Pros

Compensation - if the company awards the incentive bonus - is quite high.
If a person is interested in nuclear plant operation or maintenance, this is a great place to work.
The location - for a nuclear plant - is a strong plus.

Cons

The company expects all employees to live for work. Don't let a relative in the hospital interfere with your job.
It is often difficult to get vacation time. One might have to work 16 hour days to get a week off.
Don’t expect recognition for a job well done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to speak with one voice Don't let dissent in supervision dilute priorities.

Stop killing yourself and expecting employees to do the same.

    Pros

    Depending on the department: My supervisor is very flexible when needing time off or short notice vacations. It really depends on who you work for and what side of the business you support.

    Cons

    Where to start?! The CEO (Mike Morris) is all about the shareholders. He could care less about the environment or his employees. As long as the money grubbing shareholders are happy, he is happy. Distribution is ok to work for. This side of the company isn't so shady. Generation is a beast. Too many "good boys" working for upper management who do not deserve (or have the education) to hold their position. Forget about promotions or raises- been on a hiring freeze for 4 years. Unless you are a suck-up or have a friend who is higher than you, you will never go anywhere up in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all of your current upper management and directors. Hire EDUCATED people who can run the company based on need and not own personal wealth. You are a utility- act like one.
