    I have been working at Integrys Energy Services full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Was a great place to work at first. It was interesting work, good pay, decent benefits, and pleasant coworkers.

    Cons

    Have completely lost their way in the last couple years. Became very structured with lots of "red tape" that didn't benefit anyway. Middle management is very bloated and weakly skilled. Employees at all levels used to have the freedom to contribute and explore their own ability but now it has become very structured and "cookie cutter". It's a good place to work if you like just getting assignments to do with little freedom or input on how they're done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce middle management and number of supervisors and "leads". Hire some fresh talent that is eager to learn and make a difference and most importantly give them the freedom to make a difference.

    I worked at Integrys Energy Services as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Outdoor work, meeting new people, different location every day

    Cons

    deceptive and secretive, not sure where you stand with supervisors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open and train the new employees better so they can actually do the work right. They are very, very deceptive and set you up for failure after promising a career. It's cheap labor for a few months so then they can fire you and get a new crop of unwitting people to waste time and get nowhere.

    Solid company, with plenty of pros and cons - much like any other company, I suspect.

    I have been working at Integrys Energy Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities for growth, a positive environment where teams and people come together and collaborate to work towards common goals.

    Cons

    The usual suspects (cons) plague Integrys Energy Services. Most employees in most companies will tell you they are overworked and underpaid. It didn't help that we had a large downsizing a few years back due to the economy (and how the financial impact tied into how we did business). It seemed as though half of the staff was reduced, but only a quarter of the workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time addressing real issues such as where money is being wasted and how to address it. The easiest way to increase the bottom line is to reduce waste and overhead. Then maybe we could afford a few more staff members to decrease the workload and work towards how to acquire the new business we desire.

    I worked at Integrys Energy Services

    Pros

    Integrys is run by competent, quality people. Senior Management - and mid-level management - are very down to earth people who are approachable, and do a great job of showing how each group fits into the bigger picture. Although business was slow during the end of my time there, when times were good there were great opportunities to try new things. Integrys Energy Services had a number of satellite offices, and did a good job of integrating those offices and making them feel part of the bigger organization.

    Cons

    Not always a con, but Integrys can sometimes be too conservative. They have talented people a strong balance sheet ,and it would be nice to see them aggressively try to reach new markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with what you're doing. Integrys is a quality workplace.

    I have been working at Integrys Energy Services

    Pros

    It is a challenging place with lots of work to be done by all. There is never a dull moment.

    Cons

    Very top heavy, especially at corporate and board of directors. Currently each person is doing the job of three to keep staffing down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people more. Keeping a few more people to improve moral and letting people work under 50-60 hours a week is needed.

    I have been working at Integrys Energy Services

    Pros

    - Employees are generally nice.
    - It's a stable work environment for people who just want to do their job. Overall it's a very middle of the road company.

    Cons

    - Employees have little enthusiasm for their work.
    - It's a utilities company so there isn't much revolutionary work going on.
    - If you have a healthy level of ambition I would look elsewhere.
    - Boredom and monotony are the big negatives.

    I worked at Integrys Energy Services

    Pros

    Regional offices, working remotely
    A few very strong leaders, many weak ones
    Senior management very accessible
    Lots of internal job possiblities before the restructuring
    Was a "people" oriented company - until it wasn't

    Cons

    Many many weak leaders, including senior management
    Unstable environment, mostly stemming from the inability of the board to steer
    Job variety streamlined as the company restructured
    No longer has the values that once made it a great place to work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the basic principles of being a "people" company.
