    MidAmerican Energy has a strong focus on safety. The company does not tolerate any kind of unsafe or unethical behavior. Team-oriented. Excellent performance is rewarded.

    The technology is a bit behind the times.

    Seek out other health insurance options.

    Great place to work. Provides wonderful PTO and other benefits that keep you motivated. They look into attitude and personality so a great community feel.

    Offices are out of date compared to other IT places of employment. Working remotely is not allowed, even though they expect you to work on call.

    Pros

    Your experience will depend on the department you are working in. The company strives for excellent customer service and achieves it.

    Cons

    Poor healthcare benefits; inconsistency across departments especially with work from home and PTO; HR is inconsistent with policies and procedures - one Sr VP has destroyed many careers to protect herself. Lower and management is over worked and lacks time and opportunities for training.

    Advice to Management

    Value all employees, listen to them, reward and stop the penalizing behavior for a mistake.

    I worked at MidAmerican Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you were hired before july of 2000 you get a match on your gross pay 401k and a , health retirement account.

    Cons

    Hired after that you get alot lower % match on your 401k and its just on your base pay 40 hrs. and no retirement health. Really there benefits are just a step above walmarts standards. $500 a month for health ins. Ect...

    Advice to Management

    Start taking care of your employees

    Pros

    Job security. Work hours can very from within the core hours. Relaxed environment as long as you are completing work on-time. Great starting pay and bonus.

    Cons

    Increase in pay is limited. My group works well as a team; however, many teams forget that we are all working for the same company and do always contribute to the best customer service they could offer.

    Advice to Management

    I support the management team and feel that the overall missions are clearly outlined. I would like to see more team-building between different groups withing the organization.

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

    Pros

    For the most part, I think people enjoy working here. I believe there is a good work-life balance which is very important to me.

    Cons

    Unfortunately I worked for a new supervisor who seriously micro managed and did not appreciate the work done by her team. It was a very stressful atmosphere and the sad part was that it didn't have to be that way,

    Advice to Management

    Survey the employees at different times, hold your supervisors as accountable as those who are supervised. If it hadn't been for my supervisor, I would probably have stayed until retirement.
