    Pros

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

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

    I worked at Pike Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Even though Pike is a public corporation, it has the feel of a much smaller company. Senior management is accessible. Employees are regarded as individuals rather than faceless employees. There is a sincere effort to provide a safe workplace.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is not always healthy. Large promotions are uncommon. You will understand your hours and opportunities for promotion when hired.
