Rapid growth and newness of company means that there is room for cultural development and norm setting
Generally strong teamwork environment despite being stretched for time and resources
Freedom to work independently
People here can truly make a difference and appear to be appreciated for it. However, this is not a place for people who don't take the initiative.
Generally good, compared to companies I have worked for previously, but some improvement is needed.
Some improvement here, as with most smaller companies, but you can certainly grow and develop depending on how much you want to contribute to the equation
Overall compensation for your work
Not the highest paying company I have worked with, but solid benefits and a great environment to work in.
Broad benefits package with free STD, LTD and immediate matching on the 401(k) which is rare.
Office / Work Environment
vastly improved and we are promised a brand new HQ within the next year. It looks like Senior Leadership has listened to us in this area
extremely so - very active in charitable and sustainable activities - Senior Management appear to walk the talk
there could be some improvement here.
the little energy company that found unique ways in which to differentiate itself - constantly striving to be better and generate strong customer and stakeholder value
no different to other companies I have worked for, but perhaps better in recognizing contribution than most.
I can speak to all the most senior management if I want to, but recognize they are involved in strategic focus and have to be somewhat removed.
very safe environment - no issues
being a public company needing to differentiate itself in a commodity market, the work is challenging and we are kept on our toes
Inclusive / Diverse
Perhaps the most diverse company I have ever worked at - from a gender, race and age perspective. I have never heard any comments from senior management indicating prejudice or inappropriate motivations. Again, they seem to walk the talk.
Suggestions for improvement
- Looking forward to a new HQ that takes the employees' wishes into account. As in every company I have worked at, internal communications can be improved and to a degree accountability of everyone to hold themselves to a high standard in performance, attire, demeanor etc, could be improved.
What I like about the company
dynamic, exciting and different environment. Most days, you don't know where the time has gone because it is so NOT boring.
What I dislike about the company
the converse of the above - sometimes too busy and not enough time to catch your breath.
