    I worked at Dynegy full-time

    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.

    I worked at Dynegy (less than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Dynegy full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Put some money into your facility and make it functional.

    Company lost its luster

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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

    Former Employee - Chief Control Operator in Newburgh, NY

    I worked at Dynegy full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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