    Pros

    The Company provides plenty of room for growth, especially if one is willing to relocate. Leadership is keen to employees needs and provides a lot of room and opportunities for professional growth.

    Cons

    Having worked for smaller companies before, working for a company this big presents challenges with decision making. The corporate decision making hierarchy is way too long. It takes too long to get answers on important matters.

    Advice to Management

    The management provides a lot of motivation to the employees in many ways, tangible and intangible.
    The company needs to keep it up with its growth and expansion goals to grow into a major player in the utility industry
