    Pros

    Management tries to help everyone but corporate won't support them and punishes them. Lots of sick time but don't want you to use it.

    Cons

    Poor pay- corporate promises everything yet does nothing but make excuses. They are a very bad company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the plant to be run the way it should be instead of running it into the ground.

    Pros

    After many year's of struggles, the current management team has shown a consistency for achieving growth and stability. Dynegy has always had a strong, positive culture, even during bad times. The culture has been made even stronger over recent years.

    Cons

    Some within Dynegy had a view that was too short-term in terms of performance.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the open, honest communications. Don't allow internal politics to weaken the culture.

    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.

    Keep up the good work!
