Depends on how much lip balm you need. Chapped lips, ability to nod and keep your mouth shut equals fast lane to success!
Overall compensation for your work
Similar to hazard pay, TVA pays well, but how much is your mental & physical health worth?
Office / Work Environment
Most unsafe place I have ever worked. Constantly worried about who says what, who is listening and what punitive action is coming next. Management, regardless of what they say, does NOT want to hear what you have to say and you will be dealt with accordingly if you raise issues.
Could be...never seemed to get around to actually doing the work that I spent 40+ hours a week documenting and planning what I was going to do.
Suggestions for improvement
- Relieve upper management and bring in successful executives from outside private industry that is interested in actually improving the culture vs. prepping it for profit and private sale!
What I like about the company
The employees there actually care about the company, each other and the jobs they do. They want to perform the highest standards and make a difference, the management prevents this atmosphere from spreading.
What I dislike about the company
No moral, lack of safe environment. Its more about documentation and making sure no one can 'blame' you or your management. Internal conflict and finger pointing between internal IT orgs is worse than a sibling rivalry. Criticized for helping co-workers, but overwhelming amount of 'its not my job' and let them sink or swim. Daily feeling of Russian Roulette every day when you walk in the door, worrying if today is the day you badge stops working. Years of dedication and commitment are disregarded in lieu of political agendas! TVA is NOT what it used to be.
