    I worked at Wisconsin Public Service full-time

    Pros

    Good Benefits and Pay, nice people, nice equipment, good hours.

    Cons

    Inconsistent accountability, managers wont stick up for you, very political, some departments are very clicky, people from Green Bay headquarters tend to be arrogant, union doesn't stick up for you and tends to get in the way of advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hourly employees don't trust their managers. It also doesn't make sense to discipline the hard workers who try and go lightly on the people who don't work hard.

    I have been working at Wisconsin Public Service full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company offers good benefits, insurance and compensation. There are many different careers available ranging from outside work on electric and natural gas facilities.

    Cons

    Depending on the work, the hours can be extremely long and travel required at times. This can be especially challenging for younger families when striving for a work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career advancement opportunities are unclear to employees which contributes to overall dissatisfaction with an employees career and job searching elsewhere leading to good employees leaving the company.

    Pros

    The pay is much higher than most other jobs in the area. Especially when it comes to starting pay. Benefits like health coverage are good especially if you are only claiming yourself. Most of the people there have been there for most of their careers. Employees and the company are very community focused.

    Cons

    Promotions are usually based on seniority more than qualifications for some positions. Because of the nature of some of the positions in the company, you may have to work long hours or during the middle of the night. Some of the equipment and trucks are older and should be replaced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people recognition on a regular basis for what the do so they know that they are being noticed.
