      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Average salary, work/life balance decent, wealth of knowledge among leadership.

      Cons

      It's a regulated utility so it can be slow to react to a changing market. Location is in Allentown which is a bit remote.

      Pros

      - Amazing culture and values - Appreciates opinions of younger employees - Flexible work hours (may vary by department) - Decent perks and benefits - Standard 401k

      Cons

      - Management tends to alienate wiser, but more difficult to work with, employees - Constant strive for innovation when we're an electric utility - Lots of political conflicts in upper management - Almost non-existent IT support due to multi-year business transformation - Technical work is rare to come by, so not a good place if you're an ambitious, young engineer

      Good place to work if the IBEW isn't involved

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good pay, pretty nice people.

      Cons

      They will use contractors to no end but will never hire them. The IBEW is like a strong arm, extortion ring for certain jobs.

      Recommend

      Pros

      Great team atmosphere, very autonomous workload, work from home, community impact, lower management and the higher-ups are great.

      Cons

      Antiquated IT systems, very slow and cumbersome bureaucracy, anyone in mid-level management is holier-than-thou (but you rarely interact with these people as a designer)
