    I have been working at Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    4 10 Hr. days provide great work life balance. Plenty of opportunity to have impact of the future. Down to earth and extremely supportive Management. The initiatives to rebuild the plant toward excellence really hit home with those who want to be engaged and inspired to make a difference.
    Truly values employees as their greatest resource. Adam Heflin is the most inspiring CEO I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    Location is remote from large cities. Infrastructure is dated, but improving all of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up the honest, clear and consistent communication. You have a plan and we all know it. You already know how great we can be.

    The pay was excellent for not having experience of any kind. Got experience in a lot of areas with MS word, MS excel, access, quality control, answering phone, faxes, incoming and outgoing correspondence, timesheets, spreadsheets, reports, graphs, and a lot of misc., responsibilities.

    Cons

    I had been there for26 years. Ready to start a new chapter in my life

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees and they will work harder and respect you.

    I have been working at Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Great Pay and Benefits. The company is improving with steady leadership changes that have been occuring for the past 1 year. Minimal dose and contamination.

    Cons

    Little management oversight in the field has led to staff making reoccuring errors (not risk significant to the public).

    Advice to Management

    Reinforce first line supervisor time in the field to a minimum for 2-4 hours a day. Meetings requiring first line supervisors can be had after normal working hours to allow the supervisor time to supervise and lead/oversee their employees work performance.

    Pros

    Good place to work. Great area to raise a family. Great pay for the area.

    Cons

    Upper management needs to go. Employees need to realize how good they have it and quit being so negative about everything about their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    This current trend needs to turn around or alot of good people will leave the job and area.

    Pros

    Great People on the worker level. Good salary for the area, good benefits if you need them, for a young healthy person most of it is wasted.

    Cons

    Long term nepitism in management has placed the most unskilled workers into the management chain. The easiest way to get rid of incompetent workers is to promote them.

    Advice to Management

    There's a reason everyone in engineering wants to move to a few groups, they have the only competent supervisors in the division.
