    I have been working at TVA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at several utilities. TVA is the best thus far. I enjoy working for a company with a mission of service. The pay is good, the hours are fair, the people are top-shelf in most areas.

    Cons

    It's a utility. Corporate culture has an old-school, top-down feel to it. There is a disconnect between the first line employees and the management.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more flexible work arrangements. Don't allow the different sections of the business to treat the workers differently. Streamline the HR processes. Get rid of some deadwood!
