Slow and Safe Company

Intern (Current Employee)
Sacramento, CA

ProsIf you like working at slow and safe pace, where changes generally go at a turtle's pace then this is the place you want to work at. Pay is good, benefits are good, and the people that work here are good.

ConsThe pace is too slow caused mostly by communication issues. The company is very top heavy, those at the bottom will generally be pushed aside by management in critical projects. A utility company should and needs to listen to the folks on the ground. There is a general lack of standardization and sharing of information which ultimately are communcation issues that can really slow a company down during important changes caused by government regulations or natural disasters.

Advice to Senior ManagementA system of standization is needed. There is also a need to greatly emphasize the sharing of information between employees and employment. Every project should only have people that are 100% committed to the project, this speeds up the project by providing better organization and ensuring that resources are appropriately allocated towards the completion of the project. In other words, get the project done on time, on budget, and with no BS or extra sugar.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
