Amazing place to work . . . We're All On The Same Team

Senior Representative (Current Employee)
Arlington, VA

ProsAmazing 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementListen 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.

    Senior Marketing Advisor (Current Employee)
    Arlington, VA

    I have been working at NRECA


    Pros: NRECA offers great benefits, a nice physical environment, and it has a great mission of bringing low-cost electricity… Cons: The politics, the politics, the politics. Certain parts of the organization are wildly disfunctional, with people getting let go for no reason, some made up… Advice to Senior Management: There needs to be a top-down commitment to fair employment practices, with supervisors held accountable for the treatment of their employees. Too often, people who… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
