    I worked at Imperial Irrigation District full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    most employees have 9/80's and 4/10s schedules.
    good benefit plans.

    IID Energy provides electric power to more than 145,000 customers in the Imperial Valley and parts of Riverside and San Diego counties. As the sixth largest utility in California, IID Energy controls more than 1,100 megawatts of energy derived from a diverse resource portfolio that includes its own generation, and long- and short-term power purchases.

    As a consumer-owned utility, IID Energy works to efficiently and effectively meet our customers’ demands at the best possible rates, tying our area’s low-cost of living directly with low-cost utilities. We accomplish this by producing 30 percent of our power supply locally, using efficient, low-cost hydroelectric facilities, steam generation facilities, as well as several natural gas turbines. We emphasize environmentally friendly operations by employing as many “green” resources as available. Our diverse resource portfolio provides our customers with some of the lowest cost rates in southern California.

    Cons

    not much opportunity of career growth.
    bad upper management, they change upper management people in short term.
    weather is too hot in this area, summer gets to 120 F.

    With more than 3,000 miles of canals and drains, IID is the largest irrigation district in the nation. As a public agency, IID strives to provide the highest level of service at the most economical price while still preserving the unique ecosystem associated with this working landscape. Following are a list of quick facts about IID's Water Department.

    I have been working at Imperial Irrigation District part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay is good, probably too good for the level of talent acquired.

    Cons

    Very difficult to get an opportunity if one does not already have, "their foot in the door."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give non IID employees the opportunity to apply. I check the "job postings" page frequently and while they tend to have 4-5 + postings they typically are all ( IID internal applicants only ). This only furthers the stereotype that IID is a "family business" that only lets "family" in.
