    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Sierra Southwest Cooperative full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many jobs have relativley good pay for the area 4 day work week option Supports the local community and supplies needed rural electric service Non profit cooperative does not focus solely on the corporate bottom line

    Cons

    Very high health insurance deductible. Easy to get fired for pissing off the wrong person even if you are a competent worker. Some managers exhibit an unspoken favoritism for local Mormon employees. The bonus program has such low payouts that there is virtually no incentive to accomplish the goals.

    Advice to Management

    Do not cut technical staff to the point that the remaining staff gets burned out and leaves resulting a total loss of experienced employees.


  2. Arbitrary Firing

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Sierra Southwest Cooperative full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company itself should do well in it's industry.

    Cons

    Does not develop employees properly, and instead of addressing this problem, they easily terminate people.


  3. Good salary and benefits but very low job satisfaction.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are all I can name.

    Cons

    Too much middle management considering size of company. Too many people promoted to positions they're not qualified for. Lots of wasteful spending especially in the administrative depts. (acct, HR, marketing...) Losing a lot of long time experienced employees, especially in upper management. People not held accountable in their job positions so a lot of mistakes get looked over.

    Advice to Management

    Need to eliminate much middle management and make people accountable for their responsiblities in their positions. Get rid of people that don't perform.
