    I have been working at Basin Electric Power part-time for 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.

    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.

    I have been working at Basin Electric Power full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. The best retirement programs in industry. Solid future, people will always need electricity to power their lives. Great, rural, peaceful locations. Travel between facilities via private jet.

    Cons

    Headquarters is in Bismarck, ND. The workforce is set, once a person is on board, they rarely leave and termination is extremely difficult. The company tends to be headquarters focused rather than generation focused. They sometimes forget where their revenue is made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on career pathing employees. Train the workforce and develop supervisors. There is an economic disadvantage to moving from union to staff. This leads to a much lower quality of supervision than should be presented.
