The following perks were offered to me

Company Culture

A horrible culture. Safely is talked about but not practiced.

Support from management

Zero support. No positive feedback.

Teamwork

People in the field work fairly well together. Management doesn't.

Freedom to work independently

There is no autonomy at all.

Internal Communication

Terrible communication. You find out things thru gossip.

Gender Equality

They are not. Really sad.

Attitude towards older colleagues

No respect for the older ones.

Career Development

They don't allow for that. Uf you are in a job you will probably stay in it or leave the company.

Overall compensation for your work

Lowest paying Utility around.

Office / Work Environment

Stress and backstabbing are commonplace.

Environmental Friendliness

They do care about the environment. They do have a recycling program. It does work.

Work-Life Balance

It's work work work. They make it where you take work home because of stress.

Company Image

They pretend. But the truth is covered up. No I'm not proud at all.

Job Security

They make it so you have to stabb someone in the back to keep a job.

Handicapped Accessibility

They have it in place but very few are hired.

Workplace Safety

They provide Training but it's only by word not action.

Challenging Work

Its challenging but not in a good way.

Inclusive / Diverse

It's a click. If yiur in the click you have a chance of making it.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Allow people to do their job and promote positive atmospheres instead of making people tattle tale of others.

What I like about the company

I loved my first 16 years there but then they became callous and changed their culture to not caring abiut people or employees.

What I dislike about the company

They think they are a great utility but it's a facade.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Listen to the employees. Build trust with employees. Don't spew so much BS. Employees aren't stupid. They don't believe everything they're told, just because you are in management.

What I like about the company

Utilities are notoriously a semi-secure business

What I dislike about the company

Upper management. They say all the things they're told, but actions never match their words. Also make it clear they want a younger workforce. Was even said once by a Sr VP during a manager meeting.
