    I have been working at Luminant full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very willing to allow time off for Family issues or medical reasons, very safety focused, Management is extremely serious about Employees Family comes first, job second. The CEO had told our Plant director to ensure I was allowed time off while my Wife and newborn were in the hospital for 21 days and that I was paid. I Love working for this company.

    Cons

    Luminant unfortunately has had to make a business decision to close 3 plants due to market pricing and I will lose my job in January 2018. I don't disapprove, I understand they have to do this for the betterment of Luminant. Our Plant Director said it was the hardest thing he had to do in 39 years with the company. I believed him due to the expression on his face. Great Company even though I will have to look for another job after 16 years.
