Pros

Good benefits, nice place to work.

Cons

They have their 'favorites' and if you are not one of them, you are subject to 'downsizing'.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When you let someone go, at least tell them why! Don't just give the excuse of 'downsizing'. Especially when less then a year later you hire for the same position again!!!

    I worked at Alliant Energy

    Pros

    Good work environment but nothing special. Pays well. Mature IT environment. Expected to work around 50 hours. Lots of good tech to work with.

    Cons

    Stagnant at the management and team leader level. At some point everyone gets prompted to senior with nowhere to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Makes some real changes in management. Create some real career paths. Stop laying people off every two years. This makes for a fearful environment.

    Pros

    The people are, by and large, very good to work with. Management allowed employees enough authority to do their jobs without being a hinderance.

    Cons

    The benefits are definitely not great. Also, even though it is a public utility it is not immune to the economic down turn, since the closure of the Janesville GM plant and ancillary support companies has had a major negative impact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To recruit and retain great employees requires that they stay abreast of job descriptions and salaries. Managers should be able to do the work of their staff if the need arises, not just manage people. Having a manager who does not understand what their staff does and why is not particularly beneficial and can cause road blocks.
