I have been working at Tri-State Generation and Transmission as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Work environment is excellent, everyone is very friendly and takes time to stop and say hi as you pass.

Cons

Everyone has been here for a very long time. It's hard to fit in.

Advice to Management

Designers should be paid top dollar. We make management look good to others.

    I have been working at Tri-State Generation and Transmission full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Energy company with predictably good expectations for steady employment, employees friendly, salaries somewhat reasonable, good benefits package, easy to access location, clean building in good repair, occasional employee events including picnics, wellness activities and celebrations, respect for military veterans.

    Cons

    Wildfire hiring with seemingly no direction, disparity in dept. budgeting resulting in ridiculous spending practices by some groups, broad disconnect between VPs + Sen Mgmt staff per expected goals and practices of their subordinates - resulting in lack of trust. The biggest fault I find is the 44 member REAs are being left in the dust (and I am a consumer/member of one of the largest of them along the Front Range). The co-ops' needs and support are no longer the top priority for this company and new managers at Tri-State are not fully appreciative of that fact. Tri-State is developing a "we know better for you than you do" attitude toward it's members, and that will come back to bite you.

    Advice to Management

    You are not serving your members adequately, and you are not teaching the value to your subordinates that obligation and service to the membership is your priority. In addition, upper management is disorganized and doesn't meet goals it allegedly sets for itself, but expects those in the lower ranks to still meet theirs come hell or high water. Your own bar is set too low and you don't follow through.


  2. "Less than great in the area of customer service"

    I have been working at Tri-State Generation and Transmission full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Professional and experienced workforce, decent promotion opportunities. Financially stable organization that has grown significantly and prospered over its 61-year history.

    Cons

    Poor communications at the upper management levels. With 44 board members it is often difficult to arrive at a consensus.

    Advice to Management

    communicate and educate your members and be more responsive to their needs.
