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.

    Pros

    Good sense of community in the asociation. People are nice to work with and there isn't a lot of competition, there is a team work environment.

    Cons

    Lack of promotion opportunities. We just had our first lay off and the association is cutting on a few benefits (including tuition reimbursement). They are now showing that they are like any other company out there. It's all about money and we cut from those who it will hurt the most. Oh also forgot to mention no casual dress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are your most important asset.

    Pros

    NRECA offers great benefits, a nice physical environment, and it has a great mission of bringing low-cost electricity to large swaths of the US. And some departments, like HR and IT, are absolutely great places to work.

    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 reason, the phase of the moon--who knows? The epicenter of problems is around insurance services, with the marketing department also having its share of issues. Beware, too, bullying supervisors--there are quite a few in this organization, and HR will not do anything to help you. Check out the various discrimination complaints and wrongful termination issues floating around out there--NRECA has more than its fair share. So disappointing for an organization with so much potential, and so much good that it brings to the communities it serves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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 are perceived as high-performers are allowed to mistreat their direct reports and internal business partners. That is morally wrong and undercuts NRECA's business mission at every level.
