  2.  

    Overall, Iberdrola gave me a wide range of experience in natural gas distribution while providing a good pay.

    I worked at Iberdrola full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You are allowed a fairly wide range of autonomy in your work. They pay well (holidays are paid) and provide solid benefits. The job security is great because natural gas distribution isn't going anywhere and with the aging workforce they will soon be hiring like crazy (about 50% of their workforce will be retiring within the next 5-10 years). The people are also very friendly. The employees I encountered were all very friendly.

    Cons

    If you are looking to be a hot shot moving up to management in no time, this is not the job for you. The culture values employees who have been faithful and have paid their dues in time with the company. The lower management positions don't allow much flexibility and require someone who follows the books with no deviation. Senior management is quickly filling with people from spain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Opportunity to travel abroad if hired by the Spaniards.

    Rewarded for being friendly with upper management and not due to your merits or work ethics.

    Fire upper management and start fresh from scratch.

    I worked at Iberdrola

    Pros

    Great benefits and a very generous vacation package. The workplace environment was very comfortable - a very enjoyable place to be overall.

    Cons

    Nearly impossible to get enough work to do. Career advancement difficult - more of a who you know than a meritocracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to ensure that employees actually have work to do. I got the impression that managers hired people just to comply with a directive to bring in international employees. Nobody ever gave much thought as to what they would do.
