    I have been working at SCANA part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere. A comfortable place to work. All the people are very nice and the facilities are excellent. Standard work hours

    Cons

    No sense of urgency. No way to move up. The major con is location. It's in a terrible place to live forever and raise a family, however everybody that works there seems to do so

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let things change. They have to get worse before they get better, but that's ok

    I worked at SCANA full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    An engineering focused energy company with a deep history rooted in SC politics. Good safety record with their engineers.

    Cons

    Management is not clear on their business direction and hostile to work force. Scana built natural gas pipelines all over SC to neighborhoods that don't exist and then filed rate cases with the Government to jack up the rates on energy to pay for it. They built a new headquarters building and left the downtown area in Columbia.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the 1970s management routines and modernize your workforce. Develop real business strategies that work.

    Pros

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    This is a very ethical, family oriented company that is well managed and is one of the leaders in our industry. With few exceptions, access to management and important information about the company is easily available.

    Cons

    We are sometimes a little too conservative causing decisions not always being made in a timely manner and those delays can be costly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make sure that our SACRED values are being followed all the time by everyone in all levels of management

    Pros

    Scana has great beneifts, if you contribute the max match to the 401K the company will match 6% and than they also give an additioanl 5% to another retirmenet program, for a total of 11% to the employee

    Cons

    The knowledge does not necessarily translate outside of the industry, so if you want to leave, you are stuck in the same job field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no real advice for management at this time. They do a pretty decent job at managing the company.
