Pros

Great benefits, good pay, good work hours.

Cons

Too many senior management layers, too dependent on outside consultants. Poor change management practices. Too much fire-fighting on urgent issues. No planning. Bureaucracy doubles the cost of most internal work.

Advice to Management

Focus on the core business. Replace board members with business leaders with innovation and vision. Officer compensation packages are obscene. Micro-managers in middle management are killing your potential.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Working for a public utility provides job security, and the benefits are very good. Very flexible work schedules and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Nobody ever leaves, which provides no career growth for younger people. Getting promoted is nearly impossible, and the amount of "process" one has to go through to get anything done is really something to marvel at.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee retention or your average age will always be 55.
