Pros: lots of activities, lunches, xmas parties, great salary, great people, lots of opportunities.
Cons: anyone not used to having "faith" & "church" intertwined into their work day. but a small thing, very small.
BVU - Bristol Virginia Utilities Authority is a wonderful place to work. Its a public utility company that also provides Internet, Phone and Cable via a huge Fiber Optic network that BVU built in SW Virginia. The majority of supervisors and higher management people are outstanding, and while it does have some amount of Politics, its not a huge concern. BVU treats their employees with respect, has a vast network of people you can go to when you feel something is not right. Everyone in middle-management and above are extremely competent in their areas.
There are a few problem areas but seriously given all the things that BVU does for its employees, their families & the community they are minor. The CEO is a great man and I have never heard any CEO say things about his people that I ever believed til I met him. He believes in taking care of his people. I had to be hospitalized twice and I never went one day with out pay, due to the generosity of the employees and the policy that you could donate your sick time to others.
I loved everyone there and still do. If I had not decided to come back home to help my sister with new baby, I would still (i hope) be working there.
Hands down, the best job and the best company I have ever worked for.
