Never get too comfortable - you may be out of job without much notice

Pros

Great benefits, great pay, work life balance - far better than most private companies. Very culturally diverse and a clear focus on promoting women.

Cons

Back door politics, constant lay-offs and re-hiring (except those laid off), poor public image, constant leadership change, nepotism, favoritism, poor management/leadership and motivated entirely by profits. Senior management is "Untouchable" and so very unapproachable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a continuous look at your leadership and get rid of the poor performing managers. Position the company as the "employer of choice". Hire a top PR firm to clean up your public image. Begin lay offs from the top down and practice Change Management.

    Great benefits and salary, great location to live

    We are a command & control, compliance culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting as if your primary motiviation is to stay out of trouble. We won't become a leading utility with that mindset.
