    Too much company politics. They select who they want in management. Even if you are qualified they still pick others.

    I worked at NV Energy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The outside looks good. But in office horrible people.

    Cons

    Good on training. Information not shared across the board. reps are last to know. Customer knows first information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should clean house in human resources. Gossips and not appropriate with personnel.

  6.  

    One of the best places to work at. Coworkers treat you great, you get respect and learn a lot about the corporation.

    I worked at NV Energy as an intern for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great salary or hourly pay, good benefits, opportunities within the company are also great.

    Cons

    Sometimes people get carried away with distractions and end up wasting time. Nobody really says anything because it is not a micromanaged environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set more realistic deadlines and help their employees grow by giving them opportunities to work on new projects.

    I worked at NV Energy full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are still good, compared to other employers in the area.

    Cons

    I worked for Sierra Pacific Power Company for more than 20 years and was let go after the merger with Nevada Power, even though I was an excellent, loyal employee with outstanding performance reviews. From what I hear from current employees of "NV Energy" in Reno things have only gotten worse. Morale is low, everyone fears for their job and everything is controlled by Las Vegas. Reno is like a district office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm disgusted at the golden parachutes received by Walt Higgins and other execs. Treat your employees with respect and dignity. Value loyalty and years of dedicated service. And get rid of the Vegas mentality.

    I worked at NV Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Not much. Benefits and pay were decent but at a cost. Advancement is possible if you're a man.

    Cons

    Potential to move up into apprenticeships only if you know someone. Good luck if you're female. The department I worked in is close to bare bones, and hired temps rather than paying us more to work endless overtime. Mandatory Saturdays were the norm. The company is hated by anyone and everyone in the community. Since we were the first in the line of service, we got most of the complaints. The company is a monopoly and they know consumers have no choice so customer service practices are nonexistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We all know you're miserable too and are at risk of losing your jobs as well. No need to take your frustrations out on us. I hope Uncle Warren Buffet can change this company around for you.
