    Pros

    The benifits packages are still structured extremely well and are indicative to current standards. Medical and dental are above average for area and include other insurance options. The utilities market is a very stable environment at current times for vocational workers.

    Cons

    The IT and upper management positions leave very little room if any fro advancement. The corporate structure reorganizes about every three to four years. This will include outsourcing with elimination of certain job titles without much notification. The chance for job training or improvement is extremely limited, leaving very little room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    A more progressive mentoring structure and feed back from employees that can be included in the new corprate environment would be appreciated. The need for retaining middle aged employees and advancing them over older retirement aged employees would lead to long term success as a business model and would further usless need to retrain and reorganize every few years.

    Pros

    Benefits is good in terms of generous paid time off (including all holidays) and the ability to telecommute two to three days a week for many departments.

    Cons

    Commute is challenging whether it is to the DC, Springfield, or Vienna location. There are systems and tools used that are outdated (compared to industry standards) which hinder efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to listen to the employees comments and feedback and do take them seriously.
