    Department of Public Utilities

    Public Utilities- Wastewater (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    Pros-Excellent training ground to launch your career.
    -After completing your 6 month probationary period, you will NEVER get fired.
    -Health benefits are good

    Cons- Work culture is horrendous.
    -The upper management is absolutely terrible. Managers are out for themselves. They steal lower level employees work and present it as their own.
    -There is often talk about change, but no action
    -Stereotypical government: a significant amount of time is required to get tasks accomplished; tons of red tape; impossible to get awful employees reallocated, transferred or fired.
    - Pay scale is not comparable to other employers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBegin by getting rid of toxic employees. Complaints have been filed- management actually has to take action that is in the best interest of the team's welfare.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Still in 1991

    Senior Accountant (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsThe benefits are good
    Good work life balance

    ConsWhat ever position you accept, plan on staying there even if you are a top performer.
    Good ole boy/girl system

    Advice to Senior ManagementAccept change, accept advice from younger generations, they know more about computers than you do. Promote the best, not your friends.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent learning environment

    Assistant (Former Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsSupportive collaborative team, fun to have a group of individuals working towards one goal. Achieving the final out come together is very satidfying.

    ConsThe management style is not one to be desired. There is a lot of back stabbing and cliques in upper management. The culture of this office is very discouraging. Definitely have to be a self motivator and not expect any recognition for hard work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTransparency. Practice what is preeched.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Accounts Receivable reconciliation and new software implementation

    A/R Representative/Collections (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsGreat work environment, great boss. Open communication with upper management. Ability to come up with ideas and have those ideas implemented.

    ConsPossible lack of upward mobility. Raises are not given based on performance. Performance reviews are non existient. Lack of inter departmental communication. People who seem to coast are not punished and those who take extra tasks are not rewarded.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to keep the best talent then compensation should be tied directly to performance. If one persons job duties are changed and they take on extra responsibilities they should be compensated accordingly.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Not what it's cracked up to be

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsPaid time off and pretty flexible with family/home life/ the pay wasnt bad to start but has been disappointing since

    ConsAbolutely no room for advancement. The management is something to be desired. They have no incentives, they keep doing away with jobs, only not to replace them instead the people left there pick up the slack for no more pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLive in the real word and treat others with respect and expect that humans can only perform as well as they can before they burn out

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
