    I have been working at Energy East full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Energy East -RG&E, NYSEG and CMP- is now Iberdrola USA a Spanish company. They are rebuilding the electric utility grid and spending billions of dollars on engineering design and construction.

    Cons

    IUSA pays well below market value so employees with Engineering and IT skills constantly leave for better pay. Most work is done by contractors and they get much better pay than IUSA employees. Iberdrola USA tries to hold their employees hostage. IUSA imposes non-compete clauses on the contractors preventing them from hiring IUSA employees. New IUSA employees are not told about this non-compete clause when hired. You go to work for IUSA then find out you can't apply for the much better paying contract jobs unless you quit first. Lots quit anyway and turn up at the contract companies.

    Advice to Management

    This isn't Spain. The US doesn't have 25% unemployment. Salary is set by market demand not by companies.

    Pros

    Good benefits, including vacation and bonuses and 401k.

    Cons

    Stuck in a legacy mindset.
    Very resistant to changes which could save the company a lot of money.

    Advice to Management

    "We always did it this way" is not the proper attitude if you want to survive as a company.

    Pros

    The stress level due to workload is low. There are seldom hard deadlines for projects. The staff and management are friendly and do not harbor hidden agendas. The pay level is relatively good for Maine.

    Cons

    The new owner, Iberdrola, is making dramatic cuts in staffing, 15 to 20%, as well as devising massive business process re-engineering during 2010. The fallout will be that the survivors will definitely have to do more with less.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate what the final organization will look like so employees can plan ahead. Right now, everyone is waiting for the grim reaper to appear at any time. No one knows what is required to remain employed.

    Pros

    There is not a thing I can think.......

    Cons

    Absolutely no respect for employees; no opportunities to grow; Complete ignorance of senior management and Human Resources; Senior managment takes all the kudos as thier own job well done and dumps on the employee. Employees are setup never to be able to achieve anything other than "meets expectations". The work atmosphere is detremental to anyone's health.

    Advice to Management

    Resign.........The company would be better off without all of you. I hope Iberdrola comes in and sees what a disgrace you all are and they get rid of you all right away. The hard working employees deserve better.

    Pros

    I can't think of anything

    Cons

    There was absolutely no recognition and/or communication from Sr. level management to the guys in the trenches. There is no feeling of respect coming from the leadership team, and all decisions are being made at such a high level that there is no sense of reality in the analysis.

    Advice to Management

    Find some people who understand the value of the people that work for you. People are not simply numbers and quotas. If you care about them and reward them with opportunity for advancement they will reward you with some loyalty and productivity.
