  1. "Great Stable Company"

    I have been working at Seneca full-time

    Pros

    Great team to work with. Stability in a non stable market. Many learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth as the people who are in higher up positions aren't going anywhere, and have been here for some time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the open communications and encouragement.

    I worked at Seneca full-time

    Pros

    none - this is simply a paycheck sweat house

    everything - little people are everywhere, be careful working there

    Pros

    They pay for most of the health insurance costs. I have a company vehicle and also get reimbursed for my gas.

    Cons

    Sometimes what should be a normal 8 hour day turns into a 16 hour day. Travel away from family and get home sick.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. I would lose my mind most of the time if I had to take care of the things that you handle for us.

    I have been working at Seneca full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits of a large company with the feel of a small company. Excellent benefits package includes excellent health plan, 401k matching, gym membership reimbursement, 11 paid holidays + 2 floating, 9 paid sick days, paid vacation based on years of service (starts @ 10 days). Alternative work schedule available (4x9 +4). Strong & innovative GIS department, diligent environmental team, company-wide focus on safety, open-door office policy (access to supervisors, managers, VPs), annual bonus program (tied to company performance). Paid training/ professional conferences.

    Cons

    At times, inefficient communication among departments. Overbearing Human Resources dept, difficult/ lengthy process for internal transfers (lateral, promotion, or department change). Relative instability based on natural gas markets, but that's standard for the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to view & transition to other opportunities within the company. Give managers & VPs greater control over the hiring/ interviewing process. HR pulls resumes out of the pool without consulting department heads, even for internal transfers. General feeling in the office is that HR has too much power/ control and where does one lodge a complaint about HR? Can't go to HR....

    Pros

    No layoffs even with price of gas being down. Good benefits. Strong safety & environmental focus.

    Cons

    Very conservative atmosphere-you have to fit in. Land Dept. Management is disorganized and holds back female employees from career development.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent; follow procedures; no micromanaging.
