    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Long Island Power Authority as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is doing there own thing, so you won't feel the stress of management over your head. But if you did need assistance, that is available too.

    Cons

    Executive and managers are separated by two offices. Makes you feel insignificant :(

    Advice to Management

    Increase the salary!

    Pros

    Collegues are friendly and helpful
    Work/life balance
    Vacation accrual

    Cons

    Poor hiring deceisons at the senior level
    Deceisons are made based on political agendas rather than what is best for the company
    Current Employees not treated fairly in terms of promotions and raises
    Upward mobility is extremely difficult

    Advice to Management

    Stop making rash hiring decisions especially for senior level management particularly in Finance, Recognize your current employees and stop paying outside candidates substantially more money than current and loyal employees for the same job title.
