    Pros

    the benefits are good especially the health scheme
    the employer allows for one to advance in the career, one can work and study comfortably- the employer is flexible.

    Cons

    some staff members are too much into other peoples'private business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    let us open our minds to other ways we can increase our customer base- probably look into solar and wind energy. let us work more on customer satisfaction-our customers are our future. let us make electricity and thus Kenya power the no. 1 option for anyone looking for a reliable source of energy..
