I have been working at WECC

Pros

The benefits are fantastic, the schedules are flexible and most of the staff are great to work with. It's also a casual environment.

Cons

Depending on the position you're in it can be a LOT of work. The company has experienced some growing pains and those in the top two or three positions don't seem as connected or invested as their predecessors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the time to get to know staff, take responsibility and slow down those who do the work.

    I worked at WECC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and flex time approach are phenomenal. The old staff that was there when i started was amazingly knowledgeable about the EE industry. They are all gone though.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment where in upper management made decisions without communication to staff implementing policies and programs remained woefully understaffed with no aim of success at the highest level. The staff below incompetent upper management made due many times in spite of those that were tasked with leadership and many times to the determent of their own sanity and career. I fulfilled no less then 4 jobs during one point in my tenure, was verbally abused on more than one occasion for managements own failings. When put in a hostile work environment with a coworker and complained to management, they later tried to move the coworker into a direct supervisory role after the fact because they had forgotten the whole thing. This led to my near immediate departure shortly thereafter. it was only upon my departure that management even acknowledged work done, and value to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Board of Directors fails in their roles as stewards of this once great organization as they have not instituted wholesale change but rather are blinded by earnings of one business unit that is operated independently of the whole. There is good somewhere, but the newer (4 years and less) management staff is toxic to the culture that was the WECCIE.

    I have been working at WECC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are often great and so are the benefits. WECC has a nice building and used to have a good reputation but not so much anymore.

    Cons

    The top management doesn't know what they're doing and are not well connected. They're mostly bumbling and not bringing in any work like WECC used to. Nobody really has any faith in the top couple people or in the board and most people who were best at their jobs have already left for other companies that appreciate it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly? Quit. Step down and let someone who's more equipped to run this type of organization fill those shoes. You may be very good at other types of work but are not cut out for leadership.
