    I worked at NV Energy full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, Pay (if you have at least 2 yrs of call center experience)

    Cons

    6 minutes or less. I'm sure that NVEnergy's customer base would love to know that the supervisors on the 4th floor of the Vegas office demand and require the agents to service the call and move on to the next in 6 minutes or less. This is does not factor in consumer awareness or understanding, the need to clarify information, language barriers, social barriers, cognitive barriers, or anything else that would remove...

    Advice to Management

    Stop. Just stop treating your people like they're robots. They are human. And I would venture to guess that if the CEO took a poll from the customer base, he and the Vice President would go into shock to see that customers would rather have someone pleasant and friendly on the phone willing to help out and listen to their needs than a rude, robotic, wham bam thank you maam agent with zero humanity. GET REAL TRAINERS,...

    I have been working at NV Energy full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    If you work hard they will continue to give you work. They are trying to be Nevada's best workplace by buying us stuff.

    Cons

    A LOT of workers are there just to collect a paycheck and nobody cares. No structure and very few management care. Emphasis on that's the way it's been done and it's how it will be done

    Advice to Management

    Manage the company like you would run a business. You can become Nevada's best workplace by valuing your employees not by buying them off.

    I have been working at NV Energy full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    My manager was fantastic. To date they are still one of the brightest individuals I have ever worked with and allowed me the freedom to learn on my own and lead. They allowed me to attend trainings and conferences that I wouldn't have otherwise got to experience.

    Cons

    There is no vision from upper level management and the pace that things move at is glacially slow. Any new ideas outside of my immediate team were met with hostility and angst. If a new idea was somewhat accepted it was difficult to get by upper level management unless it cost nothing, took no time to implement, and was software we are already using. Every process that is required at NVEnergy is nothing more than...

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the office and experience what goes on in your workforce. Shuffling names in the same pool of upper level executives does not cause change, consider making radical changes to radically impact your business. Empower the people who prove that they have new progressive ideas no matter their title.

    I worked at NV Energy for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Competitive salary, annual bonus program, 6 + 4 percent match for retirement

    Cons

    Outsourcing, high turn over. painful to watch needless spending on outsourcing and the failures that go with it.

    Advice to Management

    Hire local I.T. personal if you want to make any progress. It's also more cost-effective to hire locally.
