I have been working at MidAmerican Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Pay and benefits are fine. Great job security. Company takes safety seriously. Flexible schedule in IT - can put in 8 hours anytime between 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Cons

Mid-level management of the business departments (not IT) are very indecisive and do a lot of CYA. This causes decisions to be made slowly. IT middle management are generally fine to work with. I generally respect senior management but then also have limited contact with them. A few years ago they replaced vacation, sick time, family leave time with a single category of PTO. Net result is less time off. IT is still short-handed b/c of a hiring freeze after the 2008 economic crash. Training and travel budget was cut big time but is slowly coming back.

Advice to Management

Encourage your middle management to take risks and take responsibility. Be aggressive on hiring new IT workers - the short staffing is wearing people out.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits package, 401(k) match, friendly work environment, diverse employees and job opportunities, professional development highly encouraged, stable industry, excellent opportunities for college students and recent grads

    Cons

    Pay could be better, but hard to complain given above-average benefits, promotions/pay increases are hard to come by so be sure you're satisfied with starting pay.

    Advice to Management

    Fully satisfied with the leaders and upper management I've had the opportunity of working with
