    I worked at Southwest Power Pool full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Excellent benefits and commitment to maintaining them.
    - Solid pay scale; kept current with the market.
    - Industry provides a valuable service; very rewarding, unlike other industries.
    - Great facilities; nice working environment.
    - The majority of the staff are fun, engaging people.
    - Emphasis on giving back to the community without "browbeating" you into involvement.

    Cons

    - Some parts of the company are slow to recognize high-achievers and reward them.
    - In some departments you must "play to game" in order to advance.
    - The emphasis on the "culture" is somewhat overbearing and hard to define.

    Advice to Management

    There is a tendency to use the "evolutionary versus revolutionary" maxim to avoid making decisions in a timely fashion. Progress, at times, moves very slow. The "culture" can occasionally be used in the absence of sound business practice. That feedback is meant to be constructive.

    From a positive standpoint, keep providing great service to your customers and employees. My time there was overwhelmingly positive, but was not without it's challenges for me personally.
