Pros

Great benefits, Great time off

Cons

Promotions are based on time-in-grade and not merit-based. You will only get to the top if you know someone in the executive level.

Advice to Management

Operations has the ability to make decisions without taking the advice of the financial analysts/accountants, which is a very bad concept in theory and practice.

    Pros

    Working with great people that are well trained professionals.The pay and benifits are outstanding. They respect you as a individual.

    Cons

    If you do not like shift work this is not the job for you. Getting a transfer back to my home area has been difficult. TVA seems to be more concerned about hiring new trainees than allowing there current employees a transfer before training new people and promotoing them.

    Advice to Management

    Work on your transfer policy and get front line employees involved in decision making.
