Lack of incentive to work harder
Everyone is slow at getting back to your emails
I have been working at Spire full-time (More than a year)
I admire the focus on making sure the customer is considered in every decision that's made, they really do live by that.
It's pretty laid back. Nothing about my job is overly stressful or hectic.
The people are great (with the exception of a few).
The company itself cares about you as a person and your well being.
The word "engineer" gets tossed around in such a way that it makes you realize no one is either capable or willing to make decisions about trivial issues without an "engineer" involved. It really degrades the whole purpose of being one.
In relation to this previous point, an engineer at Spire/Alagasco does very little technical. Check fittings on install drawings and size regulators. Any tasks assigned as you gain seniority does not seem to become any more interesting or challenging. All in all, the "engineering" done at Spire is, in all honesty, unfulfilling.
The company also seems to have an inability to deal with people who consistently hinder work flows and slow projects to a halt.
Bottom line, if you're an engineer who wants to have technical challenges and intriguing opportunities, this is not the place for you. If you're happy just showing up, working no more than 40 hours, and collecting a stress free paycheck on your path to retirement, this is your Mecca.
Advice to Management
The culture is good, you're doing a great job of creating a healthy work environment. You listen to your employees and actually try to incorporate suggestions of improving work process. Kudos for that.

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

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.

Great benefits, Great people for the most part.
Way the Reorganiztion was done.
Good pays, good benefit, nice working environment
Extremely weak management. Management is not held to account while employes are. Employees working directly for management (in offices) are constantly given awards while people who actually move the mail are ignored.
Advice to Management
Management really needs to communicate with employees and make the workplace more enjoyable.
