    I have been working at WEC Energy Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Downtown location, PTO is decent, some co workers are friendly. Union job, although the dues we pay are too high.

    Cons

    I work in customer service, there is too much much verbiage you have to read to the customer. Quality Assurance is a joke, how old are we? Why must we be chastised if we miss one word from the O.L.E?? Team Leaders are all messy! You hear them talking about other consultants, they engage in office gossip and a couple of them conduct their side jobs at work! But WE can't be on our cellphones. Lead by example.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on the verbiage to the customers train the leads to lead and NOT gossip, show favoritism and be professional. Increase the pay a little? Incentives? Not just overtime..No christmas party? No bonus? I guess we are just there to do a job and get a check...Got It!

    Pros

    Great coworkers. That’s really the only thing that is great about this company. Nothing else is positive to say here.

    Cons

    Benefits, management, time policy, systems.

    This company really needs a makeover. Peoples gas is the biggest scam in the city of Chicago. All successful companies treat their employees with respect and dignity, not here though. There are a lot of things that are done on a daily bases that violate rules but no one cares. Customer service is horrible and management won’t work on improving it. Systems are badly designed and people in charge have no clue. Innovation and raising of issues is non existent. Ideas are shot down and most people continue the old way of working. Construction and O&M collaboration is non existent and it’s causing the Chicago rate payers a lot of money. I cant wait to bring this scam out when I am out of this company.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to learn how to be great leaders.

    I worked at WEC Energy Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Their compensation package was decent with market rates

    Cons

    They lead by fear. Each of their documents start out that you are an at will employee, and can be terminated at any time. Every policy document reminds you multiple times, that this can lead to termination, and they continuously pound that in your head. There is no room for innovation. It is the We Energies way or the highway. They are accountants, that care about the shareholder, and do whatever it takes to satisfy wallstreet. Employees don't exist. Customers don't exist. They throw a carrot every year by paying good, but that is it. The only motivation they have is money. They could careless about any other leadership and truly caring for the employee or customer. Stay clear..There are way better companies to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to leadership school!

    Pros

    Co-workers are great. Company does care about the customer service.

    Cons

    Company does not invest any money into its employees. No training. Not many career opportunities. Very little flexibility on schedules, work/family balance. In their view employee is just a resource that can be easily replaced by another consultant (and they do have a lot of consultants on their billing rolls). Average pay with average benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of spending all that money on consultants that deliver poorly designed solutions, invest some time and money into your internal workforce.
