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

    Pros

    Good to great employees. High paced work and decent freedom to make decisions. Pay is decent but beginning to lag. Some really good managers.

    Cons

    No loyalty to employees. Just watched another employee of 20 years get kicked to the curb to cut G and A to make the bottom line look good. No training department or environmental department at the corporate level are you kidding me. That shows current management's commitment to long term stewardship.

    Advice to Management

    Manage for the long term and not for your bonus.

    Management game playing at employees expense. Some of the managers seem to be lost in their own greatness. They do not seem to promote from within.

    I worked at EnergySolutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has all kinds of potential with the acquisitions and assets that they have put together. They have the only two class A nuclear burial sites in the United States and the largest cask fleet in the country.

    Cons

    Top management CEO, COO, President etc.. at many times are very short sided in decision making almost making instant gratification decisions for there own short term financial benefit than doing what is best for the company as a whole. They do not treat there employees very well at all, as all business decisions made by top management are reactionary to the current situation at the current moment, this causes the entire company to make business decisions based on the limited possibilities they have allowed themselves to be boxed into for not being proactive about anything.

    Advice to Management

    Your top level managers hold no one accountable for anything. They allow contracts with customers to be non profitable for the sake of just generating revenue. All profitability comes from the burial site and everything else is just a accounting shell game to make other ares of the business look profitable.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunities in various field within the nuclear industry. Many types of jobs at sites around the world.

    Cons

    Senior management does not have a clue about competency vs. putting long-time, familiar employees in positions of responsibility, and it is taking down an entire division.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and see that insanity is expecting a different result when you put the same people in charge over and over, or even give them greater responsibility to demonstrate theiir incompetance.
