    Mirant allows people to explore and advance their skills. Low employee turnover with outstanding people. Competitive pay and benefits.

    Micromanagement can be an issue.

    Lighten up on the micromanagement, and allow your resources to do their job. If they aren't capable, replace them.

    Pros

    Opportunities to learn if you were proactive. A great environment to work in - laid back with an open door policy. Not a lot of employee turnover.

    Cons

    Not enough information flow from senior management. It may have varied by department, but no flexibility for 9/80 work weeks or telecommuting.
