    I worked at SRP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    SRP is a WONDERFUL company!

    Cons

    As with many utilities, their bureaucracy and business support activities; (overhead) are out of control.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that your REAL business is the supply, transmission and distribution of power and water. Almost all other activities within SRP are OVERHEAD activities in SUPPORT of your REAL business! Those SUPPORT activities probably comprise more than HALF of SRP's employees! By their very nature, they BREED bureaucratic processes because they need to justify their existence! Every ten years or so, these SUPPORT groups need to be dramatically thinned out. I believe that at least 40% of these SUPPORT activities are not necessary for the REAL business of SRP. Good luck thinning them out!

    Pros

    * Benefits
    * Connections
    * Work/life balance in some departments
    * Learning how energy works from inside a utility

    Cons

    * Not truly supportive of women or minorities. Token female Associate General Manager. CEO thinks he has enough females in the BLT (Big Leadership Team) but is unwilling to perform metrics on female representation or female salary inequities. Heavily male-dominated culture. Women, no matter how many degrees or experience, you can expect to still be asked to do 'admin'-type chores for the group. They FINALLY instituted a maternity/paternity leave policy. This is 2016 and it should not have taken this long to institute that.
    * People who are not performing are not given consequences in any way. It is acceptable to management to have some very low performing people (who will surf the web all day or maybe show up for 7 hours instead of the 8 or 9 they should be putting in) all the while letting harder working employees take up the slack. On top of that, the people who are surfing all day get invited to strategic meetings because of their 'seniority' and tribal knowledge.
    * Politics: you can be blacklisted if you make a mis-step, so watch out! The culture is one of gossip and fear. Directors will not 'rock the boat' because they are afraid for their jobs. Innovation is not something you find here. If you come up with great ideas, it is an uphill battle and you are lucky if anything happens with them.
    * Compensation: don't expect a great salary or even good increases.
    * No career paths and little to no help from management to develop yourselves. (certain managers will do this but are very few and far between).

    Advice to Management

    Please become aware that your fears, biases, and anger that you aren't even aware of affect all the people in this organization. I would suggest some soul searching and working on your personal issues. Also, the lower level managers: please do the same. The feedback that has recently been given to upper level management applies to you too. Develop your staff. Don't let the few who take advantage stop you from helping the staff who actually do work. Don't become so cynical that you stop helping those who come and give it their all.
