    I have been working at EPCOR full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good and the local company (subsidiary or EPCOR in Canada) is small enough to have very little bureaucracy. They look to treat employees right, good benefits with a superb focus on safety!

    Cons

    The Company has entrenched management with very little room for upward movement for middle and upper management.

    Advice to Management

    When there is not enough room to promote look to allow for more lateral movement of employees so that they may keep learning and enjoying their job.

    Pros

    I had the best Leader as my boss for the first 8 years working for the company

    Cons

    I was on vacation when my next supervisor was hired, micromanaged everything, would not take any suggestions from anybody, I consider that person as a "Boss" not a LEADER.

    I worked at EPCOR full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wages are competitive and the benefits are good. The company is very involved in the community and staff are encouraged to volunteer.

    Cons

    There is a highly noticeable gap between management and staff with a real "Us vs. Them" attitude on both sides. Staff are treated poorly and almost ignored by management in many cases. Management and senior management are often under qualified to do their jobs and nepotism is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Start to consider your staff as equal and create happy teams.
