Pros

Low stress and not demanding in terms of amount of hours worked. No accountability by mgmt for any work done so free to create own job description

Cons

No recognition for work completed. No input on career direction. No accountability by mgmt allowing other employees to coast and doing no real work.

Advice to Management

There is no advice I have for mgmt since there is no team environment that would allow them to listen to advice.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to get into the power generation industry if that is what interests you. The company really is world-class in terms of leading the industry. The benefits package is very fair. The new CEO is younger and could potentially change some of the company's old ways.

    Cons

    The company is very "old boys club". Most of the upper managers have worked their way up in the company since it's early days (the company is only 50 years old) It is hard for young people to gain respect of managers, coworkers and company "lifers". The company is/was very very very antiquated in terms of work/life balance. At the time I left, there was no "flex-time". Meaning as a salaried employee you had to work until 5 every day no matter what or take vacation time. You couldn't for example, work 7-4:30 on a day if you had to make it to the kids' soccer games by 5.

    Advice to Management

    Management certainly needs to respect and value education. They also should rapidly modernize the culture if they want to retain employees for the long term.

    Pros

    Friendly people to work with, supportive environment, recognize talent

    Cons

    Micro-management from upper management and even exec level shows lack of confidence and promotes dependency.

    Advice to Management

    The bigger picture is often missed because management is too involved in the day-to-day. Learn to let go and trust that your employees know the goal. Try to motivate instead of criticize.
