I worked at MISO

Pros

Fascinating industry
Hard working teams to work with
Future longevity of company appears to be bright

Cons

Thick atmosphere of political operations. People keep jobs or are promoted to positions not because of work history or contributions but because of who they know.
In the current atmosphere of "downsizing" entirely too many people getting free paychecks. People who barely work each day, can't be bothered to actually do their jobs and/or are unprofessional in their approach to their jobs but who keep them anyway.
Huge power hungry egos allowed to get in the way of productive work and accomplishment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Positively champion those contributing ideas for implementing functional and structural change that have proven successful. Listen objectively and courageouly to feedback with a view to improvement. Honestly and openly walk the talk of "open door policies." Be willing to do the difficult work of making unpopular decisions management is paid to make wthout allowing subjectively and fear of what others will think to color professional judgment.

    I have been working at MISO

    Pros

    Good work environment
    And like the workforce itself
    Interesting and unique industry
    Good balance of work and life and employees recognition

    Cons

    Supervisors handout "peanuts" as work,
    lack of communication- supervisors always keep info too close to the chest which ends in double work or work not needed i.e. wastes all over departments
    unprofessional at times and
    "Two face" at specific level of supervision/management
    Contract workers aren't treated the same as permanent; more like "second class" and can use the fact contracted employees can be terminated easier with no feedback or good reason; they hide behind this fact and use it to ignore their responsibilities to employee growth and supervisors have hard time delegating

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Benefit ALL employees to be more open with communications and treat permanent and contract same besides the obvious that permanent employees have benefits; contractors feel like they are second class and do not receive feedback
