I have been working at Tri-State Generation and Transmission full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The salary is competitive and the benefits are fair. There is a defined retirement plan which is hard to come by these days. There is education reimbursement to encourage further skills.

Cons

There is not enough encouragement towards initiative. Project planning and follow through is lacking. For many, there is too much of an old boys network.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too top down.

    I worked at Tri-State Generation and Transmission full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Since this is an energy company, employment is secure. The benefits are good. Overall, co-workers are friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    The good old boys' management style is alive and well at Tri-State. There are only one or two females in top management level positions. Top management does not ask for input from the senior managers or from the employees doing the work.

    The HR Department needs a complete make over. The department is out dated in their thinking and procedures. For example: they do not provide an 'Anonymous Suggestion Box' nor do they use a 360 degree appraisal / review process. Unfortunately, employees do not enjoy the benefit and balance that a 360 degree process would provide. Employees should be allowed and encouraged to seek anonymous input from their co-workers, inside and outside customers. Appraisals / reviews from one's manager can be extremely baised leaving the employee nowhere to turn. God help you if you don't see 'eye to eye' with your manager.

    HR should be training their supervisors to be good managers. All managers should be on the same page with regard to being flexible, etc. My manager had absolutely no 'people skills', no complements, no flexibility. My manager was always right and I was always wrong. As an employee, I never felt appreciated or valued. Team building does not exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the HR Department is up with the times - using the newest and best - thinking and procedures. The current depoartment leavres much to be desired.

    Pros

    This is a stable industry hence you have relative job security. Salaries and benefits are competitive.
    There is a very good continuing education program for job related degrees.

    Cons

    Autocratic, old school, good old boys. New ideas are not solicited nor appreciated. This is a job that does not offer much personal satisfaction, simply a check at the end of the week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should look at the high turn over of the newer employees and ask what is going on here. Simply being one of the good old boys (literally) does not cut it.
