    I have been working at Oncor Electric Delivery full-time

    Pros

    Depending on where you work, the experience changes. Dallas, West Texas seem to be best locations. Smaller service centers not so much.

    Cons

    Rotating management. System changes. Storm-work (24/7, on call, etc.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure supervisors get the training they need and have the experience managing people before moving or promoting them. If they do a poor job remove them from that position as you would a regular employee.

    I have been working at Oncor Electric Delivery full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Safety. The company makes safety it's first priority. The benefits are above average versus most other industries. Upper Management, for the size of the company, is approachable. Co-workers and management seem to understand work-life balance.

    Cons

    Position dependent - long hours possible based on weather events, emergencies, and/or special projects. Company culture has to be learned and is varied across the company's service area. Mergers, over 100 years, has brought many companies into Oncor. Some of the mindset still remains from these previous companies and aren't completed unified as one. The company structure makes it a little more difficult to "move up the ladder".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving in the direction that the company's course seems directed.

    Pros

    The people who work at Oncor are wonderful. There aren't too many bad apples and they do a good job of nurturing a positive culture. They really believe in a work-life balance, and will support you 100% if you ever have any medical emergencies.

    Cons

    They're still a corporate company with lots of hoops to jump through. It takes a long time to get anything accomplished.
