    I have been working at Memphis Light full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    * Benefits (Insurance, Retirement, etc.) * Great work-life balance * Mentorship program for new engineers: This program allows new engineers to get a glimpse of the roles that other areas, outside of engineering, serve to help run the company. Engineers are also assigned a mentor for the first six months. After that, the new engineers can choose to either keep or change their mentor. The mentoring aspect of the program lasts for the first two (2) years of the new engineers' time at the company.

    Cons

    Sometimes the politics of being a publicly owned company can slow the progress that is intended to help improve the services provided to the customer.
