I have been working at Xcel Energy full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

You will likely have a job for life if that is what you are looking for. There is a significant mix of contractors that work with full time staff and you get to meet some bright individuals. The pace is not very intense. The benfits package including the paid time off is very good.

Cons

Utilities are a slow paced industry with little inovation. The raises are typically small and the bonuses are not very impressive. Excellence and people that strive for excellence are rarely found in this industry. And if you happen to be one of these people the compensation guidelines are too rigid to recognize you. Way too much emphasis placed on years of service.

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    There's no mobility in being able to change jobs and there is definitely a good ol' boys mantality.
