    I worked at Energy Northwest full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, relatively easy work, very few "backbreaking" jobs, and very safe.

    Cons

    There is an overall atmosphere of "Even the slightest mistake will ruin your career" so everyone is walking on eggshells at all times so there is this weird stress shared by all employees.

    Advice to Management

    The stressful atmosphere has been bread from the nuclear power values set years ago and the industry can't afford to not be constantly on its toes so it really can't be helped. Keep doing what you're doing; even though it might not be the most fun place to work but, the safety is far more important.
