    Pros

    Great salary, good benefits, good people at lower levels, good location. Flexible work hours, understanding supervisors.

    Cons

    Leadership team was unapproachable and arrogant. Never ask them a difficult question or expect to get made fun of. Leadership team was focused only on their own money and their golden parachute. Glad I'm gone and glad they are too!

    Advice to Management

    The people are your greatest asset! Learn it, love it, execute on it!

    Pros

    The Pay is great. The employees are good people. They have really good sick, vacation, PTO time. Also, the 401K I hear is awesome.

    Cons

    Dynegy is has no concern for their employees. They are profit driven at the expense of their employees. HR department is either invisible or doesn't care. Its all about who you know in the company. They promote on who you know and not on merit and work ability. Dynegy is a very clique-ish company. If you are not in the with the in-crowd you will get passed over on a lot of promotions.

    Advice to Management

    They should learn to listen to their employees more. They are the heartbeat of the company.

    Pros

    A number of years ago, Dynegy had qualityl Exec. Management and it was a wonderful place to work. Employees were valued and treated with respect.

    Cons

    Very bad morale when new Exec.Management came aboard. Exec. Management was very disrespectful. Negative work environment. Office was an open concept - no privacy and very noisy.

  7. Great people but upper management could care less about the "little guys"

    Pros

    Pay is good. There are some good people who make working there enjoyable. Medical benefits are mediocre, but they do give you sick time and vacation time, along with 401k.

    Cons

    Horrible, ignorant people scattered throughout the organization. Management refuses to listen to employees. Worst HR department ever. Anyone with any talent leaves if they can.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to clean house, from the mailroom clerks to the vice presidents.

    Pros

    Decent pay and the hours weren't bad. Fellow coworkers were good people to work with.

    Cons

    Old decrepit facility held together with "bailing wire and duct tape". Lots of deferred maintenance on very old temperamental equipment. Every call to provide power to the grid was an adventure and not a good one.
    Little potential for advancement and not much direction from management from a remote headquarters..

    Advice to Management

    Put some money into your facility and make it functional.

  10. Company lost its luster

    I worked at Dynegy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay was good and great people that weren't in management.
    Good place to work for if you are starting out.

    Cons

    Management was stuck on themselves. Philosophy of "Do as I say not as I do"
    Lack of mentoring
    Departments lacked competent talent

    Pros

    They will pay a good salary

    Cons

    They are selfish people that will think nothing of shutting down a plant, while reaping all that they can from their employees and the local community before heading out of town. Dynegy spent more on lawyers in order to get out of paying what was due to their employees than they would have just to settle with them to begin with.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some morals and concern for the human beings that work for you, no matter which part of the country they may come from.
