    I have been working at UniSource Energy full-time

    Pros

    Unlike most utility companies, UNS has an increasingly younger workforce and progressive leadership. The company is not afraid of technology, even if there are hurdles to change old habits. It is a not a company that favors "sit and wait", leadership supports enthusiasm, interest and feedback. Sometimes this means selling leadership on new ideas, sometimes it means doing things yourself (with supervisor permission, that is). Company offices are fantastic, health and retirement benefits are great, office culture is surprisingly positive and cheerful and compensation is above average.

    Cons

    Like most utilities, work-life balance favors the "nuclear family" ie, employees with kids, which is a good thing. Unfortunately, if you've got family on opposite coasts or other countries, good luck. No ability to negotiate or purchase additional vacation time. 3 weeks for first 10 years is a bummer. Very few remote-work options. Many positions do not have flexible schedules (unless you've got kids). No sabbaticals or unpaid time off. This lack of time off is tough on many employees who have aging family members states away or ambitious young employees who want to travel. I wish HR would consider vacation purchase options or unpaid time-off. As a young, well paid professional, even having 5 weeks of vacation would make this a dream job.

    Advice to Management

    Enthusiasm, interest and willingness to learn is far more valuable than years of service. Years of service does not equal experience. Attract and retain more ambitious, enthusiastic and interested young people by offering more vacation time or time-off options.
