I worked at Knoxville Utilities full-time (More than 8 years)
Stable, good benefits, freedom to go after topics of interest, and rarely expected to work over the standard 40 hours. Good place to learn skills and develop solid work ethic.
Good place to learn skills, but terrible place for career advancement. Advancement is very slow and primarily based on years of service and number of people managed. Very little work culture and management is generally uptight due to public-facing nature of company.
Advice to Management
Invest in your employees who make a difference, and work on shattering the glass ceiling. Bring in more young talent to pick up the slack as the baby boomers continue retiring.

Providing utility services to residential and business customers has proven to be an excellent idea for Knoxville Utilities Board (KUB), an independent agency that serves the city of Knoxville, and parts of seven surrounding counties. The multi-utility provides electric, gas, water, and wastewater services to more than 439,000 customers. The company accesses electric power from the Tennessee Valley Authority. KUB's natural gas supply comes from the East Tennessee Natural Gas pipeline. It also maintains five treatment plants, which provide water and wastewater services.
