    I worked at Tucson Electric Power full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, great location if you like rural mountains

    Cons

    horrible management. Constantly threatening my job for saving them money and showing process problems. Had a simple infinite ROI change that would save nearly $1.5M/month and nearly fired because it made operations look bad.

    Advice to Management

    fire the whole lot. Micro-managers and incompetent managers were the rule.

    Pros

    TEP offers many opportunity for advancement. The company offers a great work-home life balance. Yearly career training is welcomed and encouraged.

    Cons

    At time politics regarding overall processes and personnel decisions can be frustrating. Management supports supervisors in their roles. This is a recent change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep steering this great company in the right direction. The future is bright.

    Pros

    Excellent pay. Great management that actually works to make an easier workday for their employees. Great benefits. Friendly environment.

    Cons

    I have been in customer service for eight years and without a doubt the rudest customers I have ever dealt with. They are angry about their bills being too high (we have one of the lowest prices in the country by the way)or power being shut off due to them not paying their bills. That is a constant conversation.

    There is also not a lot of room for growth, vut the pay is so high that people retire from entry level jobs. I highly recommend this job I have never worked for such a great company and management.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing!

    Pros

    Great company to intern for. Their policy is to always to let you put school first then work. Definately recommend for anyone attending school. The pay isn't bad either.

    Cons

    Interview process is very slow.

    Pros

    Stable employment and good benefits.

    Cons

    Slow to integrate new technologies. Management doesn't seem to understand or care what the employees are actually doing. A lot of two faced interactions on teams.

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to listen to the employees.

    I worked at Tucson Electric Power full-time

    Pros

    TEP treats its employees well. Good benefits, good pay, fun environment. The people are all very nice and I always felt welcomed. I loved the environment, people, management, etc.

    Cons

    I didn't want to stay in Tucson. Also, it was tough for me to work in an industry that is sometimes short sighted and lacking in creativity.

    Advice to Management

    TEP is a leader in solar power, I would brag about this more. Also, I understand that there was an avenue to share ideas, but pushing innovation and employee ideas would be welcomed.

    Good money for the area. Not many jobs around here that pay as well as Tucson Electric Power

    Cons

    Small town to live in. Not much to do around here unless you like hunting and fishing on your days off.

    Advice to Management

    More overtime
