Working at Tri-State is very frustrating and the company is poorly managed.

Pros

Tri-State compensates their employees very well. The benefits package is good. They are flexible when you need time for family matters.

Cons

The company is managed in a strictly top-down manner. Top management very rarely seeks input from the specialists who work for them, or even the senior managers who report to them. Unfortunately, these managers are not as knowledgeable as they think they are and the systems they implement don't solve the problems they are meant to address.

There is a lack of teamwork. New and redundant systems are put into place as different mangers attempt to solve the same problem in different ways.

The company has lost it's focus on serving it's members/owners as internal focus has shifted to pleasing management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Seek input from the specialists you employee. Recognize that no one, no matter how smart, can know everything. Focus on serving the members/owners rather than growing the company.

    Pros

    Benefits.
    Compensation.
    Energy hardly has trouble in any economic situation.

    Cons

    No teamwork.
    Company is very traditional and conservative in its ways primarily because older people work there and are from rural areas.
    People have been there so long, nothing changes because they do not know what exists on the outside.
    You cannot make suggestions to change things; they are very set in their ways.
    Cannot move up based on performance or skillset because of politics.
    Lots of backstabbing.
    Very disrespectful.
    Things are done very inefficiently because employees do not update their skills and do not have an idea how to properly implement an infrastructure.
    Money is spent on products and technologies that do not end up being used because the employees do not know how to implement those products.
    People are there that are so close to retirement and need to move on; they are so checked out that management is non-existent in the network dept.
    Management is unapproachable and are more concerned about tee-time with VIP (state officials and politicians)
    Infamous co-op management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Steady and secure employment. Most of the tools and budget to do your job are provided.

    Cons

    Employees who consistently perform at a high level are not rewarded. Salary increases are not based on performance. Employees then become complacent and have no drive to perform better work. Managers are not trained to be managers. It is so hierarchial, it feels like you are working in the culture of 30 years ago. If you are at a lower or non-managerial level, your voice will not be heard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Will someone please bring some excitement to this company. HR policies and HR managers need a complete overhaul. Other managers need to be trained on how to be good managers and leaders. Where are the team meetings? Where is the enthusiasm? Please give everyone a voice and respect. Please move past the old culture. Do you realize that turnover is high and will get worse as the economy gets better?
