    I have been working at Puget Sound Energy

    Pros

    Great people in my group. There are opportunities to work on projects outside your department. Benefits. Location.

    Cons

    Some politics in how people are promoted. Often times people are told they have a job before it is even posted. Management is hit and miss. There are some real down to earth great managers and then there are those who use the steamroll approach with little regard for casualties. Often times management asks for feedback and then doesn nothing with the feedback. It is as if they are checking a box "done" with no intent...

    Advice to Management

    Reinstate raises. When you ask for feedback listen and do something with the feedback. Review hiring practices with a little more scrutiny, especially internal candidates.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Puget Sound Energy for more than 8 years

    Pros

    CEO Kimberly Harris and executive leadership are driving culture change toward a more data-driven and effective organization. I think the CEO is smart and strong and holds sincere values about transparency, employee engagement and safety.

    Cons

    For every effort at culture change, there is backlash and resistance. The middle management level seems very political. There is plenty of work to go around, but the power games and turf wars are exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    Culture change needs to happen within the management level. Silos should be broken down vertically as well as laterally. Cultivate and act on genuine respect for the professionals (below management level) and truly empower them to lead. Stop fighting over money and make it work.
