    I worked at Questar full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable employment. If you stay long enough and do an OK job you will get promoted

    Cons

    Very old school. Challenging political environment for women and minorities

    Advice to Management

    Management needs more training on gender bias and discrimination

    I have been working at Questar full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of experienced and dedicated employees/Supervisors that can pass along a lot of knowledge onto the new hires.

    Cons

    The employees used to have a sense of security. Now that Dominion has bought out Questar, most employees are feeling stressed and unsure what the future will bring.
    Too many bosses and not enough workers.

    Advice to Management

    Weed through the different departments and look at the overall picture of what employees are really needed to get the job done and keep the company running smoothly.

    I worked at Questar full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Questar was a fantastic place to work. I really enjoyed it for the most part. Can get slow at times, but the people there are great.

    Cons

    Very much "the good old boys club". It really is who you know, not what you can contribute. Raises are slow and steady, but if you're okay with mediocrity, it's fine.

    Advice to Management

    I feel that management should be more interested in people's performance rather than simply their tenure. They will lose many outstanding employees if they choose not to update their approach.

    I have been working at Questar full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    401K plan has generous employer match
    Accessibility to communicate with management (short management hierarchy)
    Not a boring job - duties vary from day to day and many projects available to work on

    Cons

    Company has large corporate overhead structure and inefficient IT systems and personnel.
    Corporate structure did not shrink after the spin-off of QEP Resources - it grew.
    Being bought out by east-coast corporation - future with company is unclear.

    Advice to Management

    Will be interesting to see how work life is affected after Questar fully merges into Dominion.
