    Long range planning great sign for the future

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO

    ProsKCP&L has committed to constructing a large efficient generating station to supply customers with efficient reliable service to its customers. This large capital investment will help maintain the value of the company for a long time to come assuming Congress and the President don’t destroy the power industry with CO2 cap and trade legislation.

    Great thing about this industry and in particular this company, just less than 1/2 are near retirement offering plenty of room for career growth.

    ConsThe company has been in a constant state of flux over the last 8 years. The industry has been up and down several times impacting all power companies but also during this period KCP&L has taken over 300,000 new customers (through acquisition), hundreds of new employees, the construction of a new generating unit and moving the corporate head quarters. This makes it difficult for one to know who to turn to for information.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication, communication, communication...Need to keep employees abreast of changes. More information from immediate supervisors is most important.

    Stick with the long range planning. Too many companies are interested in short term profits and forget that they need to stay in business for the next decade...century, etc. I won't be retiring in the next 10 years and would still like to have a place to go to work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
