The company treats their employers like royalty. Black Hills Corporation puts safety at the highest priority which makes it one of the leading companies in the power industry. Highly recommended company to work for.
Sr. E&P Production Data Technician (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – May 20, 2017
No room for advancement. I would see people in the same positions for years. Parking is based on seniority and I had a disability and was given a spot miles away from the building. It was very difficult during the winter for me and the snow.
Electrician (Former Employee) – Wyodak Mine – May 3, 2017
This place is not to be confused with other Black Hills properties, if you are looking for meaningful work look elsewhere, The Mine is small, and if you are not in the already established clique, your advancement is impossible. Doing Electrical work here is frustrating to say the least, Management has no respect for Electricians. They also play favorites, it is a good old boys network.
Laid back, atmosphere
Pay is not on par with other Black Hills units. No organization

Great IT management - very people and technically minded Great teams - very knowledegeable and personable. Willing to help on a moments notice
Financially driven to the point of compromising security. Upper management uncaring about the massive workload placed on all of the teams. Driven to cut costs at any expense. Regardless of long term adverse affects.

Security Operations Officer (Current Employee) – Rapid City, SD – September 26, 2015
can be stressful, but overall it is a pretty easy job. Lots of note taking required and talking on the phones. I like the extra computer experience. Overall though, I only work one day a week. So it is nice. I work on a not so busy day, where I sit and monitor cameras all day.
Line department (Current Employee) – Pueblo – September 23, 2015
This company is very good at out sourcing. They have laid off quite a few positions. Management feels you owe them your life if you work here. Journeyman lineman are treated horrible. This place is very unethical in helping and maintaining good work culture and morale. Attitudes will always effect safety and production. Way better jobs out there.. Compensation is lower than most. Employees are just a number.
Good group of employees who have been here awhile
Management, compensation, morale, ethics, and team effort on employee and management.
