Great place to workAug 30, 2022 - Administrative Assistant in Atlanta, GARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I truly enjoyed the structure of the company and there were a lot of opportunity to grow.
I do not have any cons besides at the time we were not able to work from home. They now offer hybrid schedules!

Nice place to work - but inherent - legacy code problemsApr 5, 2023 - Senior Software Engineer in Atlanta, GARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good benefits Not super easy to get fired Most people are helpful to work with They constantly talked about how a person could follow the path of promotions to management. But there was no clear path for developers who did not want to be managers.
Most applications are missing key features that allow for someone to administer them. This means that the majority of the dev work is making database changes. They don't have enough developers to manage the number of applications that they have. The requirements of an item in a project are allowed to change during the active sprint -> meaning after you complete something, you might have to re-do the same thing again because it got changed. The development staff are deemed to be at the same level as other nuclear staff - even inter-changeable. So supposedly a person that has never written code can change positions with someone that is a developer and will work fine. Because of this the pay rate is based on the nuclear position, and seems a bit low. Most of the applications are dated, but changing them are very difficult because the people that use them want the new version to look and act exactly like the current version.Continue reading

Top heavy management that resorts to hiring non-nuclear staffingJan 20, 2023 - Manager in Atlanta, GARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
An extra day off....or close the building at noon for a few holidays as a bonus.
The company has not been able to hire quality staff (including management) from nuclear plants that actually have the requisite experience required to necessarily evaluate a nuclear station. Therefore, the business model relies on 'loanees' that rotate in and out for 12 to 18-months. Since that becomes a revolving door, they have to hire some full timers to try and bridge the gap. Unfortunately, they cannot hire quality staff with experience who want to actually work full time in Atlanta. The new policy requires you to live within 2-hrs. Except many get away with this by getting an apartment or condo and keeping their permanent home elsewhere. Working and living near the INPO building is a nightmare. Three shootings near/outside the building over 2 weeks was enough for me. Work from home policy is a joke... because the actual work gets done at nuclear plants performing observations (you cannot do these remote). Those trips are 6 to 14 days. Where you waste Sunday travel, work 12-hr days through Friday and travel home late Friday evening. For international trips its actually far worse since there is no sight seeing/enjoyment time. It may sound fun at first, but it's not since you work day and evening writing. Management tends to promote those with team spirit who say to everything vs. experience. Many examples where leadership or evaluators have never worked in a program they are responsible for and nobody wins. I've seen first hand how the nuclear plants suffer from no actual experience trying to rate a station. Speaking of that, management will almost always take the easier path to rate a nuclear plants department 'exemplary' when significant gaps were identified first hand....but since they don't have experience and don't really understand the details, they don't want to look bad at Management Review meetings. They realize if they rate 'exemplary' there is very little to challenge and thus, take the easy path. Happens all the time, and its all documented in records that plants (the customers) should demand but instead, its considered 'confidential'. But then again, when stations get rated higher than they really should, the last thing they want to do is challenge it because otherwise, it would add more work. So they don't and thus why nothing rarely changes.Continue reading

Good organization, but travel conditions are poorAug 7, 2022 - Evaluator in Atlanta, GARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good pay and benefits, and good work from home opportunities. They also work hard on corporate culture. Good co-workers who are all working as a team.
Travel is more than advertised, and the company will put you up at low quality hotels for two weeks at a time. You also share 3 people to a rental car, so if your hotel is in the middle of nowhere, you're stuck (often the case). Supervisors are frequently on travel (feels like 60-80%), so it's difficult to reach them when you need clarification for the things you're working on. Training on corporate culture/values is good, but happens so often there's little time left to work on technical products/evaluations, so we can struggle to meet the mission.Continue reading
