    Pros

    Learn about big print processes, become familiar with printing technologies, expand graphics portfolio and knowledge, apply studio photograyph and AV knowledge, gain a number of mentors, and improve client communication. No day is the same, there are always new projects and tasks to fulfill and learn from. A great vision of service and cooperation. Positive environment, and great pay for an internship.

    Cons

    Extreme learning curve for those not accustomed to the "big league" desk jobs. Prepare to be stretched in multiple directions by all your supervisors giving you tasks. Interns tend to receive grunt work, so just have a good attitude.

    Advice to Management

    I'd encourage a more organized, online system for interns to fallow when it comes to warehouse duties. I would also encourage to be transparent about all responsibilities and what is expected from the beginning.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, good "Teamwork" attitude among hourly hands.

    The plant where I work there is very little if any communication or cooperation between management and hourly people.

    Pros

    Basin Electric cares about its employees. It gives back to the community and offers employees many opportunities to give back as well. Our cooperative business model puts people before profits and holds true to our values of accountability, integrity, innovation and community commitment. The pay and benefits are extremely competitive and the family-focused environment provides for work-life integration and flexibility.

    Cons

    Tough to find any. I bleed Basin blue, and all my coworkers do as well.

    Pros

    Hopefully someone with leadership skills will buy them out.

    Cons

    No leadership or team works skills. Basin is full of want-a-bees and clueless Narcisists. Do not go to work for them!

    Advice to Management

    Leave and let anyone else run the company!

    I have been working at Basin Electric Power part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Basin has some of the best benefits out there and they truly appreciate their employees. There are many opportunities for advancement. Since Basin is cooperative, people always come first from employees to consumers. Although every business needs to make money, Basin is one of the most people-friendly businesses you could find. People stay with this company until they retire because the company's culture helps employees take pride in what they do.

    Cons

    No place is perfect, but overall, a career at Basin Electric is desirable.

    Basin is a cooperative. It's people first, organization second. Employees know they work for people, not for profit.
