    I have been working at Duquesne Light full-time

    Pros

    The pay is good and they are trying to make positive changes. Probably one of the safer bets for longer term job security. A number of new employees have recently joined the company, but I don't imagine they will stick around very long if some changes are not made.

    Cons

    Technology is dated and the company is not very progressive. Management is very top/down and not very open to collaboration. Your time is managed and can be micromanaged. Some directors, not all, are too focused on minor details and are not looking at the big picture. They promote heavily from within which is both a pro and a con. A number of people in positions due to seniority and less to do with skills and... abilities.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your directors and evaluate if they are concentrating on value-added issues. Upgrade your software and give your employees tools to do their jobs effectively. Hold people accountable and provide career training to your employees.
