    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Atlantic Power full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits, but only because they were grandfathered in.

    Cons

"Cutting corners" means terminating employees, not decreasing budgets. Project planning is a rarity so you're constantly working under pressure to meet a deadline. Middle management is like walking into a revolving door. Walking in when they promote you...

    Advice to Management

    Power generation from the plants is what makes money for the company. The employees operate and support the plants. Upper management makes the decisions. When you terminate entire departments that provide plant support, the plants will suffer. Where's the cost-savings in that? You've made your bed, now sleep in it.
