    I have been working at MISO full-time

    Pros

    Dedicated to its mission, continues to work on issues, supports employees and their families, great work-life balance, outstanding co-workers and colleagues. I've been with MISO for a number of years and have seen the organization grow through several difficult situations. While MISO is not perfect, it does consistently work to support the employees and families. I see that right now through the response to COVID-19. MISO's response to the pandemic has been extremely supportive with tools, flexibility and empathy. This is the situation where the noise melts away and MISO's true values come into view.

    Cons

    Issues remain in some parts of the business (favoritism, lack of collaboration, lack of advancement, not listening to negative feedback). But, these qualities impact all organizations. The competitiveness and culture are more difficult to navigate in the higher leadership ranks.
