Pros

Good benefits, nice friendly people (most of the time), really good job security, forgiving when mistakes are made.

Cons

Pay is fair for the cost of living in Honolulu, don't really do much engineering its more of a project manager position, no overtime pay, but you end up working 40 - 60 hours a week.

    I have been working at Hawaiian Electric Company full-time

    Pros

    Great coworkers and a very nice environment. They are all about safety.

    Cons

    The company is very old. They have a very traditional culture that is very hard to change. One of them is being slow. Whether it is emails or technology.

    Advice to Management

    Should not shrug off young, bright, and talented employees. Always trying to find solutions, but doesn't realize that there is great talent under management.
