    I worked at Omaha Public Power part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people among the workers.
    Great communication and software training programs .

    Cons

    Impossible( unstructured or voluntary denial)access to the data to perform your tasks . Qualified employees are under some non-qualified supervisors: It is like "taking a a Carpenter to supervise a Surgeon".

    Advice to Management

    There is a favoritism about the internal hiring process, for a great company as OPPD. Potential candidates should be selected base on their talent and no their friendship to the Manager...

    I worked at Omaha Public Power full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good location, Large provider or popular service

    Cons

    Seemingly "shaking things up" without seeking to understand what you are trying to achieve isn't moving forward.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you have adequate coverage. Business critical services are by their nature "critical" and not to be glossed over while you are visioneering the future.

    Pros

    Friendly employees, nice facilities, fair compensation & benefits.

    Cons

    Managers spend too much of their time in meetings. The company's current obsession with cost control is discouraging employees from proactively pursuing improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Why is it that OPPD is never among the "Best Places to Work" in Omaha?

    Pros

    not enough incentive to high performing non-contract employees. Union employees receive consistent and significant wage increases along with job security in return for marginal effort

    Provide incentives to non contract employees who put forth the effort
