Pros

You get a pension. You can also go anywhere in the company. Management can be tough - as in there is a ton of work to do, but the pay is worth it.

Cons

You have twice as much work as you can do. It's super hard to get into the company. It's best to start as a contractor, meter reader, or a call center rep.

Advice to Management

It would be great if you hired more people so that the ones you have don't have too much work to do.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good Pay for a part time job. You get benefits once you reach 1000 hrs. of work time. Also, If you like something that's out of the office cubicle, this is the job for you.

    Cons

    Pretty much no time for career advancement due to AMI (Automated Meter Infrastructure). All meter reading employees are "at will", which means you can be fired at any moment, for any reason management deems fit.

    Advice to Management

    Much better communication with employees, and better opportunities for advancement, such as job training, and interships in other areas besides just business and marketing.
