    Pros

    I see no good reason to work for a company the does not care about the devastation you put on a mans family with your corporate buy outs and greed. You have the money and lawyers and time to do what ever you want, without any remorse on what you do.

    Cons

    Energy Solutions just purchased a small company in Clinton Tennessee. They walked in with their Suits and Lawyers and cut everyone's pay, took their benefits away, and basically said if you don't like it you can leave. One guy lost $7.00 and hour and another $5.00. One guy was even let go because he did not have a GED, been with the company 20 years. This is just another example of Corporate Greed. We are talking about a small town who's average rate of pay is around $9.00 an hour. And most barely make above minimum wage as it is, Everyone was given an employment application and was told they would review it. These people have worked here for years. What a P.O.S.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate Greed.

    Pros

    Stable company and lots of possible opportunities for growth (in theory). Thorough training in a great many Radiation Protection Disciplines.

    Cons

    Employee satisfaction not viewed as integral to company's long term success. Unrealistic view of company's position in the nuclear marketplace. Rampant employee dissatisfaction. Management team far too reactive as opposed to being proactive to changes in the industry. Outdated thinking and approaches to staffing and business decisions. Virtually no connection to staff and their interests and how it relates to long term plans. Rampant cronyism while real talent languishes.

    Advice to Management

    Times have changed and Management hasn't changed with them. Great place for employee training for future clients or competitors. Now would be a great time to alter the employee approach for the future. If not, replace the front door with a turnstile once the power-plants and other, more realistic, supporting companies look for employees. The Bruce Power MCR and the OPG ICR will require quite a bit of manpower, and they will be happening simultaneously.

    High time to stop assuming employees are lucky to be employed by you and wondering how many will stay when the power-plants and other companies really start looking for staffing solutions. Sad to think that only when many leave for greener pastures that Management will finally perk up and take notice.

    Pros

    I cannot think of any pros.

    Cons

    The upper management doesn't care about the employees. There are no trainings or meetings to discuss employee career path and expectations. The upper management only cares about making money for themselves.

    Pros

    Only good thing about this work hours as you get every other Friday off

    Cons

    No growth opportunity, no raise or bonus in the right way. You have to put in lot extra hours and there is compensation for time-off or any other. Senior Management does not value their employees, does communicate well with employees and always showing the false picture.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating employee as resources not as a cost entity. Have some time of feedback for Senior Management from the employees and you would know what employees think about the senior management. There is clear favoritism in this company and the recent data would indicate why young talent is leaving the company.

    Pros

    Use to be good place to work, with supportive managers.

    Cons

    Has changed CEO's 3 times in last 4 years. Went from private, to public, and back to private in 4 years. Constant changes in organization structure. Lousy communication, no support system. Changed focus from client, project, and employee to strictly bottom line. Only concern seems to be any more is making the numbers so management can collect their bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach regarding establishing trust. Trust is not something you can gain by forcing your employees to sit through a speed of trust workshop. You need to stop over looking policy and procedures violations from upper management. Establish open and honest communication. Stop cleaning house of all your seasoned long term employees for cheap inexperienced ones just so you can look like you improved your bottom line to get your Bonus.

  7. No opportunity for growth and management makes false promises.

    Pros

    I do not think there are any positive things to say.

    Cons

    Top management to manager do not care about employee self development, they use employee's credential for bidding process but does not support employee to get professional certification or help them maintain their licences. No proper merit raise even if you put extra hours to meet dead lines, performance review system sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to employee and have a proper plan for career advancement, do not force people to stay in the same job even though they are doing a great job. If there is no career advancement it would be difficult to retain talent. Have proper performance review system and merit raise should be based on performance.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunities in various field within the nuclear industry. Many types of jobs at sites around the world.

    Cons

    Senior management does not have a clue about competency vs. putting long-time, familiar employees in positions of responsibility, and it is taking down an entire division.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and see that insanity is expecting a different result when you put the same people in charge over and over, or even give them greater responsibility to demonstrate theiir incompetance.

    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.
