    I worked at SRP full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    SRP is a very old, very stable company that offers comprehensive benefits and ready access to any number of career development opportunities. This is the kind of company where career employees with 30-40 years of experience are not the exception, they are the norm - that speaks volumes about the company itself.

    Cons

    Certainly, as with any company, you might get a less-than-inspiring supervisor or manager. But the great thing about SRP is that movement within the company, even between the Power and Water sides of the company is not only not frowned upon, it's considered a healthy thing. So it is the rare employee who feels locked into their particular job. If you wish to move around, you will have that opportunity. That said, many who don't suffer a dolt for a boss wind up spending decades in the same role, satisfied. The work/life balance is good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I happen to know the kind of man Mark Bonsall is and can say without reservation, he only wants to see SRP and its employees succeed. He's actively engaged in a constant process of evaluating the company's strengths and weaknesses, just as he did with impressive results in customer service when he headed that organization, and this can only bode well for the company. I expect the future will be stable for SRP, regardless of national or local economic factors.

    Pros

    Mostly friendly work environment. Great benefits, including education. You can to get your degree, partially paid for by the company. There are also opportunities for advancement for those that are motivated.

    Cons

    Although being conservative has contributed to consistent earnings and minimal losses during economic downturns, I believe the company has missed opportunities by being slow to adopt new technological advances. They have been content with following instead of leading the way.

    I have been working at SRP full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The benefits, specifically health insurance, are amazing and they still offer a pension plan. The company is extremely involved in the community which makes me proud to say I work there. Most departments are family friendly

    Cons

    It is impossible to change anything because everyone is so set in their ways. As a new employee, your drive and creativity can quickly be crushed. In addition, they won't fire anyone....which means there is a ton of dead weight and those with good work ethic are tasked with picking up the slack. In some organizations, promotion is based on who you know and not what you know.

    I have been working at SRP as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Interesting technology and engineering environment
    Friendly place, lots of staff engagement
    very flexible work hours
    laid-back work environment
    good pay
    drive / support for self-improvement
    hard to be dismissed

    Cons

    bureaucratic
    underlying good-old-boy network politics
    hard for anyone to be dismissed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lay off once in a while - even if the profitability will support carrying dead wood, morale among the motivated suffers as less qualified sycophants succeed with political skill and capable \ effective staff is ignored for lack of perceived social grace (political skill).
    Restructure IT significantly. There are wildly too many silos; effect is that any team trying to accomplish anything crosses several - each thinking that it's the dog and the others are the tail. Each believes it defines process, artifacts (what is useful to produce), deadlines, etc. Tower of Babel.

    A lot of training, works with you're schedule and tuition reimbursement is definitely not a bad deal.

    Cons

    Not a lot of jobs openings after graduating and sometimes can be very political

    I worked at SRP full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people were great, good benefits, and they are good to their employees. I really enjoyed the time I spent with SRP and would welcome a permanant position with them.

    Cons

    It only thing I didn't enjoy was the town the plant was near (St. Johns, AZ). There isn't too much to do up there if you are a city slicker like me.
