    Pros

    Great benefits. Good pay. A lot of opportunities.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime. Ongoing changes in job responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    20% indefinite mandatory overtime for Planners with creates difficulties in keeping a work/life balance. Planner $$ values, performance metrics and trend toward micromanagement brings down morale. Consultants can sit with us for a few days but they will never understand the true scope of a Planners job. Operational minimum was eliminated for Planner 2's which used to be a desirable job. Now most Planner 1's have no motivation to become Planner 2's (exempt w/ higher title & a couple dollars an hour more pay is not appealing). Planning Supervisors who have been Planners are the best input on how to improve the overall Planning department, not consultants.

    SUGGESTION: Planner 1's who are interested in becoming Planner 2's should be allowed to test for the position or become upgraded after a few years just as Designer 1's are upgraded to Designer 2's. The pay won't change much so an upgrade shouldn't hurt. If they are knowledgeable, they probably deserve it anyways. Most Planner 1's do a significant portion of Planner 2 work anyways.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, some co-workers, some locations

    Cons

    The company is not the same, middle and senior management are on a rampage promoting their favorites, and laying off or ignoring the hard working. It doesn't matter how much you know or how hard you work, it's all about who you know. If you want to get ahead here, you had better know the right people. The company made big mistakes at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating station, which lead to it's closure. All those employees were let go. Human Resources, Customer Service, and IT are all laying off also, and it's not just 10 people. If you're starting your career, this is not the place to be….think before you apply here. If you don't mind getting overlooked for someone less qualified because they know someone here, then you'll be fine. But if you're ambitious, seek growth, and want to promote, run. Your hard work will be appreciated somewhere else. Employees tried to tell the leaders the treatment they received from managers, and those employees were laid off.

    Advice to Management

    None, they don't listen anyways.
