Pros

Excellent benefits package, 401(k) match, friendly work environment, diverse employees and job opportunities, professional development highly encouraged, stable industry, excellent opportunities for college students and recent grads

Cons

Pay could be better, but hard to complain given above-average benefits, promotions/pay increases are hard to come by so be sure you're satisfied with starting pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fully satisfied with the leaders and upper management I've had the opportunity of working with

    Current Employee - Lineman
    Current Employee - Lineman

    Pros

    I have several years in as a lineman, So I have earned a few weeks vacation. This part is a 20 word minimum ,so il just keep typing since I really can't find anything positive to say at this time. I hope the company changes it's ways.But I doubt it will.GREED !!!

    Cons

    They want you to work for sub pay as a lineman. Compared to other lineman in our area. Management will lie to you and the Union contract is non existent. The supervisors try to get a crew to do unsafe practices just to get the job done. SHORT CUTS !!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give respect and pay back to the workers who have made you a record profit company. $600 million profit in 2011.
