Tennessee Valley Authority experience report

  • 27.Oct 2016
  • Employee

TVA was a great place to work

2.83

Company Culture

the culture of serving the Tennessee Valley is still supported by the workers, but does not seem to translate to management.

Support from management

Leadership has changed and does not seem concerned with the individual contributor. From the CEO the head of information security, leadership seems to be focused on their own success not on the company or the individual.

Teamwork

good among teams, not so from management, empire building and preservation of executive bonuses seems to matter here.

Freedom to work independently

TVA has moved to not listening to workers in the last 2 to 3 years.

Internal Communication

communications is okay,

Gender Equality

A lot of good old boy mentality.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older contributors are forced out. our area's mean age dropped by 20 years in 2016

Career Development

advancement is through moving positions instead of promotion.

Overall compensation for your work

TVA has paid well but incentive bonuses have been cut for individual contributors in 2016

Office / Work Environment

remote work is highly discouraged.

Work-Life Balance

High resistance to work from home.

Company Image

varies depending on the audience. TVA has done a lot for the Tennessee Valley but right of way cutting and some of the lake management is controversial

Job Security

TVA is cutting jobs

Handicapped Accessibility

TVA is under regulatory pressure to meet the disabilities act

Workplace Safety

Safety is highly supported.

Challenging Work

doing much more with less is the theme.

Inclusive / Diverse

Our group in information security has all people of color eliminated as well as older experienced individuals.
