Pros

Always advancing technology
Good pay *(see cons)
Some really great people to work with (depends on level)

Company vehicle with full personal use
Great benefits

Cons

When times get tough, corporate heads get shifted around and promoted, while the people that make the company tick get laid off.

No regards for the employee's personal life (triple shifts are not uncommon due to "lean" workforce)
If the customer wants it, the customer gets it, with the extra load placed on the employee.

*As field service, you troubleshoot and fix problems that the customer should be able to fix at a rate much lower than if you worked for the customer. (avg underground electrician makes $100k+)

Energy industry, specifically the coal industry depends heavily on the federal gov't, and Obama has stated he will bankrupt the industry! It WILL get worse in the USA.

Advice to Management

Back up your employees. Don't cut the spokes off the wheel.

    Pros

    They pay very well, benefits and time off is good

    Cons

    Management in certain areas seems to have no idea what they are doing. They don't think further ahead than the current situation and in some areas, actively work to undermine each other. In certain departments, direction is seriously lacking. Employees don't know what they are working towards or what the overarching goals for the organization are. Many employees have been hired for a specific job, and when they come in, they find that the job duties they were promised are different from the ones they end up doing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people to management because they were good at their previous job. Take a good look at areas and make changes to put good, strong leaders into management positions, or nothing will get better.
