    I worked at Dynegy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, union benefits, great insurance, some great people to work with.

    Cons

    Schedule can be a little hard on family life, people should be held accountable, plants closing, union that we paid dues to didn't help the ones getting laid off, some were told severing would still allow you to work at another plant just bought by the company and turned out not to be true. Can't trust any management person.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the real meaning of accountability and take some action. Don't just talk about safety, get the boots dirty and go see what's unsafe instead of changing things without knowing.

    I worked at Dynegy full-time

    Pros

    Gained a solid background in the generation side of the power grid and held responsibilities a normal plant engineer would have.

    Cons

    If pursuing a career, expect to move from plant to plant

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Dynegy full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Employees are given the freedom to contribute to the success of the company in many different ways, both inside and outside their job classification.

    Cons

    It is a very tough time in the power generation industry. EPA regulations and poor market design have threatened grid stability by causing coal fired power generators to close when the plants are still viable resources.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce debt load and keep trying to keep the power plants running. Go after some contracts that allow for a stable revenue stream that does not fluctuate with the daily power market prices.
