    I worked at Calpine

    Pros

    Diversity of people in staff positions. Flexibility in work schedules. Exciting energy environment as a power producer. The opportunity for change is still present.

    Cons

    There are silo of information pockets within the organization. Managment blind spots regarding the diversity and the true intergrity of people as well as those who are actually completing the tasks. Lack of diversity in management and supervisory roles. Lack of clear developmental or rotation plans for all employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Attempt to socialize within the work place outside of the groups in which you are familiar or typically associate outside of the work place. Be objective in your decisions and attempt to make decisions on factual research not group think.
