    Pros

    You learn how to work hard and they train you very well. Also the entry level positions are competitive in pay, but up from there it pays more than most. You will also get a lot of industry experience very quickly and they will develop you very quickly.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of actual engineering work that goes on and it's mostly administrative. However being at a nuclear plant there are a lot of regulatory actions that are necessary so I can not speak to the parts of the company that are not the nuclear section. Also depending on where you're at in the company long work hours are essentially expected.

    Advice to Management

    Grow the company to adapt to the new generation coming into employment. If you don't, they will find somewhere else.

    Highest possible pay for maintenance personnel
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Zero job satisfaction and pride in work
    Only way to transfer to a different plant is to quit and apply from the outside
    Nuclear power is in jeapordy so plant closure is very possible
    Frustrating, adversarial, negative work environment
    Rotating shift work unless you have enough seniority to get daylight

    Advice to Management

    Instead of trying to constantly undermine and backstab your employees, help them be successful. Too many managers and supervisors are only interested in finding petty things to write people up, instead of being helpful.
