    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at EVN full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you can play "stupid" you are on the right track. "Stupid" employees are more valued than others and very often are rewarded with bonuses and salaries. So being "stupid" in this company counts a lot! If you can do this a impending retirement in this company is guarantied.

    Cons

    Loyal employees are often treated poorly because they are loyal and employers think they will not leave. Especially in the IT department! Middle management sucks the life of employees and is an absolute morale killer. They only care about filling their pockets with money and don't care at all about the employees. Salaries are poor in relation to other companies in the country. It all looks nice on the outside. But... the content inside is rotten.

    Advice to Management

    The truth is, it all comes down to how you treat people. You can't buy loyalty. It must be earned! "Your Employees can be your greatest asset– It all depends on how you treat them!" - by Wise Man

    I worked at EVN full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    EVN Macedonia is like a bad apple, beautiful from the outside rotten from the inside. It’s ok to work for this company until you bite the apple.

    Cons

    The IT senior and middle management achieving goals are usually far from their capabilities with no real practical capacity and taking places of true professionals in company structures. HR senior management and most of the employees in that department is complete pile of rubbish that it’s rotting the whole company structures and working environment.

    Advice to Management

    There is a need of complete restructuring in all departments, with a bigger focus on HR. Also incompetent employees that are under management cover need to be dealt with. When you clean this rubbish under the carpet maybe then your employees and customers will have positive opinion about your company.

    I have been working at EVN full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Stable company for lazy and incompetent people that don't have ambitions and are waiting only for a retirement.

    Cons

    Salaries are not equal for the same working position and also lower than average for the same IT positions in the county. Bad business culture, incompetent colleagues and management without any knowledge for managing. If you're are a hard worker they will only exploit you without any reward or opportunity for grow. The working atmosphere is very negative. The mindset of the HR department is very very wrong, they... think that are higher in position than everybody without any good vision for future employees, grow for them and the company.

    Advice to Management

    You need to change the IT and HR management, they are the big problem. Especially the HR department because of them finding quality professionals that will stay longer than couple of months is not possible.
