I have been working at Black Hills Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

9/80 schedule, nice people to work with, potential to learn a lot if you're outspoken about what you want to achieve

Cons

Pay for E&P is below average, smaller company so there's not much room for upward movement, not a lot of promotions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do everything you can to keep those really good employees. They train everyone well and then employees tend to leave for better pay.

    Pros

    One of the VPs stated that a trained monkey could do most jobs. So, it’s a great place to work for trained monkeys. Your opinion during meetings is also very important. It helps management determine how best to throw you under the bus.

    Cons

    God forbid you ask for time off while paid as salary. Family illness including cancer is not acceptable, because it’s not been planned. Improvement surveys only help point out the employees to be ostracized and ridiculed. HR will sincerely ask opinions and if you answer, the punishment really starts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Senior leadership; lose the VPs and Managers that act like sophomores and take some leadership classes yourself. The mirror you look into is the reflection of the failure within this company. Your degree does not make you a leader; it only shows that you can blend with the other sophomores.
