Utility Industry Leader

Project Manager (Former Employee) Palo Alto, CA

ProsThis company was founded to provide research and direction to USA utilities. They have been on the forefront of project management in research and development of power delivery in the USA. They are well respected within the utility industry and is a great place to work for engineers and scientists who want to be valued for their input and provide valuable input and discovery into the utility industry of the USA and the world.

ConsManagement doesn't care for non-engineer staff. If you are not a member of the engineering staff, you are not valuable. Seems to be a constant struggle for upper management and budget dollars.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen when administrative staff informs you of issues. You have lost many good employees by listening to the wrong people who had motives other than what was best for the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
