Useful utility, but conservative

Project Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY

Pros- New York - best city in the world!
- At least what you do results in a product people need (electricity)!
- Strong culture

Cons- Hard to break in to the "insiders" club
- Poor internal IT services
- Facilities at HQ are more than a little antiquated
- Military style decision making - chain of command is sacrosanct
- Emphasis on operations results in strange payment traditions - first line supervisors make more than some senior managers in staff positions

Advice to Senior Management- No Vice President of Sales or Marketing? Really?
- Pick a strategy, any strategy - but the current non-strategy (do nothing) isn't too inspiring

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
