Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employee engagement is built on a foundation of trust. Demonstrate that you trust your people, and we'll trust you back. Restricting internet access is one of many examples that you don't trust us.

    I worked at Xcel Energy

    Pros

    Good opportunity to work with lots of good engineers. Good opportunities to learn from industry seminars hosted. Also working ambiance and office setting was very good. Openness in providing feedback and performance reviews.

    Cons

    Sometimes work could get very routine - which I guess could be compensated by keeping abreast with latest info in power & energy sector and also with seminars being offered from vendors etc.
