Pros

There is an opportunity for growth if you want to work hard and take on new challenges, however it can take a long time.

Cons

The work can get repetitive and become less of a challenge. If you like to take on new tasks it can be boring work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize talented employees and give them challenges in order to grow. The industry can fluctuate so reassure employees during the hard times.

    Pros

    As a regulated utility, it is fairly stable in comparison to the oil and gas industry.

    Cons

    Overwork is encouraged, even demanded. No support for employees when the inevitable burnout occurs.
    As a regulated utility, it can tend to have an overly bureaucratic mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people instead of using them up and discarding them. You would then earn their loyalty and keep their experience for the benefit of the company.

    Pros

    Compensation program, flex days, benefits plan

    Cons

    Very top heavy, incompetent management, lack of innovation, poor morale, people locked into pensions that don't want to be there, slow to get things done, people promoted into management that do not have the people skills, large and unwieldly burocracy, low employee morale, traditional, inflexible, employees not treated with much respect,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees when they are dissatisfied with their management.
    Promote competent people from within.
    Reduce the layers of management.
    More management training programs.
    Don't rely on pension as the main retention tool.
