ProsMany jobs have relativley good pay for the area
4 day work week option
Supports the local community and supplies needed rural electric service

ConsVery high health insurance deductible.

Some managers exhibit an unspoken favoritism for local Mormon employees.
The bonus program has such low payouts that there is virtually no incentive to accomplish the goals.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not cut technical staff to the point that the remaining staff gets burned out and leaves resulting a total loss of experienced employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
