    Pros

    Considering the state of Idaho, Idaho Power is one of the best employers with great benefits. They touch most of southern Idaho so there are a number of locations to work at. The have several sides - electricity supply and generation so there are a number of areas to either start in and/or move to. Has the feel of a large family work environment.

    Cons

    Many of the positions are internal and you work in a cubicle. Good pay for Idaho, but not a lot of upside potential. Like anywhere, there are a few supervisors that don't know as much as they should about what their employees really do and challenges they really face. A lot of advancements based on who you know and who you hang with.

    Advice to Management

    More advancements based on proven work skills and/or background rather than being part of the club.

    Current Employee - Software Developer in Boise, ID
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The company has great benefits and the people are great to work with.

    Cons

    The company is unfriendly to the environment, killing salmon to generate power. The company is extremely bureaucratic and slow to do anything. It is as bad as working for a governmental agency. The company has far too many employees who are just waiting to retire and are not doing any work.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the number of supervisors and middle level managers by at least 20%. Eliminate the pension plan and replace it with an improved 401K plan.
