    Pros

    Pay is soso, some benefits are good, medical not up to par with same type of companies, plant accounting is well run, other departments are clueless. Upper management searching for new acquisitions to expand the company.

    Cons

    Upper management is clueless of what is going on in Accounting. Abuse of sick time, employees disappearing for hours, lack of proper planning for acquisitions, insufficient personnel leading to ridiculous overtime hours, dangerous to employees driving home late at night, unproductive. Some staff working hard, others hardly working.

    Advice to Management

    Staff up properly, take a look at your management in place, some of management is very incompetent and pretends to be in meetings while they are out shopping. A lot of equal opportunity with unqualified people.

    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

    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.

    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.
