    Pros

    They care about their employees, safety always comes first and the opportunity for advancement.

    Pay scale is a bit on the low side. Can't really think of anything else right now.

    Check your pay scales and try to get it up to compete with other utilities.

    Pros

    Still has a small company atmosphere, the majority of the time, you feel like your opinions and ideas are valued.

    Cons

    I can't really think of many cons, no job is perfect though. Sometimes, in my current position, I think the availability of vertical movement is somewhat limited.
