    I have been working at Memphis Light

    Pros

    They do a good job of providing continuing education oppertunities. Very stable company where you don't have to worry about losing your job.

    Cons

    Things move very slow and employees are against any type of change. Every major decision has to get approval from city council.

    Pros

    Co-workers are awesome to work with. Work live balance is great, no overtime necessary.

    Cons

    No upward mobility, lack of training. Slow pace environment not for the young at heart. RFP process is horribly, it takes entirely to long to make a inform decision.

    I have been working at Memphis Light

    Pros

    Great benefits with lots of vacation time. Relatively steady job with average pay for the Memphis area.

    Cons

    Every time I tell people where I work I recieve groans and grimaces. Known more for its corrupt politics than anything.
