    I worked at Seminole Electric full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Seminole has a great atmosphere and everyone is friendly. Not typically a demanding place to work. The benefits were very good.

    Cons

    Management was not typically receptive to change and changes were slowly implemented. Pay was okay considering how good their benefits were, but was a little low.

    Advice to Management

    I liked the steps management was starting to take to improve the technology being used. Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Seminole Electric full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly, low pressure atmosphere. Has a small company feel where everyone seems to know everyone. Great CEO and leadership overall.

    Cons

    For software developers, there is little opportunity to advance your skills by using newer technologies. The company is moving towards buying 3rd party tools to install.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I have been working at Seminole Electric full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and decent benefits for the area.

    Cons

    Not a lot of advancement for women or minorities. Management forbids current employees from communicating with people who have left the company, outside of the office.The HR department is very unprofessional. Management claims the culture is that of a family, yes if you are not one of the people management views as the black-sheep.

    Advice to Management

    Hold upper/mid-management to the same standards expected of front line employee. Also management should avoid a witch-hunt mentality whenever employee issues arise. Positive moral will work wonders.

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

    Pros

    High paying job for this area. Schedule allows for a good bit of time off and there is opportunity for overtime if you want the extra money. The plant is thirty years old but the company has been updatng equipment at a steady pace.

    Cons

    Not many of the management staff have any hands on plant experience and tend to manage from a distance. The end result is a lot of miscommunication with overreaction on some issues and no attention to others. Also,as with most other heavy industry, government overregulation has caused way too much of the employee's and the company's time to be wasted with compliance issues.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time in the plant on a regular basis (not just when there is a problem) and talk to your people more. You will be better managers for it.
