time goes on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recent efforts to make individual members understand how their efforts affect the company are paying off, and corporate culture change, although slow, is clearly happening.
