Suggestions for improvement

  • Don't be so quick to get rid of employees who have had problems or been sick and don't impose impossible things you have to do when you are out because of a serious emergency.
  • Just don't work there unless you are the "perfect" human being. Management at the Geysers is really bad. Not all, but certain departments, including Asset Management.
