      Pros

      Fringe Benefits are quite decent. One of the few places that still have pensions in addition to 401k. Interns are paid very well.

      Cons

      Upward career development does not exist. A lot of interdepartmental tensions

      Pros

      good benefits. Lots of flexibility during covid makes it easy to take care of children during the day. A good place to stay for a long time if you aren’t ambitious and can keep your head down.

      Cons

      Success is smiling while giving flashy fake news to other employees, the board and members. Members call this the NRECA kool-aid. Culture = CYA mentality, pretenders, toxic management partnerships, unhappy employees handcuffed because of the benefits, overcompensated mediocrity. Lots of politics and ignoring the real problems.

      Pros

      You have the potential to learn lots and have great benefits but are limited with opportunities for advancement.

      Cons

      Don't expect to advance, get into any management roles or leadership positions if you are a minority or black. I have worked here for over 10 years and see incompetent white people promoted over and over again while amazingly qualified hard working minorities are passed up for raises and promotions time and again.

      Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns. NRECA is committed to inclusion, diversity and equity (IDE) efforts and to having a culture in which employees feel like they belong, are accepted for who they are as individuals, have a voice in the organization and are given the opportunity to best use their talents and skills at work. While the majority of employees gave very positive responses to our recent Inclusion Survey, we learned that equity for development and advancement is a concern. This is why all managers are currently focused on formal and meaningful professional development discussions with all staff to help maximize growth and success at NRECA for all employees.
