    I worked at Tucson Electric Power full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits (health and retirement, specifically)

    Cons

    Horrible culture of promoting incompetent white men of the Mormon religion over highly competent women of any race or religion. Executives expect violations agreements if the violation serves their purpose. Cheating rate payers is their top priority.

    I worked at Tucson Electric Power full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Supportive coworkers. Direct supervisors really seemed to care. The company really does try to support their employees. I know employees in other departments that are very happy with their direct management. They offer pension and 401k, as well as tuition reimbursement. IMPORTANT: This can be a great company to work for depending on the department and your skill set. At the very least it can be a great place to start your career before moving on.

    Cons

    Substation engineering management and director care more for the bottom line and impressing their chain of command. The attitude that asking for a raise is simply being greedy or entitled. During the hiring, and also evaluation, process they actively move the goal post so that salaries and placement levels are not commensurate with individual skill levels. They claim to offer competitive compensation, but they really do not for this specific department. In my professional career, I have NEVER had a company NOT negotiate for compensation or benefits during the hiring process.

    I have been working at Tucson Electric Power full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone here loves the company, the people are very nice and helpful, the work is meaningful, I feel like I have somewhat of a voice as an employee rather than a silent cog in the corporate machine, there is protocol in place to help prevent unfair treatment, lots of diversity in staff, benefits are GREAT (gym, cafeteria, medical care with the insurance, PTO and some flex time options). Overall I really enjoy it here and I'm hoping to keep this job for a long time.

    Cons

    A bit of a "boys club" vibe from some older male employees, a lot of meetings/bureaucracy, effective communication is difficult with all the meetings and some unclear protocol.
