    Pros

    Great benefits, good work life balance, new CEO who appears to be a thinker and not afraid to challenge the status quo. Hopefully, there will be changes in the future.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities, not a lot of alpha employees, perceived inequalities for some employees, inexperienced managers. A lot of managers do not have other work experience; therefore, they are not willing to move away from inefficient processes and take risks.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a consultant to assist with conducting 360 management reviews.

    Small group, easy to work with. In addition, there is a lot of freedom. Finally, the learning curve is easy to overcome.

    Not very challenging in the work that is given. Also, some of the leaders are very narrow minded and not willing to grow in their ways.

    Pros

    The Compensation was great, the people were incredibly friendly and you had a steady workflow. It was a very laid-back environment that allowed for a great degree of self expression. They even encouraged continuing education

    Cons

    Incredibly mundane work. There was never variety, but that is also what comes along with the Power industry. There is also little room for rapid advancement.
