    Top employer for a small rural town

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Benson, AZ

    ProsMany 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

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Arbitrary Firing

    Accounting (Former Employee) Benson, AZ

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good salary and benefits but very low job satisfaction.

    Accounting (Former Employee) Benson, AZ

    ProsSalary and benefits are all I can name.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
