    I have been working at Idaho Power full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The HR team is a great team to work for. Everyone on the floor works closely together and helps each other to succeed. The leaders on this floor have done a lot of work to encourage growth and facilitate healthy change. We also have fun, there is a fun committee involved with creating opportunities to take time to enjoy each other and step away from work for a period of time. Fun has been incorporated to ensure we are...

    Cons

    There are negative perceptions about HR in general. That HR is the bad guys, however it takes our internal customers about 5 seconds to realize that we are all just working hard at our jobs trying to our best at doing the right thing.

    Advice to Management

    The conversations being had on growth is great, keep that up. The plan to bring us all together with purpose to help is also really great. Only advice is to troubleshoot more ideas to create flexibility in certain roles. At this time, it is understandable why there isn't much.

      I have been working at Idaho Power full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Job Security Competitive Salary for the Boise area Ethical Leadership

      Cons

      So traditional, sometimes not up with the times. Touts as work/life balanced, but that is only in some areas. Depending on what part of the company you are in, you could be held to a much higher standard than everyone else.

      Advice to Management

      Cut HR some slack. Continual cutbacks cause employees to feel less valued. Being told you are valuable only goes so far. Being treated as valuable is something different.

      Pros

      Compensation is above average Pension plan Subsidized downtown parking

      Cons

      Bullying is allowed Power is obtained by owning and not sharing information Training opportunities are only allowed for department pets Time off for care of family is "allowed" but then held against you as not being committed to company Managers do not know how to lead Inconsistent feedback You are not given tools to do your job successfully Managers rely on "spies" (this told to me directly from my supervisor)...

      Advice to Management

      Look at the obvious...high turnover in a department (8 out of 13 in 3 years) means that something is wrong with the leadership. Have realistic expectations of your employees and put your money where your mouth is when you say "Family is First".
