    I worked at MidAmerican Energy full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits were above average. I was able to work from home. The company did pay for my TWIC card. The base salary was competitive.

    Cons

    NO training or support. Never ending conference calls. NO air card yet required to be in the field 75% of the time. Being in sales/energy consulting in ERCOT is way different than PJM, NYSO or other area in the nation. We'll planned execution strategies are necessary to penetrate any market but especially one that has been around since deregulation began. The company just really didn't set people up for success.

    Pros

    There are no pros. This company will mess with you and your fellow employees.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Upper management say's one thing but does something else. No clear direction. All is by word of mouth so they won't be culpable. Expensive out of pocket health insurance (high deductible-$3k). Accounting games with jobs to show more capital than maintenance. Not transparent with the public on what happens to the electrical system. Cuts corners on maintenance. Will work you to the max. without any acknowledgement or compensation. Min raise in salary. Management uses threats of termination to direct what they want done. If you give 2 weeks or more notice upon quitting. Company will sandbag you so they can cheat you out of your P.T.O.. and try to mess up your work record. I doesn't make a difference if you are a goof off or stellar employee-they will treat you both the same-bad!! You do not want to work here unless you are very desperate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice because they are all crooked from the director level up to the top.

    Pros

    Stable, training budget, average pay and very good benefit package.

    Cons

    Not a very good place for talented people as the company doesn't really need the best IT people out there, but the good ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be able to evaluate IT talent.
