  5. Great pay but not worth it. Put in long hours just to get laid off while the CEO makes millions.

    I worked at USEC

    Pros

    Pay. That's about the only pro I can think of after 7 years with this company.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs and not enough indians. No room for advancement unless you are a suck up. Rotating shift. Greedy CEO. Lots of drama all of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Most management didn't even deserve to be in management. They just sucked up to the right people. Management was very catty and talked about employees behind their backs. Always causing friction. It would be great if you would cut all of that crap out. If you want your employees to respect you, respect them first.

    Pros

    It has been a good job for many years

    Cons

    They are closing their only running enrichment plant in Paducah, and have filed for bankruptcy.

    Advice to Management

    Don't close your only running enrichment plant and waste money on the test plant in piketon.

    Pros

    Pay is good, good benefits, they don't care when or if you come to work.

    Cons

    There is no encouragement for continued education. They have no set policy on showing up for work - what time or anything. They do not ackowledge you for a job well done. The only way to get ahead is to suck up to upper management. Upper management is not well educated, many of the employees have more education than the management team. They have no sellable product, their only source of income is DOE even tho it is supposed to be "private".

    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers and management. Safety is always first priority. Everyone is free to espress their ideas and concerns without fear of criticism.

    Cons

    Pay is less than competetive. Outgoing employees are not replaced, leaving more work for those who remain.


  11. A good company to learn about the nuclear fuel cycle and energy industry in general, but has a very uncertain future.

    Pros

    Talented, smart people. Decent salary, 401K and benefits. Great individual offices. Good gym and underground parking. Early release on days prior to major holiday long weekends.

    Cons

    A company struggling to carve out a viable future in the uranium enrichment sector. No workplace flexibility or telecommuting. Competes globally, but not especially global in terms of geographic presence or culture.

    Advice to Management

    Get savvier on the DC lobbying front because the company is facing an uphill battle against the competition.
