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 worked at MISO as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The nature of a lot of the teams here means that you will work on a wide variety of problems. Interfacing with a lot of stakeholders means you get a very broad perspective on the electricity industry, making this a great place to make contacts and start a career. Horizontal mobility is above average for an organization this medium size. Hours are good and the company culture is pretty relaxed (except when it comes to security/data protection).

    Cons

    Many of the employees seem bored with their jobs and uninspired by management. Although you get to see a wide variety of problems, you don't necessarily get deep into them and develop solutions. Serious software development is done by outside vendors. Change is very slow (nature of the industry).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what gives employees grief day-to-day (such as IT processes). Focus on improving these things and employees will be more motivated.

    I have been working at MISO as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Very good benefits. A lot of different activities help staff from different departments to socialize. Flexible work time. Good place to work

    Cons

    I didn't yet find any shortcomings in MISO. A little bit distant location. Often takes long time to get back home at 5-6PM
