    I have been working at Tri-State Generation and Transmission full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many opportunities to travel to other Tri-State facilities. They dont "skimp" on the fringe benefits; catered meals, ergonomics, technology, etc.

    Cons

    Many decisions are made to be politically correct instead of what's best for the company/members. Seems that there is a "good ole' boy" attitude and that sometimes hinders forward movement. The culture sometimes feels like Tri-State COMPETES with neighboring entities instead of working with them to ensure reliability of the Bulk Electric System.

    Advice to Management

    Don't shoot down ideas until you fully understand the proposed idea.
