Pros

You are provided a company van and are paid pretty well for the work you do. There is an overall feeling of teamwork.

Cons

You work a lot of overtime year-round, takes a long time working for the company to earn vacation hours, and sometimes the work feels monotonous.

    Pros

    The company will be around for a very long time, very stable. The pay is reasonable and they a have a fairly decent union on the electric side of the company.

    Cons

    They do not promote pass entry level management. Very few people actually get a chance to move up to the corporate level even if they are qualified. The natural gas side of the company has a very weak union and has a strong "Good ole Boy" system in place.

    Advice to Management

    The company really need some diversity at the corporate level. There is a real disconnect between your field employee with college degrees and upper management.

    Pros

    As steady as they come in terms of market sector performance and overall financial health. Good work-life options. Rock solid benefits. Company still has a pension.

    Cons

    Entrenched staff. Rotation and development opportunities abound, but if you get your heart set on a particular group, it may be some time before that specific opportunity comes your way.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
