    Current Employee - Supervisor in Saint Louis, MO
    Current Employee - Supervisor in Saint Louis, MO
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pay is good for the area.

    Cons

    Slow to change direction. Doesn't understand customers or changing expectations of the customer for product delivery. Ineptness at addressing relationships with regulators and governmental bodies has resulted in deterioration of profit margins and degraded financial ratings. Company's mis-handling of transition to market based rates in Illinois was a major disaster that may be downfall of whole company.

    Advice to Management

    Unload the coal, embrace environmentally sound technologies for generation of power. Hiring a pretty face (Karen Foss) for PR will not cover up the previous poor decisions that have been made nor regain the customer's trust and respect.
