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

    Pros

    I've worked at MGE (now Spire) for 10+ years in the engineering department. I've seen a lot of changes over my time here due to prior acquisitions, but I can confidently say I haven't enjoyed the type of work I've been doing more than what I'm doing now. Exciting projects and opportunity to learn new things

    Cons

    Work schedule can get hectic around project deadlines

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

    Pros

    New leadership with a focus on growth through acquisitions which provides opportunities for employees willing to embrace change and personal development. The company is looking for new markets and applications for natural gas. Very comprehensive benefit package with defined pension and 401k.

    Cons

    Extremely lean which translate to significant work demands. Most work weeks are 50 hours plus. For certain positions, salary is lower than industry average.

    Pros

    Very stable company offering unlimited ability to advance and/or grow within the company. They recognized great employees and reward them accordingly.

    Cons

    Work can become monotonous some days and other days it is so crazy busy you can't find time to go to the bathroom.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give so many chances to unproductive employees. If you see someone isn't doing their job or performing it in a sub par way, replace them. I get sick of carrying my load and theirs and also feel like I'm babysitting a grown up.

    I have been working at Spire full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people are amazing, and the new office environment couldn't be better

    Cons

    Too much turnover left a serious knowledge deficit, work life balance can be non-existent

    Advice to Management

    Try to find a way to listen to the actual employees, not just what mid level managers want you to hear

    Good Company that is growing

    Cons

    majors in minor details and does not know how to be a large company yet. Executives way down in the weeds on some things

    Pros

    Spire offers Great Benefits such as a pension, yearly bonus, 401K, Health Insurance, Life Insurance and a company issued vehicle.

    Spire Salary rate is under Market Rate. I would like to see management salaries increase. The opportunity to grow is very limited.
