    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Safe work environment. A good port during a bad economic storm... at least as long as the market for nuclear power continues.

    Cons

    matrixed organization, poor information sharing, senior management has no outside experience, lack of decisive leadership, no accountability. Single market with limited buyers... thus limited growth.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to people who have experience outside the nuclear industry. They bring perspective and knowledge that you dont possess and can add value. And stop promoting failure within the organization.
