In flux due to merger

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsVast amount of long-term employees with great expertise and loyalty.

ConsThis company has competing goals, low morale and several quiet layoffs. In addition, due to public scrutiny over response to storm outages, the CEO was forced to resign.

Advice to Senior ManagementClarify goals, make it clear how individual contributions help reach those goals and communicate much more.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
