Pros

Colorado Springs Utilities has good people and okay benefits. There is a great job security at CSU and the people that work there understand that aspect. They have a good work/life balance since there is no high stress areas. You can work as much or as little (40 hours)...it is how much work you want to create for yourself.

Cons

At Colorado Springs Utilities, there is no accountability. You can screw up and it will be brushed under the rug. All decisions are based upon how it would be perceived if the local newspaper were to spin it. No business decisions, all political decisions. This is due to the city council running Utilities. If you are a driven individual and want to move up in the organization on business principals, not the company for you.

Advice to Management

Managers need to lead and have a common vision they are working towards. They need to communicate that vision to the workers so they understand how the decisions they make on a daily basis fit the vision. Management (it is not leadership at Colorado Springs) needs to ask the hard questions to there employees and not be in touch with there employees.
