  1. A great CEO will do a lot for a company if they will just follow his example and work together.

    I worked at EnergySolutions

    Pros

    The company is continually changing and it gave a lot of great opportunities to learn new technologies and processes. The CEO is very personable and cares about the individual. He is a great friend and it was an honor to be a part of his company.

    Cons

    It still feels like there are two or three different companies working together rather than one company. This is hard when you are managed by someone who isn't from the company they worked for. It also tends to set different standards between groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer look at company dynamics. Allow them to build the skills of the existing groups and attract talented people to work there. Value your employees because there are some things that you can't replace by hiring a cheaper worker.

    I have been working at EnergySolutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable company and lots of possible opportunities for growth (in theory). Thorough training in a great many Radiation Protection Disciplines.

    Cons

    Employee satisfaction not viewed as integral to company's long term success. Unrealistic view of company's position in the nuclear marketplace. Rampant employee dissatisfaction. Management team far too reactive as opposed to being proactive to changes in the industry. Outdated thinking and approaches to staffing and business decisions. Virtually no connection to staff and their interests and how it relates to long term plans. Rampant cronyism while real talent languishes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Times have changed and Management hasn't changed with them. Great place for employee training for future clients or competitors. Now would be a great time to alter the employee approach for the future. If not, replace the front door with a turnstile once the power-plants and other, more realistic, supporting companies look for employees. The Bruce Power MCR and the OPG ICR will require quite a bit of manpower, and they will be happening simultaneously.

    High time to stop assuming employees are lucky to be employed by you and wondering how many will stay when the power-plants and other companies really start looking for staffing solutions. Sad to think that only when many leave for greener pastures that Management will finally perk up and take notice.
