Valuable nuclear experience and introduction to nuclear industry. Worked here you can work at any nuclear plant.

First Line Supervisor (Current Employee)
Chattanooga, TN

ProsExperience is valuable and could help your marketability.

ConsStressful, regulatory condition, change management too frequently, lack enough real diversity in leadership positions and with the traditional staff employees. People are treated as though they are expendable. Asked to work in high stress conditions with long hours over long periods of times. Many people are reaching their breaking point at being burnt out.

Advice to Senior ManagementHelp your first line supervisors be more successful. Add more women and other minorities to key management positions. Help them thru the cultural issues that have been in the industry forever.
