    Pros

    The stability of the company is reassuring. There are plenty of employees who have stood the test of time so it's possible to have a long career here.

    Cons

    Management encouraged teammates to compete with one another. As a result resources and contacts weren't freely shared which was a threat to safety and exacerbated inefficiency.

    Pros

    1. Communicating across all levels of employees 2. Customer focus is top notch 3. Customer restoration mobilization & restoration efforts is un-matched

    Cons

    1. Hold people accountable - Isn't this what Total Rewards is all about?!?! 2. Promote/Hire the BEST candidate - Technical skills don't always outweigh People skills, etc. 3. Watch out for employees who do a GREAT job of "managing up" but are not well received/do not collaborate well with others...

    Pros

    You'll find many coworkers love the company and there is a lot to love! Stock matching, full tuition reimbursement, high employee morale, and more. The company also places a high importance on diversity and inclusion, so no one will ever feel out of place. Family and safety are the most important for the company, and this makes it feel like everyone is a family.

    Cons

    You might not be at the cutting edge of IT technologies, since the company doesn't typically involve themselves in them.
