    I have been working at Nebraska Public Power District full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fairly good benefits package.

    Cons

    Management changes it's policies at will to suit the situation after the fact. They don't treat their employees equally, some rules don't apply to certain people.
    Like one of the other reviews said too many relatives and buddies receiving special treatment.

    Management likes micro manage only they don't seem to have a clue what they are doing half the time.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your employees backs and let them do their job.

    Pros

    They have great pay and benefits and retirement plan.

    Cons

    constant change in company direction, constant worry you will lose your job. Upper management constantly has social outings, expensive trips and meals, all while emphasizing the company should" tighten their belts'

    Advice to Management

    Play less golf-focus on your employees who are actually working hard. Morale is always low.

    Pros

    The company allows for their employees to have a great balance between work and life; allowing for flexible work schedules. The compensation and benefits are also very good.

    Cons

    NPPD currently has an aging workforce; while being a positive in the sense that it will provide opportunities for advancement in the future for current employees, means that currently there might be a lack of fresh ideas.

    Advice to Management

    I would say that overall the management does a great job.

    Pros

    It depends on the location & the department... Finding a new position within the company is very likely-room to advance. 401k match is an awesome benefit.

    Cons

    The General Office/Headquarters in Columbus is surprisingly lacking training... There is no structure. Managements' overall knowledge of the current workforce is completely inaccurate.
