Pros

This is the only Electrical Utility in the State of Idaho.
The Company pays decent salary and provide pretty good benefits package, including pension plan.
Family-like atmosphere.
This is NOT a Union shop, so no class warfair between Administration/Management and lower level employees.
It is possible to get a promotion if you really want it.
Very competitive - everybody is proud to be a member of a team, so for the most part everything is done fast.
The Company provides GREAT training.

Cons

Hardly any, but the benefits could be a bit more competitive as compared to the leaders of the Industry, that have Union run operation (though IMO - unions promote mediocrity, class warfair and stagnation)

Advice to Management

Good job!

    Pros

    Compensation is above average
    Pension plan
    Subsidized downtown parking

    Cons

    Bullying is allowed
    Power is obtained by owning and not sharing information
    Training opportunities are only allowed for department pets
    Time off for care of family is "allowed" but then held against you as not being committed to company
    Managers do not know how to lead
    Inconsistent feedback
    You are not given tools to do your job successfully
    Managers rely on "spies" (this told to me directly from my supervisor) to get feedback on your daily activities and perfomance
    Leaders have inappropriate relationships with subordinates (taking vacations together,etc)
    Completing projects on time is more important than completing projects successfully

    Advice to Management

    Look at the obvious...high turnover in a department (8 out of 13 in 3 years) means that something is wrong with the leadership. Have realistic expectations of your employees and put your money where your mouth is when you say "Family is First".
