    I have been working at PacifiCorp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Diversity of type of work. Providing service to consumers (rewarding). Decent pay for a utility.

    Cons

    No overtime for salary. Long hours with little reward. Loss of benefits (bereavement, education support, professional license support, etc...). Very large problem with communication between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Not much as policies are enforced higher up than any direct management.

    I worked at PacifiCorp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are female they will promote you even if you have no qualifications. They give you about 4 weeks off between holidays/vacation (you don't get sick time). They do pay a bonus even if they have to lay people off just before the holidays (about 70-80% of what your bonus elegibility is).

    Cons

    Be prepared to be micromanaged, overworked, and underpaid. You will receive little or no training and be publicly chastised in front of the department if you make a mistake. Don't trust anyone (especially your management chain) because they will throw you under the bus to save themselves every time. They will lie to your face about not laying anyone off so you won't leave and then lay you off with no notice. The company is not spending any money on improvements and when the power goes out (and it will the way they are operating it) the blame is going to be passed down.

    Advice to Management

    Good managers should leave the company. Buffet on down promotes this kind of business and so you are left with yesmen who will fire anyone that gets in their way. Your employees are your greatest asset and it costs a lot of money to train a new person. Treat your employees with respect and they will help you make money. The philosophy that, "the beatings will continue until moral improves", does not work!
