I have been working at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

-Amazing and friendly people work here. The experience you get as an intern is great since you are exposed to all sectors of the company (Nuclear, Finance, Accounting, Environmental, Legal etc.). You get to work as a team and have total visibility of how your work contributes to the company.

Cons

-Responsibilities tend to be monotonous.
-Can be slow at times
-Definitely a ceiling on what you can learn but that is with many big companys as you just specialize in your department.

Advice to Management

-Management needs to listen more to their employees and really take a look at what is needed in the organization. Majority of the company is made up of interns and some departments are getting less support financially as opposed to others making it overwhelming at times.

    I worked at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This company was founded to provide research and direction to USA utilities. They have been on the forefront of project management in research and development of power delivery in the USA. They are well respected within the utility industry and is a great place to work for engineers and scientists who want to be valued for their input and provide valuable input and discovery into the utility industry of the USA and the world.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care for non-engineer staff. If you are not a member of the engineering staff, you are not valuable. Seems to be a constant struggle for upper management and budget dollars.

    Advice to Management

    Listen when administrative staff informs you of issues. You have lost many good employees by listening to the wrong people who had motives other than what was best for the company.
