    I worked at Memphis Light full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Healthcare, dental and pension plan.
    -MLGW participates in many community events that enhance the lives of mid south residences.
    -Working downtown.

    Cons

    -This position is in the Audit Department very high turn over due to extremely hostile work environment.
    -Director & Supervisors micromanage and treat staff like hourly employees.
    -Audit programs are created via google searches, and there are no electric work papers or sampling software.
    -Large audits completed individually with unrealistic deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Consider evaluating the department's management structure. Update audit processes by purchasing audit software.

    Great benefits and employees.

    The current culture is stuck in the old days, especially when it comes to technology.

    Training is needed in the business offices just as much as in the field. Development is encouraged but it should be required in more areas.

    Pros

    They do a good job of providing continuing education oppertunities. Very stable company where you don't have to worry about losing your job.

    Pros

    Co-workers are awesome to work with. Work live balance is great, no overtime necessary.

    No upward mobility, lack of training. Slow pace environment not for the young at heart. RFP process is horribly, it takes entirely to long to make a inform decision.
