    I have been working at EnergySolutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoy working here because I get along with my co-workers and boss. The benefits are great and they help with your retirement. I personally do not take their health care because I take my military benefits, but the people I work with have never complained about their plans.

    Cons

    This is just a personal con but I do not feel like I could grow in this company. There are not that many younger people out here so there is not a great training/mentoring program to get the younger crowd involved.

    Pros

    Great group of people working at the company. Smart, friendly, established engineers with experience in the nuclear industry.

    Cons

    Good chance you could spend a majority of your time on one project. However, if you ask, they will try to move you around to different work within the office/area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to improve relationship with employee continuing education or specified training.

    Pros

    OK benefits, friendly colleagues, interesting projects. The workplace had a good atmosphere and did a pretty good job with work-life balance.

    Cons

    Everything changes every year: management, available benefits (including insurance carriers!), available work, CEO... Not very many opportunities to grow in the job. I'm not sure I like the long-term outlook of this company. They're way too focused on cost these days. Zero warning before I got laid off.

    I worked at EnergySolutions

    Pros

    They are a stable company with good salary and benefits.

    Cons

    They have had a confused mission over the last 5-6 years, and have made personnel decisions that are questionable at best. Running a landfill and trying to run a site with waste is a conflict of interest that is difficult to overcome. I have worked for management that was more focused on tasks than the people they needed to get the tasks completed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I recommend the Fed. Services management get out and talk to their employees. You have lost work because you didn't. Take care of your people, and if you do, you will be more successful in taking care of the client. Letting good employees go, because it looks good to the client is shortsighted. The good employess will end up with your competitors, helping them win the work you lose.

    I worked at EnergySolutions

    Pros

    Starting a career and wanting some mentoring from experienced managers.

    Cons

    To many old school managers, which limits technology software use.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on core strengths and maximize training around those strengths.

    I have been working at EnergySolutions

    Pros

    The people are very nice, but you never seem to be given an opportunity to show your worth. If you do its seems as if no one is appreciative of the extra effort you put in.

    Cons

    Do not think of interns highly and are very unlikely to ever give you a full time job offer,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you talent management system is a good idea, but the need to focus on getting more contracts.
