    Good Place to Learn and Grow

    Senior Engineer - Shift Operations (Current Employee)
    Carmel, IN

    Prosthis organization allows you to grow and become a better employee. I really enjoyed working in the real-time group, and it is a good place to work overall. At times that work is challenging and the hours are long but everybody is in the fight together and you do not feel like you are left alone. Also the flexibility of hours and the management styles of most of the managers are very good and promote a work-life balance

    Consas with most small companies it can be a bit cliquish. However most of the managers are fair and adhere to the rules and apply them to say the same to all the people. The processes around software changes are quite cumbersome and can be frustrating if you are in certain groups such as real-time operations, but it is still a good place to work.

    Advice to Senior Managementmy advice to management would be to have more technical skill development for most of your employees. There are a lot of smart people at this company, but if you don't develop your peoples technical skills did it doesn't matter how smart they are. Also if the human resources department could have less say on promotions and moves within the company that would make things a lot better. Often times the human resources manager more or less can dictate who can or cannot take a position regardless of what the manager's stance is.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Challenging, rewarding work with great pay and benefits.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Carmel, IN

    ProsYou'll be surrounded by high skilled, well-educated professionals who trust you to do your job without anyone hovering over your shoulder. Plenty of autonomy (in my experience) in the IT Operations division. If you're not right for the job, you simply won't make it through the door. The organization is expanding in a marketplace that needs it now and well into the future.

    ConsOn-site amenities at the Carmel location could use an update. A company this size should think about offering an on-site cafeteria, and the gym needs to be expanded.

    great place for learning, horrible leadership/management

    IT/Applications Department (Former Employee)
    Carmel, IN

    ProsThe only good thing about working at MISO was the opportunity to learn something new every day. So many departments with highly educated people doing a variety of different things. You could work there 20 years and still not know everything everybody does.

    ConsI worked in the IT/applications area. Terrible management. They hire people who know the energy business, not people who know IT. Big pretense of having proper processes in place, when the people who design the processes governing IT understand nothing about how IT works. Vast majority of people I worked with in IT were very dissatisfied with their career path options and would move into other departments of the company just to get a promotion and decent salary increase. This is a company where the business departments have people highly attuned to their subject areas, but the IT departments do not. If you're someone who has experience with software development, you will be frustrated with the anachronistic practices and beliefs, and you will be unable to change anything for the better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn that you need to hire people who know their subject areas, and the subject area of the IT departments is IT, NOT the energy industry.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
