    Pros

    The pay is good and the local company (subsidiary or EPCOR in Canada) is small enough to have very little bureaucracy. They look to treat employees right, good benefits with a superb focus on safety!

    Cons

    The Company has entrenched management with very little room for upward movement for middle and upper management.

    Advice to Management

    When there is not enough room to promote look to allow for more lateral movement of employees so that they may keep learning and enjoying their job.

    If you have a job that you are even partially satisfied with, stay. Turnover rate is higher than a McDonalds drive thru

    Pros

    I had the best Leader as my boss for the first 8 years working for the company

    Cons

    I was on vacation when my next supervisor was hired, micromanaged everything, would not take any suggestions from anybody, I consider that person as a "Boss" not a LEADER.

    Great Co-workers, easygoing, willing to train apprentices. Job Security and good pension. Challenging and trade school is paid. Home every night to be with family. Upward mobility and outside schooling paid for.

    Need an updated training facility to attract and maintain top employees.

    Pros

    -good pay -good benefits -paid for PPE -job security -training -after hours school paid for -good work/life balance

    Cons

    -very little buy in by employees -management is getting too old to manage the changing work climate -preach safety but no follow through -promotions seem to come to "buddies" of upper management -useless committees that just waste time and money -absolutely no over sight for management, but preach fiscal prudence

    Advice to Management

    Audit managers, make people retire when they can no longer do their job properly, follow through with safety focus...

    Pros

    A great company to work for if you want to grow your career. EPCOR's reputation/expertise in the areas of water & power has led to their growth/expansion for the past century and that's something that will continue into the next, etc. If you work hard, there are lots of opportunities to move around the company and because there's so many different areas, l've seen lots of people jump to something new.

    Cons

    Quite a complex/large company. Different areas have different regulations/processes, so you'll see differences between areas of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
