      Dynegy has fostered a great culture, each member of the company feels valued, regardless of their level, position, or title.


      Only cons is the general issues facing IPPs. There tend to be questions about the longer term stability and growth of IPPs.

        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.


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

          I worked as a power plant operator, which means rotating 12hr shifts, therefore I was somewhat isolated from the management structures in place. Also our plant is one of only two in California making us further isolated from the home offices in Texas. If I ignore the pessimism from my coworkers, I can objectively say that Dynegy was a decent employer. Benefits and compensation were around industry standard, besides where else can you make 150k in an entry level no degree position? Although our plant was obviously not a priority for Dynegy, I did not feel like we were neglected. I also personally met the CEO Bob Flexon and had a great impression of him and his dedication to safety throughout the fleet.


          There definitely was a problem with the management and culture at my facility. Corporate tried and failed to fix it. This was most likely ingrained from 30 years prior to Dynegy's involvement but it is surprising that they could not simply replace under preforming management which were the root of the culture issue.

            Dynegy acquired our power plant in 2007. Overall it has been a reasonable company to work for. The benefits and salary package that was negotiated by our union was good and for the most part I believe that the majority of people were happy with it. The company allowed a significant amount of time off for one of the employees for the birth of her daughter and several weeks of post natal care, this was in part due to California law, but the company gets credit where it is due for allowing her to use vacation and sick time to make up for shortcomings in pay.


            The company as a whole is failing miserably but has amazingly stayed afloat this long. The company jumped on the debt bandwagon like every other nitwit in this country from the home flippers to the too big to fail banks. The lack of fundamental economic understanding and foresight is excusable for the GED crowd, but if your in an executive position you'd better be damn sure you're too big to fail before you take on a debt to asset ratio that big. Dynegy was not too big to fail. Recently the company has given the union and represented employees a big middle finger during contract negotiations. This is due to the fact that the company is going to be acquired and split up by Blackstone Group and NRG and therefor had no incentive to negotiate until after the deal passed. This didn't stop them from wasting many hours of the union reps time. Any shareholder with a significant amount of money in Dynegy has basically lost their ass.

          Case Manager

          I applied to 4 jobs last week. Two companies replied that thy are reviewing my application and I have an interview tomorrow with a third. The company I'm interviewing with is the one I'm least interested in of the four, though it is better than my current job. What is the etiquette if I'm offered a job with this company but I want to wait and see what response I get from the other 3? Should I tell the company I need a couple weeks to decide, or be up front that I'm waiting for other offers? Or?



          During my interview with a Vice President, he mentioned that the "background check" had been reviewed. He brought up cities I had lived in at one point, even though I hadn't included that information on my resume or LinkedIn profile, though it is accurate. Additionally, he was aware of my entrepreneurship experience, which I had not disclosed anywhere. I'm curious about the source of this information. I'm currently progressing through the interview rounds without any offer or signed documents.
