    I worked at Grand River Dam Authority full-time

    Pros

    Pay was not below average for the type of work I was doing. Wasn't above average either.

    Cons

    Having to listen to upper mngmnt continually complain and be the worst back biters I have ever heard!

    Advice to Management

    Um fire yourself because you're absolutely shameful! Only the woman actually. Male management didn't behave that way.

    Pros

    Great benifits, Never get fired , Long career

    Cons

    Very corrupt, Jump through hoops for a senior management with know expeirence in their field, little respect, no planning lack of responsilbilty filling correct liscenses, Very poor security, lazy workforce, No expierence among employees do to the buddy buddy hireing system from the ceo. This company is a huge circus and a major joke that nees severe order and a total cleansing. If you dont play golf or personally know the ceo you dont stand a chance for a job. Grda is an embarrassment ask about the problems at Markhem Ferry or the Salina Dike or why they cant pay a contractor for an 85 million dollar project.,

    Advice to Management

    Cut the head off the snake off, its turning a once great company into a joke.

    I have been working at Grand River Dam Authority full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People are retiring left and right, so this leads you to be able to advance quickly. Great benefits including health, dental and life insurance.

    Cons

    It is a state agency so things such as raises and hiring can go really slow, sInce a lot of things have to get approved by the Governor.
