      I worked at Atlantic Power

      Pros

      CEO seems to be heading the company in the right direction. Working to turnaround the company in a tough energy industry environoment.

      Cons

      Company is very top driven. They could benefit by being in tune with and listening to input at that business unit level.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Atlantic Power full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Company generally has excellent people at the plant operations level. Currently, Atlantic is cash strapped

      Cons

      Currently, Atlantic is cash strapped Due to missteps by previous management.

      Advice to Management

      Avoid the mistakes of your predecessors and focus on the long term, not the quarterly analysts calls.

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Atlantic Power for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Great health benefits for employees, and management seems to have the desire to want to teach employees about new skills.

      Cons

      There were quarterly calls with the company, but otherwise not a lot of communication to employees aside of the corporate newsletter.

      Advice to Management

      Company needs more team building and bonding activities to unite the corporate office, which is very departmentalized. Keep lines open with employees on making improvements.

      I have been working at Atlantic Power

      Pros

      Generous vacation time, Atlantic 101 training for employee development, and breakfast on Fridays. The change in leadership that has happened is a positive for this company.

      Cons

      You do not get many holidays off, business/formal atmosphere, not as much teamwork and collaboration as I have seen at other companies.
