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

    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 Management

    None

    Exciting projects but over-worked, under-paid, and under-valued staff.

    Pros

    Global company, good pay, multicultural environment. Exciting new projects, good learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Lack of trust, motivation and the performance evaluation scheme is fixed where even if your team are all high achievers, 25% must have low-performance ratings. Long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Better work-life balance. Promotions should be on merit and not on nepotism

    Be happy you have electricity or gas. It's a miracle based on the management

    Cons

    Nepotism and incompetence. You are employed to support learning connected employee careers. The product is insignificant as they pass their costs onto the customers

    Advice to Management

    Go Away
