Suggestions for improvement

  • Offer employees opportunities to review their managers without fear of retaliation. Upper management needs to be made aware of managers and directors who are not effective in their positions in regards to communicating effectively with employees or who single out employees unfairly. Create open dialogue to improve the work environment for all employees. Pay should be more in line with other utility companies.

What I like about the company

Good benefits, including 401K, health insurance, tuition reimbursement, employee events, training opportunities

What I dislike about the company

Management does not trust employees to do their assigned tasks without constantly micromanaging them. It can be overbearing to say the least.

Management does not communicate effectively and share information with employees on a consistent basis so that employees understand what is going on in the company. This makes employees feel unvalued and not trusted.

Management needs to work on improving and creating more effective communication channels with employees to create understanding and mutual cooperation and a better work environment. Trust and respect is key to creating a healthy work environment.

Support from management

Worked around call center so pay is good but job has close to zero intrinsic rewards.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Telecommuting, more time off the phone.

What I like about the company

Good pay.

What I dislike about the company

Call center employees are treated as if they are part of the equipment, any time not talking to customers is considered bad downtime.
