    Take the money and run

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPay 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.

    ConsHorrible, 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 Senior ManagementManagement needs to clean house, from the mailroom clerks to the vice presidents.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It was a paycheck.

    Power Plant Operator (Former Employee) Oakland, CA

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

    ConsOld 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 Senior ManagementPut some money into your facility and make it functional.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    Company lost its luster

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

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

    Selfish

    Chief Control Operator (Former Employee) Newburgh, NY

    ProsThey will pay a good salary

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    You never know if or when your job will be eliminated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate communicate communicate. Employees should not be the last to find out about things happening within the company.

    Was a great place to work before the downturn.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsBefore the downturn, compensation and benefits a little ahead of the curve. At one point the company actually cared about employee morale.

    ConsSince the downturn and aborted buyouts, working at Dynegy has become a daily game of wait and see. Not much forward thinking being projected.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication is key in times of hardship. Closed doors and eerie silence is not the way to ensure continued support from the bottom up. Try treating each employee as a valued stakeholders and not as expendable cattle. A lot of talent could be saved that way.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
