    NV Energy is a fast-follower when it comes to implementing new technologies. They are doing some very interesting things in the energy industry and have some very dedicated employees.

    Cons

    *) Limited opportunities to move up into management. *) Senior management does not interact well with employees (stand-offish) *) Too much office politics

    I worked at NV Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Growing again; opportunities to venture into new fields; Nevada is a good place to live and has reasonable cost of living.

    Cons

    Low pay; managed by Iowa owners; benefits are being cut significantly; bonuses are not very good; lots of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Company was acquired in 2013 and its new owners do not value the individuals that work there. Its relationship with regulators is challenging and often acrimonious. Leadership has accelerated salary compression since the regulatory process has been challenging.

    I worked at NV Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    NV Energy is one of the largest employers in Las Vegas and in theory there should be plenty of opportunity...and there is, if you can tolerate continual change and dysfunction. The pay and benefits are very good - because they need something to attract talent - it sure isn't the culture.

    Cons

    This is one of the most operationally dysfunctional companies I have ever been associated with. The amount of money that is spent - wasted - on projects is staggering, compared to other companies doing the same thing. Nothing gets done until everyone agrees - there is no accountability, only groupthink. The Finance area is in a continual revolving door with its employees, who are burned out because they are so understaffed. For many of the people there, NV Energy is the only company they have ever worked for - and it shows. They don't know what it can be like when people actually work together, cooperatively. I am so glad to be gone from there.

    Advice to Management

    Put some time into the plight of the employees. Come out of your glass tower and see what is actually going on in the lower ranks.

    Good old boy fraternity mentality, unless you are black you will not get any advancement, yet you have to carry the load on your shoulder. Your ideas (no Matter how productive) will not be supported. This is how we do it philosophy.
