    Very stable career, yearly training budget for IT, average pay and very good benefit package.

    Stable work, but ultimately a dead end.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Davenport, IA

    ProsPart of the Berkshire Hathaway family, so your job is stable. The benefits are fairly good, if not inexpensive. Lack of holidays are offset by 2-3 floating holidays. Company takes safety seriously.

    ConsEmployees' skills are often mismatched with their responsibilities. Extraordinarily difficult to receive a promotion and nearly impossible to receive a raise. Middle management is extremely poor, particularly when it comes to hiring. Your starting salary will dictate your pay throughout your tenure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not be afraid to hire outside of your department, particularly those who are likely underemployed at the firm. 100% of the minorities in my office were hired by a single person. That's inconceivable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Everyone I have met truly enjoys what they do and maintains a good work life balance

    Engineer II (Current Employee)
    Des Moines, IA

    ProsBenefits and salary are above average and for the most part the work environment is relaxed. The HR department is solid, but they don't run the company like at other utilities. The internal IT department is lacking, but there is always a fellow employee to help you out.

    ConsThey are pretty cheap as far as investing in their own infrastructure and equipment. Computers and other equipment are low end, and I haven't seen any new office furniture anywhere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest some money in your facilities and improve internet connections in all headquarters to improve productivity.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Learned a lot of new things

    Engineer (Former Employee)
    Des Moines, IA

    ProsI really enjoyed working here because of the good pay, nice people, comfortable atmosphere, company lunches, and good locations around Iowa.

    ConsSometimes to much downtime meaning you may get bored or off task at times, Des Moines can be a bit of a struggle to work in at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up good people skills and fairness to employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
