    I have been working at Xcel Energy

    Pros

    great benefits, still offer a pension, some freedom to move internally, able to get things accomplished

    Cons

    leadership moves internally too much. Benefits slowly shrinking. Pay not up to market standards. Long tenured employees slow to change or adopt new ideas. Too many IT systems that don't connect, and are no longer supported by vendors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your systems up to a current standard, and allow systems to share data! Serious need to look at real workforce planning. Half the people can leave in ten years, and there is no good plan to backfill.
