    I have been working at Black Hills Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    In my position I am trusted to be an expert at what I do. I have a lot of flexibility in my job because my manager trusts my decisions. Company has great benefits compared to other employers in my community. Leadership is open to new ideas and values input from employees.

    Cons

    Heavy workload. Company runs lean to avoid lay-offs, but it can put a heavy burden on employees

    Advice to Management

    Embrace a culture of trust. Share your vision for the future and let them help you get there.

    Pros

    I believe there are lots of positives. Some of the highlights are great benefits, strong 401K match and company contribution, generous vacation, good salary level, and training. The company is very diversified which helps keep it stable through these tough times.

    Cons

    We all work hard here and cost cutting is always a priority...but I'd rather we be careful and frugal so we don't have layoffs or other negative surprises.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up...you're on the right track. It would be nice to see and talk with you in person more often.

    Pros

    Really like the work environment, flexible schedules, and management.

    As any job goes, most people feel "overworked", but I think staying busy is a good thing.
