Dynamix and never dull. If you are self motivated the learning opportunities are boundless.

I have been working at NRECA

Pros

If you are a person who wants a career and not just a job, you'll love NRECA. There is on-site Microsoft Training opportunities for all Office Products and SharePoint. You are encouraged to continue training opportunities, persue professional certifications and secondary education. (They offer up to $8,000/year for college!)

There are no clear career paths, but in my short experience - if you show iniciative, you will advance either by applying for another open position or a rewrite of your current responsibilities.

The benefits are truely about as high as you can find anywhere, with the exception of huge bonuses. They do offer smaller incentives in the form of gift certificates, but you won't get rich. What you will have is a place that never gets dull, great benefits, work life balance, and a comfortable salary with great retirement benefits.

Cons

A little slow to get rid of bad managers and tolerance for unkind management behaviors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consistent accountablility of all mid level management

    I have been working at NRECA

    Pros

    The benefits are great. The people I work with and the members are great. Training that is offered to staff is good.

    Cons

    The Prima donnas that work here. The can't get off there duff to xerox something or call a cab. Rediculous! Management is slow to get rid of low-performing employees which is frustrating. There seems to be favoritism in how certain people are promoted and treated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that have management training or get them professional training.

    I have been working at NRECA

    Pros

    Amazing opportunities to partner with other professionals throughout the Association, working together to make a difference for the member-owners of electric cooperatives nationwide. Innovation and creativity are not only supported, but encouraged. The NRECA work ethic is almost legendary. Interdepartmental projects with work teams are frequently formed with great results.

    Cons

    The workload can be heavy yet good managers are aware and do what they can to minimize the load. Business casual is only on Fridays and in the summer (Memorial Day through Labor Day). Some of the less engaged employees are somehow allowed to remain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and do not intimidate them when they suggest that some deadlines may be unrealistic. Treat your employees as the true resources that they are.
