Abilities to network with coworkers, opportunity to learn new techniques and processes from different utilities through travel, personally I like the travel and long outage hours (if I didn't, I'd go house)
No benefits to speak of. The health insurance has always been laughable and when it cuts to cobra in the off season its prohibitively expensive. No 401k to speak of, $200/annual match is a damn insult. Zero room for advancement as any/all of the few lead/supervisor/alarm positions are always filled with retired house techs or through nepotism and not based on ability or merit. Recruiters primary job seems to be to lie to the technicians in the rare event that they actually answer a phone call or email. Site coordinators. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a tech that knows, for sure, what a coordinators job actually is. Most of them don't seem to do much beyond payroll and using their position to do things that are ethically questionable. Our pay, while okay, is far below where it should be. When plants like Diablo can pay techs 2x what BHI is paying us and still save money over going through thus company its clear that our top heavy "management" structure is way too dependant on the money we're working for.
