    I worked at E.ON full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good. A lot of work to keep busy. A lot of really good people working there.

    Cons

    Upper management is so worried about keeping their own jobs that they forget that they only look good because of the people working for them. There are several admins, but not in the right positions. The sites are extremely overstaffed without the back office support that is needed. Everyone wears so many hats that no one knows who is in charge of what. You really feel like a number there instead of an employee or family. EON tries to act like "big business" like a GE, but they are not even close to being big enough or have things in place like a GE.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about your own job and take care of the people that work for you. You also cant change benefits because you feel like it saves $1 and expect the employees to be happy and work their hardest for you.

    I have been working at E.ON (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and salary. Generous holiday schedule. Hours are good since senior management works 10 AM to 5 PM. It's a great company if you like bureaucracy and incompetence.

    Cons

    For a company that develops renewable projects, the pipeline is non existent. E.ON can only build in Texas. Solar development is a joke with nothing built in the last 3 years. US managers are more concerned about looking good to their bosses in Germany than attending to issues. It is a kiss up/kick down culture where managers are very abusive of employees but are upper management's sycophants.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to hire a decent search firm to replace the US leadership with executives who have delivered results elsewhere. Prospective candidates should ask hard questions about the viability of the wind and solar pipeline, the management style of management, and should reach out to current and former employees for insight. E.ON likes to make relocation expenses a form of indentured servitude so be careful.

    I have been working at E.ON full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Intelligent people, strong benefits, they pay somewhat competitively to what market pays. Projects are challenging, yet good. Nothing other than that.

    Cons

    Everything outside of pay and benefits. Like I said, senior management is filled with a bunch of idiots. HR can't figure out things for the life of them.. lack of resources- I'm pretty sure everything I do is manual. What a joke! Minimal work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Get your sh** figured out.

    Pros

    Great place to work, excellent company. I always look forward to going to work in the mornings.

    Cons

    I am the sole developer so it gets lonely and boring sometimes, and I feel like I am missing out on the chance to learn from others.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. This is a great company with great people working there, the future is bright for this company.
