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

Pros

Experience is valuable and could help your marketability.

Cons

Stressful, regulatory condition, change management too frequently, lack enough real diversity in leadership positions and with the traditional staff employees. People are treated as though they are expendable. Asked to work in high stress conditions with long hours over long periods of times. Many people are reaching their breaking point at being burnt out.

Advice to Management

Help your first line supervisors be more successful. Add more women and other minorities to key management positions. Help them thru the cultural issues that have been in the industry forever.

    I worked at TVA as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    HIstorical company. TVA has a strong customer base for power. TVA has employed a vast amount of southern Americans.

    Cons

    Not willing to hire non-union personnel. TVA is heavily influenced by the Trades and Labor organizations. TVA lacks forward progression and is big on nepotism. TVA hiring managers are bias toward southern colleges. This company has lost its focus and treats its non-union personnel like second class citizens. Unions run TVA and its senior leadership are out for bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond the Mason-Dixon Line for talent.
