I have been working at NRECA full-time

Pros

NRECA offers excellent benefits and has attracted a lot of good, long-term employees who always keep in mind they are working for the members who own the local co-ops. They take lot of interest in the health of their employees.

Cons

It has become a very unsettling place to work. A lot of talented people have left either voluntarily or by pink slip, contributing to a major morale problem. Decisions are made by supervisors more by the seat of the pants than with any well thought-out pattern and "saving ones territory" has become the norm, unfortunately.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The level of communications with mid- and lower-level employees is very poor. The computer system is antiquated. Can't remember the last time anyone in my unit received praise for going above and beyond the call of duty.

    Aside from some sub-par management, it's a great place to work.

    I have been working at NRECA

    Pros

    Community feel, pleasant people to work with, competitive salaries, training opportunities.

    Cons

    Major changes taking place with new CEO have created an unstable feel. Some departments appear to have better management than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the employees who have given so much of their lives to the members of the electric cooperatives.

    I have been working at NRECA

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Mission is worthwhile
    Good location
    Employees are dedicated
    The members of the association are some of the greatest people that you will get to deal with
    Pay is better than most associations

    Cons

    Management is very top heavy. Too many supervisors are paranoid and do not encourage employees to grow or learn new skills.
    IT does not keep with with the times.
    Web site is grossly out of date.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let change happen. Stop being defensive and opposing changes desired by the new CEO. The new CEO is a breath of fresh air. Let her enact her plans. Stop being obstacles.
