Disapproves of CEO

Pros

You work with nice people, but career progression is difficult and the management team is extremrly incompetent and incapable.

Cons

Salary is poort, job is bad and dissatisfying. You will work on projects that have no impact. Cronyism is a big problem...Raises are 2% and this year, our pay was cut so alot of people have been leaving the company. In short, you will kill your career...

Advice to Management

Do a good job. take feedback. Reward performance. Promote those that deserve it , not those that have been in the company for a billion years. The ship is sinking..

    Pros

    Best salaries in the NE Ohio area; some very good people to work with; my superintendent is one of the best people-persons I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    Corporate management just doesn't get it... you can't run a plant for 25 years without spending money replacing broken equipment... duct tape and band-aides will only get you so far. They think INPO is too stupid to figure out that they won't spend the money to fix issues INPO recommends working on until a month before INPO comes back. Gee... do you think they will notice? INPO 4 two evaluations running... can we set another record and make it 3 in a row?

    Advice to Management

    Quit acting like you are responding and change the corporate mindset of cheap, cheap, cheap! People are quiting this company because they are tired of being ignored when they do what you say you want... identiying issues that need to be fixed. Instead of fixing the problems, you talk about it in a meeting, then approve the funding... only to pull the monies before the project gets scheduled to save money. Who do you think you are fooling? If the stockholders are that stupid... let them invest somewhere else. There are utility companies all over the country in better shape financially, and spending plenty of money on upgrades and employee salaries... what exactly are you benchmarking? Corporate parachutes?

    Pros

    A lot of training opportunties.

    Cons

    Never had time for training. No work/life balance. Turnover rate was in the high double digits and management kept blaming the people leaving! No autonomy to make your own decisons about what would be strategic or good for the business, majority of decisions were based on political outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    Consider why turnover is so high? How can you fix it and keep high performers?
