    I have been working at Cleco full-time

    Pros

    Great company in a small town environment.

    Cons

    Hard to move up as most people have been here forever and hard to move around the seniority pipeline.

    Advice to Management

    Need to look at ability and truly evaluate competencies rather than use the good old boy network technique for performance and promotions

    Pros

    The Executive team seems to genuinely care, my direct management cares a lot as well. Great pay.

    Cons

    Some of the people at the coworker level make the plant feel like a good old boy mentality. Living in the are matters more than who you are as a person to them.

    Advice to Management

    Let the old timers know it is ok to change. You guys are doing a good job otherwise.

    I have been working at Cleco full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The salaries are very competitive and somewhat high for the area, the offices were recently updated so it’s a clean, safe work environment.

    Cons

    IT personnel do not have the staff or resources to do their jobs efficiently or effectively. No privacy in cubicle environment. Incompetent management at all levels. Inconsistent treatment of department staff.

    Advice to Management

    Train management upon promoting them unless you want endless lawsuits.
