    Pros

    Decent power experience that help you in other industries.

    Cons

    They will push you to try and sign off on projects that have the potential to harm the plant. A lot of people in management as far as supervisors and managers go in design are 'yes men' and don't care at all about their employees. They'll throw you under the bus. They won't fire the corrupt and shady people due to limited loyalty so I'd stay away from this place. Everything is 30 years old including the office. They never clean so be prepared to get sick a lot, I never had allergies until I started working there. The plant goes down a lot so you'll have to give up your weekends and expect no bonus. The incentive bonus program is a sham as you never see it because the nuke sites are always shutting down for something. The pay is low. Morale is always low because they don't even provide the very basics to make any employee happy. Benefits aren't good.

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits for the area. Good job security in some positions. Extensive training is provided for some positions. Opportunities for advancement within the company.

    Cons

    Long hours -- there is no work/life balance. Management makes impulsive decisions with poor results and blames workers. There is generally an adversarial relationship between workers and management.

    A good company if the Feds don't drive electrical utilities into the ground.

    Pros

    Good benefits which still include decent healthcare, pension and 401k. Vacation standard amongst piers. Depending on the office area, the environment is easy to work in.

    Cons

    Governmental regulation of coal and clean air laws that the EPA admits won't affect carbon emissions would cost utilities billions to enact or they close plants. Business units often have redundant departments

    No life, no voice. Promotions based on the "who you know" or who you golf with. Company is behind the curve with regards to latest trends.
