Reviews - What employees say

Company Culture

If you aren't a part of the clique....nothing you do will matter

Support from management

Middle Management at this Company is some of the worst I've seen.

Teamwork

They promote who they want....not who they should

Freedom to work independently

Only if you are being used by management to spy on certain emloyees. They use this type of person to build a case against employees they want to force out. It creates a hostile work enviroment and low marale. If you complain or speak up especially to the HR Dept....YOU become the target and your job will be in jeopardy.

Internal Communication

They operate on gossip and will lie and harrass employees (especially women) out of their jobs. The Union at this company is corrupt and will work against certain union members for the company. The Union here is a joke.

Gender Equality

Unless you are a girlfriend, mistress or "one of the boys" there is no real "equality here.

Attitude towards older colleagues

It's all a big clique

Career Development

Depends on the manager you are under

Overall compensation for your work

pay is good

Office / Work Environment

very nice atmosphere

Environmental Friendliness

good

Work-Life Balance

Long hours during stormsbut they feed us and pay us well

Company Image

The Public has a favorable image....but it changes for anyone who works here. They are not the well-oiled machine they try so hard to seem to be. They promote some very poor quality people. But again, it's who you know here.

Job Security

You have to be part of the clique....then you don't even have to show up for work and your job s still safe. It's who you know at this Company

Handicapped Accessibility

good

Workplace Safety

Employee/Supervisor tensions run high here. There was a murder suicide in the last 5-6 years that could have been avoided if HR and Middle Managers did their job here

Challenging Work

The most challenging thing about working here is dealing with the unfair tactics of some in middle management. Anyone can be taught most of the jobs here.

Inclusive / Diverse

They say all the right things at the right time.....but diversity is a myth.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Overhaul your middle management.

Company Culture

If you need a pat on the back, you may need to look elsewhere. Management not very trusting.

Support from management

I felt that I had management support in conflict situations.

Teamwork

Teamwork depends on the work ethic of those involved. For the most part the workforce worked well together, although like most places, there were a few exceptions.

Freedom to work independently

Workload was fairly distributed.

Internal Communication

Communication in my work area was lacking. Operational changes were not always communicated effectively.

Gender Equality

The company promotes equality in the workplace.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Could be better.

Career Development

The company is very big on training.

Overall compensation for your work

No complaint about pay and benefits.

Office / Work Environment

Power plants are noisy, hot, and can be dusty areas to work out in. The company was very safety oriented and provided PPE for all situations.

Environmental Friendliness

Environmental compliance was at the top of the list of requirements next to safety of employees.

Work-Life Balance

Work schedule was 12 hour swing shift. Overtime work was frequently required. Holidays have sufficient coverage to safely operate units. If you need to attend all of the kids school functions, this is not the place to work. If you want to save for your kids to go to college, you will be well compensated.

Company Image

Employees do not speak fondly of the company. Some complaints are legitimate, some aren't.

Job Security

Coal fired power plants are being replaced due to environmental regulations. Job security at these locations are at risk. The company has many different fields to work in. Choose wisely.

Handicapped Accessibility

Probably do at office locations. Not at power plants.

Workplace Safety

The company is very safety oriented.

Challenging Work

Being a utility, keeping everyone's lights on which includes your own does make you feel proud of your work.

Inclusive / Diverse

The company promotes diversity.
