    I have been working at Pike Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is hands down the best company I've ever worked for. They thrive for customer/employee satisfaction plus safety.

    Cons

    Everyone is a little older than 30 which is no problem but it would be nice to hire younger guys for the future of the company

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and Thank God

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers who want to see you succeed and will take the time necessary to answer your questions and concerns.

    Cons

    Very low pay, and management fails to give pay increase even when employee shows improvement and consistency. Pay is unlivable.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Work is challenging and rewarding. Safety is not just talked about... it's ingrained into the culture. Pike seems to be a very forward thinking company.

    Occasionally requires long hours. Ideas sometime take a while to be implemented.

    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.
