    I worked at TVA full-time

    Pros

    The people you work with are great.

    Cons

    They have no problem at all interpreting federal working hour limitations in a way that involves violations.
    Management will outright lie to you.
    Items that should be normally handled with discipline get blown way out of proportion if caught by OIG. Over a 4 year period I saw 4 good people get fired for items at any other utility would be addressed with discipline.
    If you aren't from here or aren't a yes man you will never get promoted.
    They will honestly argue over one hour of OT.
    Once I had been there for 12 hours, something happened to the plant and they told me I had to stay over night then because I was the duty manager I'd have to stay over on days too.
    Managers never see their people, many never make an effort.
    Nuclear Safety is not a priority.
    The operating staff at a nuclear facility needs to be paying attention to the reactors, not babysitting the craft and collecting data for Management Review Meetings. Operators spend 90% of their effort and time doing stuff that has nothing to do with operating the reactors.
    You will never, and I repeat never get vacation.
    The Design Basis issues concerning flooding and dam breaks should sincerely scare the public. Especially since TVA Management from the plant level up turned a knowing blind eye to them
