    Poir choice in upper Management led to a unpleasant work environment.

    Advice to Management

    SCANA has a great culture and simple values and that created a wonderful work environment. However there were poor choices made when selecting upper management. It became impossible to do a good job and changed to a negative environment.

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

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Some Training for new technologies. You start at a low salary, but are rewarded with significant raises if you're a good worker.

    Cons

    Dated management ideas (slow to accept telecommuting/flexible hours). Middle management rarely sees new personnel and mid-management promotions are based on "good old boys" system rather than choosing logical candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on "Corporate bureaucracy " and return to the Family business model you once were. Treat your employees like family, not cogs and sprockets.

    Pros

    Many of the people working there felt that it was a great place to retire due to good retirement benefits. Most teams saw little need for overtime.

    Cons

    Slow environment with little salary advancement. Also, as time went on, retirement benefits began to shrink and disappear.

    Advice to Management

    Know when to pay competitively to keep your IT talent.

    I have been working at SCANA as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    South Carolina Electric and Gas has helpful administrative staff who will response quickly to your concern. work life balance is good.

    Cons

    As a contractor you have some health care option but it is not good, better to buy health insurance yourself.

    Advice to Management

    The supervisors are doing a good job so far, should hire more engineers so the project can be completed on time.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent salary. If you start here early in your career, you might do better than seasoned workers. How you are treated depends a lot on what department you work in and the manager - more good ones than bad.

    Cons

    Found there are many people with a lot of tenure who don't do much of anything. If you work in one of these areas and are willing to pick up the phone, you will be worked to death. There seems to be a magic advancement track that has no entry point for most people. Some promotions seem random, and managers may be moved around to areas where they have no experience.

    Advice to Management

    Place more emphasis on the core values you claim to promote.

    I have been working at SCANA part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere. A comfortable place to work. All the people are very nice and the facilities are excellent. Standard work hours

    Cons

    No sense of urgency. No way to move up. The major con is location. It's in a terrible place to live forever and raise a family, however everybody that works there seems to do so

    Advice to Management

    Let things change. They have to get worse before they get better, but that's ok

    Advice to Management

    Why is change so slow there, should be easier to make changes.
