    Pros

    The health and 401k benefits are good.

    Cons

    Management is not focused. There is no direction or communication of where the company is going, therefore the day to day work seems senseless! I would not trust most of the directors to do the right thing, they're out for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    READ YOUR SURVEY RESULTS!! The morale is not good.

    They get you golden cuffed to your desk by the paycheck, good benefits and guaranteed (!!) bonus

    Non-regulated part of the business is run by the people who came from the regulated part, hence, they have no clue about competitiveness, risk taking or decision making but still pretend to be serious players. Red tape, stone age managerial style, zero motivation or leadership

    Stay a utilities company unless you change your mindset
