Pros

The benefits were good and fairly comparable for the DC area. And tuition reimbursement is always a good thing, IMO.

Cons

Downsizing is always looming. I got to witness several employees with 20+ years get canned. If the company wasnt loyal to them, why be loyal to the company?

Advice to Management

If you want to retain good people, stop scaring them off with your actions. Watching executives get escorted out is not good for morale. Don't be so resistant to change.

    Pros

    The benefits are great. The people I work with and the members are great. Training that is offered to staff is good.

    Cons

    The Prima donnas that work here. The can't get off there duff to xerox something or call a cab. Rediculous! Management is slow to get rid of low-performing employees which is frustrating. There seems to be favoritism in how certain people are promoted and treated.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that have management training or get them professional training.

    Pros

    Amazing opportunities to partner with other professionals throughout the Association, working together to make a difference for the member-owners of electric cooperatives nationwide. Innovation and creativity are not only supported, but encouraged. The NRECA work ethic is almost legendary. Interdepartmental projects with work teams are frequently formed with great results.

    Cons

    The workload can be heavy yet good managers are aware and do what they can to minimize the load. Business casual is only on Fridays and in the summer (Memorial Day through Labor Day). Some of the less engaged employees are somehow allowed to remain.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and do not intimidate them when they suggest that some deadlines may be unrealistic. Treat your employees as the true resources that they are.
